The aim of the present study was to measure primary school teachers' acceptability ratings of six oral reading error correction procedures. One hundred and twenty primary school teachers, ranging in age from 21 years to 59 years, completed a Treatment Evaluation Inventory which was used to measure acceptability. The six error correction procedures rated were: word supply, phonics, delay, previewing, drill, and overcorrection. Each participant received a case description of a male or female reader, six oral reading error correction procedures, and six treatment evaluation inventories. Participants were required to evaluate the acceptability of the error correction procedures, using one of the treatment inventories for each procedure, Results were analyzed using a latin square analysis of variance, Statistically significant differences were found between the ratings for the six procedures. Previewing was rated as the most acceptable procedure, followed by delay, phonics, word supply, drill, and over-correction. Separate analysis of variance showed a significant interaction between qualification and evaluation, and the number of years taught and evaluation.
