Eye-tracking is gradually becoming an invaluable tool for research in the field of applied linguistics and language assessment to examine a person’s real-time cognitive processing efforts. This technology offers several advantages over traditional research methods for studying cognitive processes such as think-aloud protocols as it offers abundant moment-to-moment data without interfering the overt and covert processes involved in performing a task. In language assessment, apart from research in reading, eye-tracking technology is progressively being adopted to explore reading, writing, and listening assessment. This symposium brings together researchers who have incorporated this innovative technology to answer their fundamental research questions in computer-assisted listening assessments and writing development through automated feedback.
