Table for analysing and coding an individual's errors

Table of Illustrative errors, with codings

Note: This is not intended as a model for every classroom, but rather an illustration of all the categories described in the other pages of this site.

For simplicity, each example contains only one error.

Key to main categories: O = Omission; I = insertion; S = substitution; T = Transposition; GS = grapheme substitution

For an explanation of the other categories see the Other categories of spelling page.

ret = wrongly retained; om = wrongly omitted; non = consonant wrongly not doubled; wrong = consonant wrongly doubled.
