How it works
Eye movements can offer valuable insight into the complex cognitive and linguistic processes behind reading. Using the latest in eye tracking technology to measure when, where, and how children’s eyes move in relation to the words they are reading, Lexplore can detect minor differences in the way a child’s brain processes text.
The eyes of a child with high reading capabilities, generally moves through a passage of text with short, quick movements, whereas a child with a low reading ability tends to move much slower, and they may fixate on individual words. By studying such differences in saccadic movement and fixation time we can quickly evaluate how effectively the main five processes involved with reading work together.
- Word Decoding
- Phonological Awareness
- Letter Knowledge
- Reading Speed
- Comprehension Skills
In just about 2 minutes, Lexplore not only helps identify children with reading difficulties, such as Dyslexia, before they have even developed their full communication skills, but also enables teachers to accurately assess children with extremely low literacy capabilities.
