This paper studies the cognitive processes involved in reading among Spanish-speaking university students with dyslexia, and proposes to evaluate these processes to identify specific cognitive traits. On this basis, an automated battery for the assessment of cognitive processes was designed to be included in a learning management system (LMS). To integrate this battery into the LMS, a web service architecture that works independently of the LMS was designed. The assessment battery has been built based on a multimodal communication mechanism that delivers evaluation tasks using the visual, auditory, and speech communication channels of human-computer interaction.
