Gareth McCray's Projects

2013

This funded project aims to examine English second language (ESL) test-takers’ cognitive processing whilst completing reading comprehension tasks. By means of a combination of eye-tracking and retrospective interviews, cognitive processing is investigated in general, and also depending on reading task type, test-takers’ ESL proficiency and their ESL reading proficiency.

This funded research investigates the relationship between English second language reading comprehension and a range of eye-tracking metrics. The study aims to assess whether metrics found to be associated with first language reading carry over into a second language reading context. It hopes to provide valuable insights into the value of eye-tracking in a language testing and second language reading context.
