The procedure used by MSPs to correct inaccurate comments is to be considered by a Holyrood committee.
Members of the Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee are to examine the issue after the Presiding Officer admitted there is still confusion about it.
Tricia Marwick raised the issue with the committee after First Minister Alex Salmond was accused of trying to quietly change the official record of what was said inside the debating chamber.
Mr Salmond asked for a figure on the number of green energy jobs in Scotland to be corrected without widely publicising the alteration with MSPs, Conservative MSP Liz Smith said.
Last month the First Minister wrongly told Parliament about 18,000 people were employed in renewable energy across Scotland when the total is closer to just 11,000, according to industry body Scottish Renewables.
Ms Smith raised the issue with the Presiding Officer, asking her whether "it is acceptable for a member to amend a substantive point without notifying the Parliament in the usual manner".
The mechanism by which an MSP can correct an incorrect statement was introduced in Holyrood in October last year. When a correction is made to the official record, the incorrect information remains on it, with the correction appearing beside it, to indicate that the MSP concerned has identified the error.
In a letter to the committee, Ms Marwick said "recent comments from a number of members have highlighted that there remains some confusion on the process adopted".
She then invited them to "look again at the current process, in terms of transparency and general understanding".
Committee convener Dave Thompson said: "The mechanism this committee put in place ensured there is a full audit trail behind any correction, so that you see the original official report and also how a member has sought to correct the record. Our committee recognises this is an important issue and it will look closely at ways in which we can improve publicising corrections, so that there is full openness and transparency."
