09:30 - 09:45: Introduction to eye tracking for language researchers.
This session will outline the ways in which language researchers have used eye tracking technology to gain important insights into language processes.
09:45 - 10:30: Set up and Calibration for reading research.
This practical session will cover setting up and calibrating participants using the EyeLink 1000 Plus, in both desktop and tower mounts, as well as the Portable Duo. The session will include advice on how to maximise and measure data quality.
10:30 - 11:00: Tea / Coffee Break
11:00 - 12:30: Reading Research
A practical introduction to setting up a basic sentence reading tasks in Experiment Builder, using a range of worked examples to explore topics such as creating interest areas at letter, word and sentence levels and adding comprehension questions. The session will also cover the creation of gaze-contingent tasks such as moving window and boundary crossing paradigms.
12:30 - 13:30: Lunch
13:30 - 14:30: Standard Reading Measures:
Learn how to use Data Viewer and the “Get Reading Measures” tool to extract a range of common reading measures from sentence and paragraph reading tasks.
14:30 – 15:30: The Visual World Task:
Learn how to program a range of visual world tasks. The session will use worked examples, and demonstrate how to extract timing information using audio software.
15:30 - 16:00: Tea/Coffee Break
16:00 - 17:00: Time Series Analysis:
Using Data Viewer, we will create and interpret time series (binning) reports using data from Visual World tasks.
