Eye tracking, changing reading assessment as we know it.
By Søren Jegindø

The studies of Eye movements have shown that proficient readers do not skip words, neither use context to process words or bypass phonics in establishing word recognition.

Reading requires letter-wise processing of the printed text and the ability to match symbols with the speech sounds that they represent. If you watch the eyes of a person scanning text at a normal rate, the eye seems to be ahead of the voice when we read aloud. Therefore tracking eye movements is vital for reading assessments.

Here are 7 benefits of eye tracking during reading assessment.

1- Enables objective measurements of reading fluency.
2- Boosts concentration.
3- Enables the ability to correlate speech with print.
4- Screens the abilities that need brushing.
5- Recalls Retention.
6- Increases questioning curiosity.
7- Improves virtual perception.

The use of eye-tracking to assess reading fluency is considered an efficient screening method as it screens out the abilities a child possesses or the abilities that need to be re-worked.
