Abstract: 
Studied the effectiveness and the validity of a computer video game system designed to assess reading performance in primary school students. The system tests discrimination of letter features during brief visual displays (with and without visual noise), word reading (regular, irregular, and pseudowords), picture naming, and phonological sensitivity to rhyme and alliteration. 120 1st–6th graders (aged 6–11 yrs) in Cuba who were good readers were tested with the system. Statistical analysis demonstrated that all tasks were able to reflect maturational changes, reading skills, and performance variability. The findings suggest that certain features of the system could help to localize cognitive dysfunction in reading disability. It is concluded that the computer video game system is a valid instrument for reading assessment in Spanish-speaking school-age children. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved)
