Notes on Eye-Tracking Data from a Novice Programmer

    Abstract

    This paper presents notes on issues related to analysing eyetracking data from a novice programmer progressing through an introductory course in Java programming. The data are used to make observations on evidence of development of code reading strategy, and these are related to models of program comprehension. Some suggestions for the timing of studies within
    the learning process and for useful visualisations and tools are included.
