The Stern Fixation Test was investigated for its usefulness as a screening test for detecting visual problems associated with reading. Preliminary norms were established based on age and reading level, significant relationships between these norms and subject reading level for certain groups were found, and correlations between Stern Fixation Teat scores and the 21-point examination were found to be of low order. While the Stern Fixation Test cannot be expected to screen for all visual factors involved in reading, it can serve as a useful screening tool for many visual factors related to reading difficulties.
