How fast should K-8 students be able to read out loud?

The chart below shows that by the end of the school year an 8th-grade student should be able to read out loud 151 words per minute.

(No mistakes! WCPM = Words Correct Per Minute)

An 8th-grade student at the top of his or her class can read out loud 199 wpm.

SO: at the end of 8th grade, students should be reading 150 to 190 wpm.
