Question
Can MAP Reading Fluency be used for English Language Learner (ELL) students?

Answer
Yes. MAP Reading Fluency is well-suited to assess English learners because it isolates specific skills and dimensions of oral reading for which English learners may experience uneven progress. For example, some ELL students may struggle more with comprehension than their fluency level would suggest, and this is clearly identified in MAP Reading Fluency reports.
