NFER Case Studies

As part of the independent research study into the effectiveness of Rapid Reading, the National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER) trialled Rapid's reading materials and software on our behalf in a representative sample of ten primaries and one secondary school in England, Wales and Scotland.

NFER also independently commissioned, carried out and wrote the following series of case studies to illustrate their study. These 11 case studies are completely independent and have had no input from us so are genuine and honest representations of how teachers and pupils felt about the Rapid Reading materials. The case studies are anonymous according to the participating schools' wishes.
