New Miscue Analysis: A Tool for Comprehending Reading.
New miscue analysis, which combines characteristics of cloze procedure with traditional miscue analysis, seems to overcome some of the limitations encountered in the traditional method. In new miscue analysis, subjects read selections below and at their level of reading ability and are not agitated by being asked to read material that is too difficult. The technique also offers a means of discriminating at all points along the reading ability continuum, from young to adult readers. Preliminary research on new miscue analysis shows that it generates more responses for analysis per number of words read than does miscue analysis. By retaining all the features of miscue analysis, the new technique provides a similar "window on the reading process" as before--that is, it still provides classroom teachers with qualitatively useful information--while offering a means of calculating an index of reading progress.
