Salma Alruthaya

Salma Alruthaya’s project will use a mixed-method approach (eye movement/miscue analysis) to explore how less proficient readers utilise visual information over various types of text to construct meaning. Salma’s project aims to achieve sufficient understanding of how less proficient readers interact with today’s literacy texts that combines different elements. She hopes that her research will highlight implications for reading practice that takes into consideration the characteristics of texts and learners.
