Before we go deeper into R.A.D.A.R. Method, lets introduce some helpful definitions.

 

  • Fixation: is the maintaining of the visual gaze on a single location. On average, fixations last for around 200 ms during the reading of linguistic text, and 350 ms during the viewing of a scene.
  • Saccades: are quick, simultaneous movements of both eyes in the same direction.
  • Reading path: is the resulting series of fixations and saccades.
  • Visual acuity: it describes the acuteness or “sharpness” of vision; that is the ability to perceive small details.
  • Regressions: is a backward movement of the eye when reading a line of text- good readers do it less than weaker readers, who go back to check things more frequently.
