WHAT IS IT?

FAST – Reading is a scale that measures reading level based on semantic and syntactic parameters. It correlates to Lexile which is adopted by many publishers and public examination agencies.

Matching text difficulty and reader ability using FAST measures enables the selection of appropriate texts for "targeted" reading experiences. Readers are sufficiently challenged without being frustrated, resulting in a rewarding learning experience.

Learning Goals

1. Learn, understand and use English through viewing, listening to, and engaging with videos and stories that use authentic English.

2. Improve results in examinations through lesson plans aligned to the Hong Kong English language curriculum.

3. Nurture good morals through leveraging the messages used in award-winning animations and texts.

Benefits for Learners

FAST enables students to gauge their ability, and determine the level of reading material suitable for them. Through choosing appropriate texts, students will build their vocabulary and improve their reading and comprehension skills.

Benefits for Educators

By using FAST, teachers can feel confident that they are meeting the diverse needs of individual students by selecting texts of the right level. FAST also enables teachers to measure students’ progress in comparison to the standard.
