Administering an assessment with RFPM's reading fluency passagesReading Fluency Progress Monitor (RFPM) is an efficient, valid, and reliable assessment to measure a student's progress in reading. Teachers monitor progress regularly throughout the year (monthly, biweekly, weekly) by assessing, recording, and analyzing the oral reading fluency of their students. This data helps them make timely instructional decisions, determine if instruction and/or interventions need adjustment, and document and communicate student progress.

Periodically, the teacher listens to a student read a leveled passage at his/her instructional level for one minute and determines the student's score. The teacher records and graphs the student’s words-correct-per-minute (wcpm) score.  After assessing a student three times and recording the scores, the teacher can calculate and graph the mean of the student's scores. Each subsequent words-correct-per-minute (wcpm) score can be used to calculate the mean of the three most recent scores. Teachers can use the graph of the student's scores to track student progress and make educational decisions.​

Reading Fluency Progress Monitor (RFPM) has eight levels (1–8) of assessment passages. Each level has 30 rigorously field-tested, valid and reliable reading fluency passages representative of general curriculum.
