Abstract: The relationship between scrolling and comprehension has been studied a few times by comparing readers who read in an environment with scrolling to those who read in an environment without scrolling. However, the amount of scrolling done by subjects who had the option to scroll has not been linked to comprehension before. In this paper, we investigate the relationship between how often participants scroll and comprehension. We find that participants who have no preference between paper and digital reading tools do worse when they scroll, but there is no relationship between scrolling and comprehension for other students.
