Reading fluency is an important focus of literacy teaching, and can be thought of in two different but complementary ways.

Reading fluency has a qualitative definition, referring to the quality of students' reading. This includes the use of rhythm, phrasing, intonation, naturalness, and use of voice (for different characters/moods).

Reading fluency also has a quantitative definition, referring to the accuracy (number of errors, compared to number of correct words read) and the rate (number of words read per minute).

Quality and efficiency together are indicators of fluent reading, and are necessary for reading achievement, but not sufficient.

The three key areas which contribute to fluency; accuracy, rate and prosody (expression); enable students to engage in meaningful and enjoyable experiences of reading. When readers develop fluency, they are able to devote their finite cognitive resources to the more important task in reading; that is, comprehension. Research into fluency supports the key role it plays in contributing to comprehension.
