We will do a few "issue spotter" exercises in class whenever relevant. These exercises consist of a critic of an experimental design and the results. Issue spotters will be distributed in class and you can work on them in groups. They will count towards "participation" grade.
You choose 4 CogLab experiments among the 5 CogLab experiments that we propose. These are short (5 to 15 min) experiments.
The CogLab procedure consists of running the experiment on a Mac or PC and saving the data in html or excel. After receiving the group data, do a statistical analysis and write a 2-3 page report. If you are a CogLab presenter, prepare a 10 min. talk. The summary consists of a 2-3 page word document that includes:
CogLab 2: Issue Spotter assignment 1 with answer key (PDF)
CogLab 3: Issue Spotter assignment 2 with answer key (PDF)
CogLab 3: Issue Spotter assignment 3: Prototypes (PDF)
Note: All research projects are done in groups of 1-3 students. All papers are written individually.
Oral presentations consist of class participation, 1 CogLab experiment and 3 talks.
