We are in our second year of using Weaver Instructional Systems (Speed Reader and Reading Efficiency). The trial edition may not give you a complete picture of how the program might interface with your computer lab setup -- or whether it will meet the objectives expressed in your curriculum design.

We have used Weaver for several years in our developmental reading

class. I am pleased with it, and the students seem to like it. I

places students at their level, and works on both vocabulary and

comprehension. It is much more reasonable than PLATO I believe.

Does anyone have any experience with the Weaver Instructional System? W are trying to decide on a computer-based system to enhance our developmentareading classes in the reading center. We are looking into Plato or Weaver. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks for your time.
