When tallying "reading errors" after the student has finished their reading, should all errors of the same word(s) each add to the tally? I am assuming they do not. So, for example, if a child misreads the word "shopping" 6 times, that is only counted as one mistake. Correct? Thanks so much in advance!

Please follow the guidelines for coding and scoring found in your Assessment Guide or online resources. Every word misread counts as an error every time unless it is a proper noun as defined in those directions. If you are unsure of what is a substitution you can view the Tutorial video where this is explained in more detail.

If "shopping" is misread 6 times it is counted as 6 errors. This gives valuable information to guide your instruction. Analyze the child's thinking while reading, looking beyond the numbers. The analysis section of the Assessment Guide provides more information about this as well a the video.

Thank you for maintaining the integrity of the assessment. Best wishes for success!
