Parsing Eyetracking Fixation Durations

Child eye tracking with fixation duration information implied

Systematic variability in the quality of eyetracking data, including parsing eyetracking fixation durations, can affect the results of experiments in lots of important ways – see here, here and here.

To get round this problem I published a paper in which we developed new algorithms for parsing fixation durations. These algorithms can be downloaded here.

Using these is pretty tricky, though – as the settings are very dependent on which exact eyetracker you’re using. Feel free to email me if you’ve got any questions or reach out through my contact page.
