Cognitive Style and Reading Miscues in Eighth Graders.
Scott, Edward; And Others
The fourth in a series concerning some implications of a learner's cognitive style for the development of reading competence, this paper reports on a study of the oral reading miscues of field dependent and field independent above-average eighth grade readers on content area materials. Results reported indicate that field dependent below-average readers used less proficient reading strategies compared with field independent below-average readers. The paper also notes that field dependent readers made fewer corrections, fewer grammatically acceptable miscues, and more miscues reflecting loss of comprehension. It also notes that field dependent above-average readers used less proficient reading strategies when compared with field independent above-average readers, making significantly fewer miscues per hundred words, more over-corrected grammatical relations, and more correction miscues, with many of these results in reverse of the predicted direction.
