OBJECTIVES
To know how to calculate
reading rate
To know your Reading profile
Reading rate
is one of the most
commonly used
measures of literacy
skill attainment.
Two Types of Reading
Frequently Measured:
1.Oral Reading
2.Silent Reading
Materials needed
reading material
Timer/stopwatch
Paper & pen
Procedure
1. Count the number of words in
three lines and divide by three.
(WPL = Words Per Line)
2. Count the number of l...
Procedure
3. Multiply the WPL by the LPP.
(WPP = Words Per Page)
4. Once start to read, record
your minutes/time spent in
...
Procedure
5. Multiply the number of pages
read by the WPP. This will be
the Total number of Words.
6. Divide the number of...
Example
WPP = 12
LPP = 10
WPP = 12 x 10 120 WPP
4 pages x 120WPP = 480 words
480 words / 4 minutes = 120 WPM
Reading Profiles
110 WPM = slow reader
240 WPM = oral reader
400 WPM = auditory reader
1000 WPM= visual reader
