Abstract: The process of lifelong learning requires adults to have the basic skills for cognitive growth, including reading comprehension and mathematical/logical reasoning. Teaching tools for adult education will not be successful unless the learners have these skills, regardless of the tool design. This paper presents the results from the pilot implementation of the “Lectura Inteligente: Agilmente” software which was completed by 100 administrative workers from a Mexican government agency. The data shows statistical improvements between the pre-evaluation and the post-evaluation in four of the five variables measured: speed, comprehension, efficiency, logical and mathematical reasoning. The social validation surveys indicate that the learners had an overall positive review of the software, but did indicate it requires effort and dedication for success.
