artifact description
A number of studies (1) have been published concerning various methods of measuring reading rate and comprehension. The ophthalmograph has been described (2) as one of the more objective, semi-laboratory adaptations of these methods. The ophthalmograph is a portable, binocular eye-movement camera. The reading graph, or eye-movement photograph, obtained while the subject is reading a standard selection, provides objective evidence concerning reading speed, fixations, regressions, and other eye movements. By testing the subject on the material read a measure of his comprehension is obtained.
