Ideas for using technology to design and carry out experiments online
This post provides the notes for a workshop I ran at the Otago Mathematics Association (OMA) conference about using technology to design and carry out experiments online.
Actually, at the moment this post only provides a PDF of the slides I used for the workshop – I will update this post with more detail later this year 🙂 Links and documents referred to in the slides are at the bottom of this page.
Note: Links to mathstatic.co.nz no longer work, instead please read Designing online experiments using Google forms + random redirect tool for more information about allocate.monster.
- A working demo of the random redirect tool in action for memory experiment – when you click this link, you will be sent to one of two versions of a Google form at random mathstatic.co.nz/auto/XHCNPYLP
- The original activity and notes on which the memory experiment is based
- My random redirect tool mathstatic.co.nz/auto
- Another post I did about online experiments using the random redirect tool (includes more about the movie music experiment): Designing online experiments using Google forms + random redirect tool
- Material I developed for experiments back in 2012 (more about the adaptation of Asch’s 1946 study about forming impressions in this material, and also articles which can be used as ideas for adapting experiments)
- Teacher experiment: An attempt to help students develop statistical insight through giving examples of questions to consider for the specific experiment design (not generic questions)
- Teacher experiment: The CVs used in the experiment – to use within a Google form, you would need to take a screenshot each of one and same as image files
- Teacher experiment: An example of the initial form designed for the experiment – you would copy this and then change the image only to insert the other version of the CV (please don’t request edit access)
- Some articles about rap lyrics: article 1 article 2
- Another post I did about using my experiment lab to explore game design New tool for statistics students – the experiment lab!
