We suggest you login to readtheory.org account and take their placement quiz to find out your readtheory.org reading level. This quick quiz will rank you at their level 1 through 13.
To enter this programme, we recommend you have a readtheory.org reading level of at least 9. If your reading level is much lower than this, using the materials at readtheory.org is one way to develop your skills. Another way is to ask your local librarian for suggested reading materials.
