Provides short non-fiction selections designed to improve specific reading skills: main idea, vocabulary, sequence, factual recall, inference, and drawing conclusions.

Scores are kept in a record management system that enables teachers and students to monitor independent learning.

The questions, answers and explanations of the program can be spoken aloud by using the Merit Text Talker.

Designed for students in grades 5 through 11 (ages 10 and up), the software can also be used by English language learners and adult students.
