One of the inherent problems in developing such a program is that
there's a tad more agreement as to what things like "needs" and "levels"
are in K-12 :-)  We've *got* "Reading Road Trip", and it might be the
kind of thing you're looking for. To me, it's essentially
read-the-passage-and-answer-the-questions ... just on a computer instead
of a text.  This does have significant advantages (like being able to
get results quickly) but it's limited in its ability to help a student
identify what s/he needs.

 is the best link I could find... there doesn't seem to be a good blurb
on the product (with information like who it's intended for). YOu can
get a demo,though.

Two publishers, Bedford St. Martins and Thomsen Learning, have some
strong text-paired programs you might want to review.

Subject: Researching web-based, interactive study skills development
applications

Everyone,

I'm interested in looking at any web-based or CD-based
software/programs
aimed at college level reading and study skills development.  I'm
having
difficulty finding any, and I'm hoping some of you might be able to
help.
I'm not looking for online, 24 hour interactive tutoring services or
text-based, non interactive materials.  Rather, I'd like to look at
programs
that allow student to self-select or identify needs, find levels, and
practice sufficiently to improve skills.  The market for such
materials
exists and is relatively easy to find for K-12 and ABE materials, but
I'm
having difficulty with higher ed. oriented products.  Ultimately, I'm
thinking we may end up writing a proposal to develop something, but
I'd
like
to know what already exists.

Thanks,

David
