THE READING EYE AND EYE MOVEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY.
Educational Developmental Labs., Inc., Huntington, NY.
EYE-MOVEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY PROVIDES THE TEACHER OF READING, THE READING DIAGNOSTICIAN, AND THE VISION SPECIALIST WITH AN OBJECTIVE AND PRACTICAL MEANS FOR MEASURING THE WAY A PERSON HAS LEARNED TO USE HIS EYES IN READING WITH ANY FUNCTIONAL OR INTERPRETIVE DIFFICULTIES IN EFFECT. EYE MOVEMENTS ARE NEITHER THE CAUSE NOR THE EFFECT OF POOR READING, HOWEVER, SINCE THEY ARE INVOLUNTARY IN NATURE, THEY REVEAL MUCH VALUABLE INFORMATION ABOUT THE OVERALL EFFICIENCY AND ORGANIZATION OF THE READER, REFLECTING THE SKILLS, ABILITIES, AND HABITS HE HAS FORMED OVER THE YEARS. EYE MOVEMENTS ARE THE END PRODUCTS OF THE READER'S FUNCTIONAL, PERCEPTUAL, AND ORGANIZATIONAL DEVELOPMENT. INFORMATION FROM READING GRAPHS, COMBINED WITH STANDARDIZED TEST SCORES, PROVIDES MORE COMPLETE INSIGHT INTO THE READER'S DEVELOPMENT. THE TEACHER OF READING USES A READING GRAPH AS A DIRECT MEASURE OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF SUCH FUNCTIONAL SKILLS AS COORDINATION, MOBILITY, AND DIRECTIONAL ATTACK, AND AS A MEASURE OF OVERALL EFFICIENCY IN READING. THE GRAPH ALSO PROVIDES A RELIABLE MEASUREMENT OF THE IMPROVEMENT AND GROWTH IN READING AS THE STUDENT IMPROVES FUNCTIONALLY, ACQUIRES MORE EFFICIENT READING ATTACK SKILLS, GROWS IN HIS ABILITY TO PAY ATTENTION, PERCEIVES MORE ACCURATELY, ORGANIZES HIS IDEAS IN A MORE SEQUENTIAL MANNER, IMPROVES IN HIS VOCABULARY, AND ENLARGES THE FUND OF INFORMATION THROUGH WHICH HE INTERPRETS. GRAPHS ARE EMPLOYED TO MEASURE--FIXATIONS, THE NUMBER OF STOPS THE EYE MAKES IN READING A LINE OF PRINT, REGRESSIONS, ANY REVERSE EYE MOVEMENTS, SPANS OF RECOGNITION, THE WORDS OR PARTS OF WORDS PERCEIVED AT EACH EYE STOP, RE-READINGS, RETURNING TO A PREVIOUSLY READ SENTENCE, PARAGRAPH, OR PAGE, DURATIONS OF FIXATIONS, AVERAGE LENGTH OF TIME THE READER STOPS HIS EYES WHILE PERCEIVING AND ASSIMILATING THE MATERIAL, AND COMPREHENSION OF WHAT WAS READ.
