Abstract

Saccade-fixation skills were evaluated in 556 first and fourth graders using the Stern Fixation Test. A brief history of the relationship of saccadic eye movements and reading is given and the theory behind the Stern Fixation Test is reviewed. The norms that were developed here agree closely with the norms that were found in the original study done by Stern in 1984.
