A student says "It is" instead of saying "It´s" ( which is what is written on the book she is reading to her teacher). If the student knows her contractions well and just chooses to not contract the words, but say the two words, would this count as a substitution error? Or even as two errors?

Contractions are scored as one error either when the contraction is substituted for the 2 words or the 2 words are substituted for the contraction. Assessment uses the standards for coding and scoring whether a student knows the item in other settings or not.
