PlaceMe works with the EyeBrainGym TM systems to ensure you are accurately placed so that you can achieve the best outcomes in your improvement. There are three different games working together to place you. Each game plays a vital role in gauging your current skill levels.

PAVE outcomes will confirm how much you can see at the expected 250 milliseconds. Measure yourself against your peers, and the goals set for your level.

LanguageLevel point out your language proficiency. This outcome will ensure you are placed in a level that is fun but still challenging so that you can focus on developing the skills you need to develop.

ReadingLevel is the final indicator for placement and will give us a reading speed with comprehension outcome.

The evaluation within PlaceMe is based upon accepted international norms and standards for silent reading fluency. The Norm table used by Lectorsa for evaluating relative reading efficiency is “Grade level norms for the Components of the Fundamental Reading skill” research done by Stanford E Taylor, Helen Frackenpohl and James L Pettee, EDL research and information Bulletin No 3 EDL Inc. 1960. The evaluation will give an outcome in three different areas.

The Visual processing factor is measured in words per minute. This indicates the multi-faceted outcomes of perceptual accuracy, visual efficiency and accuracy as well as visual memory when working with visual information. Your results are measured against international norms available for these factors. Visual processing is expressed as a factor.

The Cognitive development factor is measured as % comprehension against the difficulty of the content and expressed as a factor. Comprehension focus areas include lower-order and higher-order thinking skills: knowledge, understanding, application, analysis, evaluation and synthesis.

AIUF (Action-Interpret-Understand Factor) indicates the relative efficiency-related in a Grade level norm and is the indicator of relative improvement achieved. This norm shows the efficient flow of information through the brain and is expressed as a factor. New information is actioned in the brain when processing it through the working memory. It is then brought into context by interpreting it through logic, reasoning and connecting it to known information in the long term memory.

Once you have completed the TryMe, you will have the option to continue with Lesson 1 of a course. You will have a final option to continue with the rest of your course designed specifically to help you develop the necessary skills and strategies you need to be successful in the 21st century.
