The development of our Monitor for Initial Reading (MIR) is based on two global ideas. The first is that the software has to be developed on an incremental basis. MIR must be made so that it can be put to test and modified at almost any phase of development. The second idea underlying MIR is that individual reacling exercises, which are dedicated to certain subskills of reading, should be the most elementary constituents of MIR, and not descriptions of what is learned in initial reading. The motivations and some of the consequences of these two guidelines are presented in this paper. A short description of the structure of the program is aIso given and the possible generalization to domains other than initial reading is discussed .
