Models of Efficient Reading.
Cohen, Karen M.; And Others
The three papers in this book treat the experimental literature on eye movements in reading and information processing to determine what factors might be manipulated to improve reading efficiency. The first paper discusses control models of eye activity in reading, research data concerning eye activity with reading material, and future directions for research in this area. The second paper examines the notion of processing efficiency in reading, reviews a model that deals explicitly with automatic information processing in reading, discusses relevant research, and suggests procedures for studying the efficiency of reading skills. The final paper critically reviews the Human Information Processing (HIP) approach to reading, assessing its utility both as a theory of how people read and as a possible guide to pedagogical practice.
