The purpose of this book is multifaceted; it is primarily dedicated to exploring the nature of the Fundamental Reading Process and to discussing the manner in which proficiency in these basic skills can be evaluated through eye-movement recording. Major topics include: the history of eye-movement recording; exploring eye-movement recording through the use of the Visagraph Eye-Movement Recording system; uses of eye movements in terms of reading appraisal; field use of the Visagraph system by schools, clinics, and optometrists; Visagraph EyeLink comparison in terms of eye-movement data; and the 2012 Visagraph Norm Study Report. Reading and tutoring centers will be very interested in both the diagnostic eye-movement recording techniques as well as the web-based practice techniques available through computer technology. Reading researchers will also be intrigued by the comprehensive description of the silent reading process, as well as the effect on the oral reading process with the development of proficiency in silent reading. Especially helpful is the information revealed through eye-movement recordings about the many subliminal factors involved in the process of reading, as well as the changes produced by today's web-based computer techniques to modify the basic visual/functional, perceptual, and information-processing skills that comprise the silent reading process. In addition, the book will serve as a resource for graduate courses that cover what occurs during silent reading and what outcomes are possible with current reading practice programs using web-based computer technology. This unique text is essential reading for all who want to understand the role of the eye in silent reading and want to increase their instructional capability as teachers and remediation specialists.
