Similarly one may ask, how do you measure fluency?
- Select a reading passage and set a timer for 60 seconds.
- Read aloud.
- Mark the spot in the passage when the timer stops.
- Count the words in the selection of the passage that was read.
- Subtract the Problem Words from WPM to determine ACCURACY of words read.
- Divide the accuracy by the WPM.
Likewise, how many wpm Should a 10th grader read? By the middle of the year in first grade, a student should read around 23 words per minute. In second grade this should have increased to 72 wpm, by grade three to 92 wpm, grade four 112 wpm, and 140 by grade five.
Also question is, how do you use fluency passages?
How to Use Fluency Practice Passages
- One-on-One: Read the Fluency Practice Passage aloud so the student can hear fluent reading. Have the student read the passage.
- Independent Timed Reading: Give the student a stopwatch to time the reading.
- Paired Readings: Have students work in pairs and time each other.
