A second-grade student reads Level L with 98% accuracy and excellent comprehension. However, fluency score was 0-1. Do we continue to test for Instructional Level?

Those are the instructional decisions teachers must make. It would seem to be a good idea to work at that level to build fluent reading before moving to higher levels. However, fluent reading should be taught at any level so if there is a group where this student fits you don't have to be tied to a certain level. Consider what is best for your situation.

Best wishes for success!
