The Visagraph is an objective measurement tool for evaluating reading efficiency (fluency). The Visagraph consists of a pair of goggles fitted with tiny infra-red sensors that record the eye-movements of the reader as they silently read a short selection of grade appropriate text.
Following the reading, a brief series of questions determines whether or not he/she reads with reasonable comprehension. Eye-movement characteristics are automatically analyzed by a computer software program and detailed reports that provide insight as to "how" the individual reads are then generated. Terms like fixations, regressions, span of recognition, duration of fixation, reading rate, grade level efficiency and comprehension are considered.
These results from the Visagraph recording will help us understand why some learners read fast or slow with either strong or poor comprehension. This information is then used to assess the benefits that could be provided by the Reading Plus program to the learner.
