Eye movement research & reports

Selected research in Eye Movement related to the ARC Eye Movement & Reading Awareness Lab activities:

(NEW!) 2018 - EMME (Eye Movement Modelling Experience)  WORKSHOP IN THE CLASSROOM explanation.   This handout explains how an eye tracking video with worksheets can be used within the classroom as a group workshop.  The bottom of the worksheet contains a graph that shows the marked improvement in used reading strategies by students participating in this workshop.  There are EMME workshops available for different levels of ESL classes.

 Examples: Reading Experiences in the EMRA lab.  (2017)

(This powerpoint illustrates a few of the interesting discoveries from reading experiences in the EMRA lab over two semesters.  The first part of the powerpoint illustrates NNS of English reading patterns at different levels of proficiency with one comparison reading by a NS.  The second part of the powerpoint illustrates a few reading pattern differences and similarities made by the same students across a semester.  These students read at the beginning of the semester and again at the end of the semester.  There is also an L1 vs L2 illustration of reading patterns.  The powerpoint contains offline video.)
