Representing Miscue Analyses

Educators use miscue analysis to reveal whether students are flexibly using syntactic, semantic, and graphophonic systems for meaning-making with a text by asking four essential questions:

  2. Does what they say make sense?
  3. Does the reading change the meaning of the sentence in a way that matters in the whole text?
  4. Are the miscues graphophonically similar to the text?
A spider or radar chart shown below is a useful visual representation that easily depicts the strengths and weaknesses in strategies the child is using.  Try it below! (Be sure to enter values between 0-100)

Here are also some signs to look out for that may demonstrate a preference in strategy that a child may be using:
