Presented by: Dr. Stephanie Stollar
Reading fluency has been described as the bridge between word recognition and reading comprehension. Although Oral Reading Fluency (ORF) assessments can reliably measure reading fluency and can accurately predict reading comprehension, this efficient and elegant measure is often misunderstood. This workshop will provide clarity on the value of ORF data for decision-making in elementary classrooms. Participants will gain information on the research on ORF as an indicator of overall reading competence, explore the relationship between ORF and RAN, learn to interpret ORF scores, and be equipped with instructional approaches to improve the passage reading fluency of their students.
