Study Series Four: A Developmental Look at Eye Movement Patterns of Internally and Externally Controlled Children Watching Two Instructional Modes.
Baron, L.; O'Bryan, Kenneth G.
Much early research regarded television as a static medium, and it ignored the process of the information delivery and its match with the cognitive style of the viewer. Information processing should be looked at from the dual perspective of eye movement research and the degree of locus control. To uncover the interrelationships of efficient eye scanning, internal control, and learning, a research model has been conceived which will test how much comprehension results when samples combining varying degrees of internal control and eye movement are exposed to different media presentations.
