    This is not truly an issue. I don't know what you set as your grade level or reading level. I also don't know which point you were at in the software. Frequently, there is only one question answered incorrectly. I don't fully understand the algorithm as that is proprietary information. Please email me directly at AskDee@sbglobal.net. I'll send you a Best Practices Guide and connect you to some other explanations of the Reading Inventory. Dee, Ask Dee at the READ 180 Community
