Version 8.2: Major overhaul of base test set. Stories are longer and we added more questions and choices to the tests. Levels 3 to 13 now have 8 questions per story instead of 4.
Existing 490 Drills now allow you to train with clipboard text when you access the drills from the Menu Mode. You were always able to train with your own material using the Expert Mode, but now you have easy access to train with material that you may need to read anyway with the existing drills. When you select a Drill from the Menu Mode, you will now see an option to use text from the clipboard.
Going back to the story while taking quizzes is now an option that you can turn on or off. Some people like being able to go back and forth between the story and quiz since it simulates a real world quiz. Other people like to have that option turned off which forces you to remember what you read the first time you read it. To handle both cases, we now added this as an Administration option.
We modified the formula for the “Triple Speed” courses and drills (available in Deluxe editions) so that they end by pacing you at 1.5 times your base reading speed instead of 1.2 times your base reading speed.
Formatted Display Mode now allows you to change margin tab width.
Many other minor enhancements have gone into this release.
