Example text

The random word order ensures that no word can be guessed from the context; each word must be seen to be read. The absence of any meaning has the advantage that children are often unaware of their errors of omission and transposition of words. The text is printed in a small typeface, closely spaced, in order to increase the visual difficulty. It is read aloud as quickly as possible for one minute. The score is the number of words correctly read. The task of reading randomly ordered common words is quite bizarre, but it is simple and fun for children to undertake and it has turned out to provide a sensitive measure of the visual skills involved in reading.

Is the assessment of overlays reliable in this way? Further studies [13], attempted to answer this question. A year group of children in a middle school were examined. First the children were tested as a group and were asked about symptoms of distortion and discomfort when viewing text. All the children were then examined individually by different examiners using slightly different methods in two sessions no more than 3 days apart. One method resembled that described in Chapter 10 and the other method involved the initial comparison of each overlay with the white page.
