Tools to Measure Fluency

Multiple measures must be used to assess all of the dimensions of fluency. Phrasing and expression, qualitative components (data that describes)of fluency, can be assessed using a rubric. Grade-level rate and accuracy, quantitative components (data expressed in numbers), can be assessed using a screener such as DIBELS Next. Rate assesses the number of words read per minute and provides teachers with a measure of the student’s automaticity.
