For more than a century, different types of technology have been used to investigate the cognitive and perceptual processes subsumed in the act of reading. This paper reviews the methods and the instruments used in computer-based studies of reading processes. Issues related to the use of computers for data collection and for measurement are examined. Methods of presenting texts are contrasted. A number of trends emerged from the results of the review, and these patterns reflect changes in both computer use and theoretical models of reading. Improvements in computer applications produced differences in the arrangement of text and in the foci of analyses. An increased emphasis on comprehension and on reader response in models of reading affected exposure duration control, exposure duration length, and obtrusiveness of measurement.
