Evaluating Error Correction Procedures for Oral Reading. Technical Report No. 55.
Jenkins, Joseph R.; Larson, Kathy
Six procedures for correcting oral reading errors were examined. Five learning disabled, junior high students served as subjects in the experiment, which consisted of five phases each lasting a minimum of seven days. Treatment effects were assessed on two word recognition measures one day after corrections were applied. Results indicated that some form of error correction tended to be significantly superior to no correction, but that many correction procedures used by teachers appeared to produce rather small effects on word recognition. One correction procedure which consisted of isolated word drill far exceeded the other corrections, and produced relatively high levels of word recognition. Results are discussed in terms of their implications for instructional practice. (Author)
