The purpose of this study is to evaluate, by means of ocular photography, the indices of the learning process. Since the mind is known by behavior of some kind, it would seem logical to assume a study of the characteristic behavior of the human eye would reveal some of the mental processes involved. If attention, retention, reason and reproduction are different phases of the learning process, it is likely that the analysis of ocular patterns would provide a valuable technique to evaluate such mental content. This study is an attempt to evaluate: 1. The relative time spent on respective symbols due to position. 2. The relative achievement of certain symbols due to position. 3. The relative excursion frequency in the vertical and horizontal plane. 4. Characteristic differences of the ocular patterns of subjects of high and low achievements.
