Pilot study report v.1

Here: I will compose this many times before I send it to prof. 

let me list out the problems encountered so far
1. the Y-axis alignment is corrupted so there are dots outside the ROI. But they shall be count into the ROI.
2. Grouping of the test is problematic: the best grouping shall be a 2x2 matrix. Mine is a 2x1 matrix. 
3. Way of defining efficiency. I use the looseness of the dot as an indication for reading speed. Yes we do have time stamp of each dot. But these "looseness" can not faithfully explain if their reading is efficient. 
4. the way they scan through the passage. (they just move their eyes without really reading it!)

Some methods to improve such problems

Abstract
My pilot study focus on finding out if there are any evidence that mnemonic devices can help achieve better reading efficiency. Here we define better reading efficiency as "less regression", faster reading pace, and better retention (comprehension) after reading. We will have two groups of participants reading the passage, and measure the fixation and time stamps to see the total time used. I will also analyze the time used after passing the circled area (main verb)




Methods
 
The material is chosen from the novel "metro 2033", written by a Russian novelist. It's a crucial step to choose suitable materials. I am measuring the the reading efficiency by time stamp and fixation numbers. I figure out that I would need a  passage with suitable syntactic structure. To briefly explain my desired "pattern" on the passage, I would reinforce the elements we are looking for: the SVO structure. 

I must find a passage with many SVO structure, but it cannot be too complicated or with many dangling sentences. It shall not be too boring to read with, it's better with some scene or plot description to stimulate the reader to go on with a comfortable pace. 
But after the test I was told by the participants that the passage is very boring. This is beyond my expectation. I thought I chose the right material. So how am I going to change things like this happen again? I was advised by zuzana that I shall tell the participants we will ask them the content of the passage. So they will read with more carefully.

life changing letter for job recursion

I left NTVS at early Sep. I found a part-time job in TMU library at early October.
This truly changed my life since I can have better life, study and work balance. 
This improves my health, research progress, and relationship with family and Sunya. 
My living condition is better now, but that doesn't mean I am not getting exploited by the job and my tutoring job.

The world is still fall of injustice. I am still living poorly.

健保局的意見信箱根本就壞掉了

I can't even contact them! But I need to mail them something!

你好,我在日前收到通知。電話詢問健保局是得到回應要等健保局把加保後的更新資料給台北醫學大學圖書館。
我想知道目前健保局更新我加保資料的進度如何了呢?因為北醫還沒有給我新的欠保資料,所以我也無法跟新北高工去催討或給予補加保的資料,謝謝!另外,此意見信箱上傳附件的功能有問題,檔案並沒有超過2mb,而是只有72kb,也無法正常上傳。

dot map 702 got huge problem

其實從大約第四張開始就可以看得出來,整個開始往上偏斜
Slide 8 is empty of dot map, I delete it since the data is totally broken

So the range of usable data would be started from like slide 1~4, and slide 9
I can not yet get anything obvious from the  dot map. 
I am thinking to add up the dots by my human eyes. Yes, and then calculate the dots manually then input the result into google spreadsheet. That's the best procedure I can do now.
The only way that makes analysis possible.

SB 300 vs CB 400

The riders are talking happily.

It's still misty. 

With Sunya

Near the lake

石碇,千島湖

It's foggy that day
or you could call it air pollution from mainland China.
We will visit there some other time
