概要 Assessing student progress in an extensive reading (ER) program can be a challenge. Popular assessment choices include assigning book reports or administering quizzes such as those available on the M-Reader website. This paper presents results of a survey in which first- and second-year Japanese university students were asked which method they preferred. We begin with a brief overview of ER and an explanation of M-Reader. Next, we offer a description of the participants and the structure of the survey. We then provide detailed results of the survey in which a majority of students indicated a preference for M-Reader. The results also show that students who preferred M-Reader took more quizzes than students who choose book reports, and they also had a higher opinion of the pleasure of reading and the usefulness of graded readers. In the conclusion, we discuss ways of encouraging students to use M-Reader as the preferable assessment method.
