Word Reading Fluency — Unrelated words are strung together on lines without any space between them, and the student must quickly mark the word boundaries of as many words as possible in 3 minutes. For example, the student would indicate the word boundaries of "ofgoliketwobig" by inserting slash marks in the appropriate places — "of/go/like/two/big."
