Words Correct Per Minute (WCPM) is a key metric used to assess reading fluency. It measures how many words a person reads correctly in one minute. This calculator helps you quickly calculate WCPM based on the number of words read, errors made, and the time taken. To use the calculator, simply enter the total number of words read, any mistakes made, and the time taken to read. The calculator will then display your WCPM score.

## How to Use the WCPM Calculator?

1. Enter the total number of words read.

2. Enter the number of errors or mistakes made while reading.

3. Enter the total time taken (in minutes).

4. Click on 'Calculate WCPM' to get your Words Correct Per Minute result.

### WCPM Formula

The WCPM formula is:

**WCPM = (Total Words Read - Errors) / Time (in minutes)**

This gives the number of words read correctly per minute.

### Example Calculation

For example, if a person reads 120 words in 2 minutes and makes 5 mistakes, the WCPM would be calculated as follows:

**WCPM = (120 - 5) / 2 = 115 / 2 = 57.5 WCPM**

This means the person read 57.5 words correctly per minute.

### Why WCPM is Important?

WCPM is widely used in education to measure reading fluency. Higher WCPM scores indicate better fluency, which is crucial for comprehension. Monitoring and improving WCPM can help readers improve their overall reading skills.
