Eye Movement Analysis of Task and Content Commonalities in Information Processing.
Dillon, Ronna F.; Stevenson-Hicks, Randy
A study examined the extent to which common knowledge structures and the presence of common performance components are important factors in reasoning. The eye fixations of 37 college students were recorded as they solved four types of complex inductive reasoning tasks: (1) verbal analogies, (2) figural analogies, (3) verbal series completions, and (4) figural series completions. Results showed that item-type manipulations resulted in significant differences in information processing, reflecting the role of common knowledge structures in reasoning task performance. (FL)
