Our goal for this book is to offer the guidance needed to use these and other tools in an RTI framework. This is a book about the assessment component of RTI. We offer guidance and tools for gathering the information needed in an RTI framework. We have tried our best to write a book that is both practical and specific, that reflects both research and common sense, that is consistent with standards, and that affords guidance in the issues central to RTI"--

This resource provides teachers with approaches to fluency instruction that are effective, engaging, and easy to implement.

They follow up with authentic approaches to reading fluency that teachers and literacy interventionists can immediately use to improve students’ overall proficiency in reading. A unique feature of the book are the participation sections “What do you think?” and “What we think,” which challenge the reader to engage in issues related to fluency—from concept, to assessment, to instruction—and then check their views against those of the authors.

This study has been conducted to find if there is a significant difference in oral reading fluency rates of third-grade students who participated in a buddy reading program compared to third-grade students who did not participate in a buddy reading program. The study also analyzed if there is a relationship between students' ability level and oral reading fluency. This study was based on the theory of Social Development presented by Dr. Lev Vygotsky. The study was conducted with twenty third-grade students who are part of a Midwest school. The assessment used to collect the raw data was a 3-Minute Reading Assessments from Scholastic Teaching Resources. Students were asked to read as many words as possible, from a passage at their grade level, within a one-minute time frame to calculate their reading fluency rate, words per minute. The findings supported both research questions and rejected the null hypotheses. The study found that there is a significant difference in oral reading fluency rates of third-grade students who participated in a buddy reading program compared to those who did not participate and that there is a relationship between students' ability level and oral reading fluency.
