Oral Reading Fluency
A More Precise Measurement of Students' Abilities for Grades 2-12
Progress monitoring for Oral Reading fluency is essential to making sure that all students become fluent readers. By measuring words read correctly per minute, reading accuracy and passage difficulty, teachers can make well-informed and timely decisions about the instructional needs of their students.
Measures WCPM, Accuracy, and Passage Difficulty
The Lexile® oral reading measures developed by MetaMetrics® provides a new metric for gauging growth in oral reading fluency. The measurement uses the three components of oral reading (WCPM, accuracy, passage difficulty) to produce students’ Lexile oral reading measures. Because it is reported on the Lexile scale, a developmental scale, it allows educators to monitor student growth over time.
