Read Theory (readtheory.org) is a free, online reading practice platform that supplies students with an extensive library of passages catered to individual levels. Since my trial and research into the software, the language program at Miyazaki International College has adopted it as part of the program. The fact that it's free and offers great user statistics is a bonus. Learners are assessed on comprehension through a series of multiple choice questions and optional written responses. The system uses algorithms and Lexile (lexile.com) level information to initially place students in the initial reading level assessment and in subsequent reading practices. The questions are designed to improve critical thinking ability as well as an understanding of scope, structure, intention, memory, and vocabulary. This poster reports on a a questionnaire addressing student perceptions of the platform. It was presented at the JALTCALL 2017 Conference in Matsuyama, Shikoku.
