The Eye Movement and Miscue Analysis (EMMA) Lab is a place where researchers use eye-tracking technology and miscue analysis to study reading. Researchers in the EMMA Lab at Illinois State University collaborate with EMMA researchers from around the world to examine eye movements during the oral reading of texts.
EMMA researchers have merged two reading research traditions, eye movement and miscue analysis, to study how perception relates to comprehension in reading. The data is both a continuous record of the eye fixations and movements over an entire text and a continuous record of the oral reading of that text and the miscues readers produce.
In the EMMA Lab at ISU, Dr. MacPhee is examining the influence of Retrospective Miscue Analysis (RMA), as a reading intervention, on the reading process.
