Helping Students Learn to Read With Accuracy
The evaluation of reading accuracy depends on the capability to make words in a manuscript. Reading accuracy is the automatic process of interpretation and integration of appropriate expressions or phrases during the reading process with minimal utilization of required resources to communicate meaning. Accuracy in decoding words is essential, but the main aim is to ensure that the words undergo automatic decoding with less effort during reading.
Interpretation entails the skill to phrase and express words appropriately during the reading process. Accurate and fluent reading is the skill to decode words in a text accurately and automatically present them; while illustrating optimal comprehension, it can also interpret text expressively. As an essential aspect of reading, fluency affects the readers’ ability to understand the text.
What are the efficient methods of determining learners’ reading fluency and efficiency? Are there methods suitable for determining reading fluency?
Fluent readers have experience. They can decipher meaning from a text without human intervention or need for resources as a requisite for triggering the conscious mind.
The most favorable accurate literacy level focuses on finding meaning out of a text without working hard during the reading process. One does not need to listen intently to the sound of words but identifies the words automatically and accurately when seeing the text. An excellent reader rarely requires the need to focus concentration on finding the meaning from a text. This aspect differentiates the experiences of learning readers.
The accuracy in reading requires the reader to have the capacity to interpret or make sense of words in the text during the reading process. Reading accuracy allows one to concentrate attention on the comprehension process or other related assignments, finding meaning from a combination of texts. The ability to read has a direct correlation to comprehension.
