Technology at Home: Reading.....Why?
The format of computer based testing is very different that the traditional pen and paper test.
Studies have shown than our eyes track the words differently when we are reading online; in an F shaped pattern.

Students Must Learn and Practice on Computers...What can I do?
If students are not taught and practice how to read on a computer they will miss much of the text and not be able to answer the questions correctly.
