What is fluency? Why is it necessary to achieve for reading comprehension?

Fluency is the other term of automaticity in reading. It is the ability to read words and passages accurately, easily, and automatically in an unconscious rapid manner. It is the characteristic of fluent readers or skilled readers. They read words instantly but correctly – a phase where students can focus on the meaning of the words followed by the text to comprehend and do not have to invest their attention in decoding (sounding out and connecting) the words.

It also means that when the students see words, they do not sound out the words anymore and they read the words quickly and unconsciously. They are not aware of how they are reading as they are reading words.

How do you know if the students lack fluency?
