Analysis and Comparison of Oral Miscues Generated by First Grade Students on Four Different Reading Tasks.
Vorhaus, Renee Pool
Miscue responses of 20 first-grade pupils to 20 stimulus words were compared and analyzed for four different reading tasks: (1) in isolation, (2) in 10 free-standing sentences, (3) embedded in a complete story, and (4) embedded in an illustrated story. Analysis using the Reading Miscue Inventory indicated a significant gain in correct responses to the stimuli embedded in a meaningful context. Comparison of miscues indicated that miscues spaced across context were not as much of a problem as were a number of meaning-destroying miscues in one sentence, and that one miscue seems to influence other responses in a sentence. Differences in reading proficiency were not based on ability to identify graphic cues, but on awareness that reading is a meaning-constructing process. (Author/AA)
