A successful IEP reading goal must be constructed to be precisely measurable by the teacher, in order to monitor the progress of the student within a certain duration of time. For example, if the focus of the IEP is to improve the fluency of the student in reading, the goal could be phrased as, "The child will increase his/her fluency in reading a passage by increasing the number of words read per minute from 40 to 80 words in six months." Another example for measuring fluency is, "The child will read a passage at the rate of 80 words per minute while maintaining a 95-percent accuracy in the words read by the end of the semester."
