Information Processing Strategies of Good and Poor Readers as Evidenced by Eye Movements.
Heiner, William H.; Henderson, Judith S.
Eye movements and comprehension were examined when good and poor seventh graders read materials which contained cloze deletions and read comparable nontreated materials. The number of fixations and regressions increased when good readers read cloze materials. Good readers demonstrated superior comprehension under both treatments. Good readers apparently react to mission or uncertain cues by searching for additional cues whereas poor readers maintain a constant pattern of cue selection, regardless of the nature of the materials.
