This presentation provides educators with an understanding of brain development and the cognitive processes that support reading fluency. Participants learn what eye movements and brain research reveal about the cognitive processes involved in fluent reading. Participants learn how to make better decisions regarding test selection and test interpretation as a foundation for meaningful recommendations. In the end, participants learn to bridge the link between science, assessment, and effective instruction to support gains in reading fluency.
