Building upon Reading Strategies through Retrospective Miscue Analysis

Jacob R. Hurst♦
Dr. Rebecca Dierking, Faculty Mentor

This case report focuses on a group of students’ individual reading skills and strategies and how they can grow or learn from them by use of Retrospective Miscue Analysis (RMA). To begin, students were given a reading survey asking to discuss their own reading strategies and preconceived notions of what it means to be a good reader. Individually, an RMA was conducted in which students read a passage aloud and delivered a brief summary of the text. The miscues, or errors, were marked. On a later date, a conversation was held with the student about the miscues that were made and if the miscues hindered the student’s understanding of the text along with a short conversation about the student’s reading process and how their reading strategies were used. The data displays an insight into an individual’s reading process and strategies that go beyond those mentioned in the reading survey.
