We present T-MASTER, a tool for assessing students’ reading skills on a variety of dimensions. T-MASTERuses sophisticated measures for assessing a student’s reading comprehension and vocabulary understanding.Texts are selected based on their difficulty using novel readability measures and tests are created based on thetexts. The results are analyzed in T-MASTER, and the numerical results are mapped to textual descriptionsthat describe the student’s reading abilities on the dimensions being analysed. These results are presented tothe teacher in a form that is easily comprehensible, and lends itself to inspection of each individual student’sresults.
