Automaticity is a general term that refers to any skilled and complex behavior that can be performed rather easily with little attention, effort, or conscious awareness. These skills become automatic after extended periods of training. With practice and good instruction, students become automatic at word recognition, that is, retrieving words from memory, and are able to focus attention on constructing meaning from the text, rather than decoding.
Quick, sure recognition of words without the need for word analysis.
The property of performance of a skill that makes it no longer depend upon effortful, conscious monitoring, such as learning to drive a car or other cognitive skills like reading or playing chess.
