    We don't grade our students in fluency but do use a rubric to let the students know what the expectations are. First of all... checking fluency shouldn't be on a first read of text. Kids should get to practiced and show you their best effort. Our rubric evaluates 4 aspects of fluency and each has an icon to help the kids remember:
    I read quickly (cheetah)
    I read smoothly (swan)
    I remembered most of the words (elephant)
    I read with expression (monkey)

    I am thinking of adding an icon for "I read the punctuation" because we have been working on this a lot... I am not sure of an icon yet!

    The kids practice with partners and use the rubric to evaluate each other. You could modify it for your class, model your expectations and add point values if you must assign a grade.
