Eye Movements During Reading Can Predict Deep Comprehension

EasyChair Preprint no. 3838

10 pagesDate: July 12, 2020


It is known that eye movements during reading reflect various reading processes as well as reader skill and attentiveness, but there is little work relating eye movements to reading comprehension outcomes. This work represents a novel step by showing that deep comprehension assessed by open-ended self-explanations during reading (r=0.39, p<0.001) can be predicted from eye movements in a person-independent manner. Our results have implications for theories of reading and for the design of real-time interventions.

Keyphrases: comprehension, eye movement, gaze tracking, machine learning, reading, reading comprehension, self-explanation
