Automation of oral reading assessment and of feedback in a reading
tutor is a very challenging task. This paper describes our research
aiming at developing such automated systems. First topic
is the recording and annotation of CHOREC, the Flemish database
of children’s oral reading we develop in order to characterize oral
reading processes statistically. Next, we propose a classification
of both oral reading strategies and errors, which provides the basis
of the envisaged assessment and feedback. Finally, experimental
results show that our two-layered recognition system is able to provide
high reading miscue detection rates, while only few correctly
read words are erroneously tagged as miscue.
