A review of using eye-tracking technology in exploring learning from 2000 to 2012

Meng-Lung Lai, Meng-Jung Tsai, Fang-Ying Yang, Chung-Yuan Hsu, Tzu-Chien Liu, Silvia Wen-Yu Lee, Min-Hsien Lee, Guo-Li Chiou, Jyh-Chong Liang, Chin-Chung Tsai
2013 Educational Research Review  
This study concludes that the eye-tracking method provides a promising channel for educational researchers to connect learning outcomes to cognitive processes.  ...  As for eye-tracking measurements, the most often used indices were temporal measures, followed by count and spatial measures, although the choice of measures was often motivated by the specific research  ...  Such devices do not need to have a very high sampling rate or complicated data analysis programs, which are usually the reasons for the high cost of eye tracking systems.  ...
