Abstract Two studies examine differences in the processing strategies of beginning readers, as indicated by an analysis of oral reading errors. Subjects were 66 Year 1 children; representing two levels of reading ability (good/poor), and two forms of reading instruction (LERP/Mount Gravatt), both employing the language experience approach. Oral reading errors were categorized according to criteria adapted from Y. Goodman and Burke (1972), and scores were analysed by multiple discriminant analysis. The good readers showed greater control of the syntactic and semantic cueing systems as compared to poor readers (Study 1); and readers taught under the Mount Gravatt Program showed some evidence of greater control of the semantic cueing system as compared to readers taught under LERP (Study 2). Results for the latter comparison are interrelated with text effects, in that findings pertain only to each group's reading of its own (i.e. familiar) reading material.
