Instrumentation and Software for the Collection, Analysis, and Interpretation of Eye Movement Data during Reading. Technical Report No. 3.
Hirschfeld, Rafael; Bieger, George
Noting that the equipment traditionally used in eye movement research is both expensive and stationary in nature, this report describes apparatus for collecting and interpreting eye movement data that is both relatively inexpensive and portable. The report lists and describes hardware and software components of a data collection and data analysis system that provides precise information regarding the location, duration, and sequence of eye fixations during the reading of materials that are composed of both text and pictures. It also describes a procedure for collecting eye movement data in nonlaboratory settings, such as classrooms. (Author/FL)
