A Study of Reading Errors Using Goodman's Miscue Analysis and Cloze Procedure.
Farren, Sean N.
A study of 11 boys, aged 12 to 14 with low reading ability, was conducted to discover what kinds of errors they made and whether or not differences might exist between error patterns in silent and oral reading. Miscue analysis was used to test oral reading while cloze procedures were used to test silent reading. Errors were categorized according to their linguistic nature (graphic, semantic, or syntactic) and then were scaled in terms of their proximity to the expected response. Results of the two types of tests were similar. While such readers may appropriately exploit their ability to respond to grammatical cues, they appear to have poorly established strategies for responding to the graphic cues of words in a text. A general weakness in responding to semantic cues was also noted. (TJ)
