Abstract Title: Using Eye Tracking Technology to Study Motion Graphs
Abstract: We will report results from a study which used eye tracking technology to investigate how introductory students and graduate students viewed and interpreted motion graphs. Participants viewed several graphs of position, velocity, or acceleration versus time on a computer screen and were asked to match a region of the graph with a description of the object's motion. We will compare performance on the questions with audio-recorded explanations and eye movements recorded using an eye tracker.
