Another thing about the software mentioned in the article, which tracks whether students are reading their assignments and how long they spend on each page: it would have gotten me in trouble as a kid, because I read so much faster than most students. "You couldn't really have read it, Duncan, because you got through the Dick and Jane book in fifteen minutes. It should have taken you an hour. And didn't I tell you not to read ahead of the assignment?"
