An Evaluation of Oral Reading Miscues in Second Grade Subjects.
Jackson, Sheila M.
This study examined the revised Goodman taxonomy, the Oral Reading Miscues Inventory, as a means of evaluating reading achievement. A sample of 128 second-grade students was tested with a standardized reading test, the Gates-MacGinitie Reading Test, to determine their current reading achievement levels. Causal conversation was recorded on tape for an analysis of dialect influences upon the miscues. Then an oral reading inventory, a modified version of Gray's Oral Reading Test, was administered and an evaluation of student performance was conducted with the Oral Reading Miscues Inventory. Eight factors were identified from the 38 variables in the inventory and then were correlated with three Gates-MacGinitie Reading Test scores. The results indicated that students who performed poorly on the Gates-MacGinitie Test also performed poorly on the Oral Reading Miscues Inventory. (Author/MKM)
