This talk presents a preliminary analysis of the data from ReadLET, a project studying reading development in children. It is based on a new paradigm that our colleagues at CNR in Pisa are developing, based on finger tracking on a tablet as children read passages of text, aiming to evaluate children’s reading skills, how they change in development and what plays a role in the process.
