Often assessment is done via paper tests—despite the growing use of predictive analytics in schools. Lexplorehas devised a dyslexia screening tool that pairs eye-tracking cameras with artificial intelligence (AI) and algorithms. The tool traces how a reader’s eyes follow words in sequential (or nonsequential) order, looking for patterns. Readers at low risk for dyslexia tend to make more progressive movements—from left to right—as they scan words. On the other hand, readers who are dyslexic make more regressive movements—from right to left—and do not make regular pauses (or fixations) during reading in the same way nondyslexic readers do.
