Introduction

  • Why fluency?

  • Does it help?

  • Research of using fluency procedures as a means to help students reach true mastery.

    • ( Binder, 1978)


What is fluency l.jpg
What is Fluency?

  • = accuracy + speed

    = Quality + pace

    = doing the right thing w/o hesitation

    = automatic or “Second Nature”

    = True mastery

    (Binder, Carl 2004)


With percent correct we can t tell the difference l.jpg
With percent correct we can’t tell the difference

  • Percent correct handicaps our students, when we fail to measure along the time dimension, use impose a serious constraint on our expectations for students, as well as on the likelihood that we will work to “normalize” their skill proficiencies.”

    (Binder, Carl 1978)


With percent correct measures can t go higher than 100 l.jpg
With percent correct measures, can’t go higher than 100%

  • 2 students receive 100% in a program, however one completes task in 1 min. and the other in 15 min.

  • What does this tell us


Procedures l.jpg

  • “If you want to get better at it, you have to practice. There’s no other way to do it. For me practicing is fun – I enjoy improving myself, and I enjoy developing new skills.”

    (Jordan, Michael 1991)
