When a reader sometimes miscues a proper noun, do you alter the word count to give credit for the times when the reader says the noun correctly? Example: a name appears five times in the text and the reader miscues it twice and gets it correct twice. The original word count is 100. Is the new word count 100 minus 5 or 100 minus 3 (or something entirely different)?

Proper nouns are coded each time a misreading occurs but is only scored as one error for the entire text. The Coding and Scoring at-a-glance in your Assessment Guide or Online Resources explains the coding and scoring for multiple substitutions for proper nouns and other words.

Best wishes for success!
