Reading FAST or Reading WELL? Putting Fluency in Perspective

July 20, 2020

This session on reading fluency—presented by one of the nation’s experts on this topic—provides a functional definition of fluency and clarifies the role of curriculum-based measures (CBM) of oral reading fluency (ORF), often used to screen students and monitor their overall progress in reading. What do these measures really tell us and how should they be used appropriately?  Research-supported fluency instruction will also be addressed. This session provides an opportunity to reflect on how fluency should fit into a comprehensive and effective reading program.
