Fluency Timer is a one-minute digital timer that automatically records students' fluency readings. Just press record and the software does the rest. At the end of 60 seconds, name your file and send to iTunes where you can play for parents, coaches, and students.
It's designed to be simple enough that both teachers and elementary students can use it.
Teachers can use fluency passages that are already a part of their educational program or hundreds of free passages can be downloaded from the Resources section of the Fluency Timer Support site.
Using Fluency Timer will revolutionize fluency assessment, provide an instant independent work time activity, and help students' reading fluency to skyrocket.
Research has shown that having students listen to themselves reading increases students' reading fluency as they hear their own mistakes and work to correct them. By recording fluency assessments, teachers can review results, share recordings with parents, and allow students to hear themselves and practice to read better.
