In this paper we present the results of an experimental evaluation of a training programme for comprehensive reading. The training programme was constituted by a set of learning strategies supported by web-based application. The subjects were 4th grade elementary students. The hypothesis stated that students trained on the learning strategies and supported by the web based application (experimental group) would significantly improve their reading comprehension in contrast with those students that did not take part in the programme (control group). The results indicate that the experimental group improved its reading comprehension level compared with the control group.
