The purpose of this study was to examine the effectiveness of the Six-Minute Solution program for reading fluency. Three pairs of fourth grade students were chosen for this intervention during a four week time period. The pairs of students came from various levels of reading fluency. In the pairs of students, one student read the Six-Minute Solution passages while the other partner helped track the first student's progress. The intervention lasted approximately six minutes a day, five days a week. Participants were audio recorded when necessary and the progress was monitored weekly using AIMSweb fluency probes (Reading Curriculum-Based Measurement). The participants were compared to the nationally normed average for rate of improvement according to AIMSweb. The conclusion was that the program helped build confidence, improved reading fluency, and created the determination to read more throughout the day to continue progress.The purpose of this study was to examine the effectiveness of the Six-Minute Solution program for reading fluency.
