We know that a proper noun is counted as incorrect only the first time. If a student reads Mr. Brown as Miss Bear is it 2 errors(one for each part) or one error (1 total name)? Stacey

Hi Stacey, That would be 2 errors since the total word count is 123 running words (RW) for that text and both Mr. and Brown are calculated as part of that word count. In addition, the reader made two substitutions: Miss for Mr. and Bear for Brown.


Best Wishes as you continue to assess,
Helenann
