Discussion
Topic
T
he phrase
t
ext comprehension
is probab
ly a little ambiguous. When I read the title I
think of understanding a body
of
language in print like a textbook. Do you share my
understanding or does it mean something entirely different
for
you?
Well l
et’s see how
our
discussion goes.
Text messaging
i
s an interesting phenomenon. In
one sense you
are
limited in the number of characters that can be sent in a
single text
message
, so many have developed different conventions and shortcuts
(e.g., emojis,
abbreviations, etc)
to convey more information in a t
ext (though I have started to notice
that with most people having unlimited texting that they will just send multiple texts that
individually have nowhere near the character limit).
However, sometime
s
“comprehension” of such messages is affected.
Y
our
cha
pter activity
is to create an experi
ment (
you
DO NOT
actually need to conduct
the experiment
, but can to really impress me
) that tests some aspect of
text
comprehension
using
text
messag
ing
.
Please do not propose a replication of a previous
study.
The
parameters
for your experiment
are wide open
(
except for the variable of
Age

do
NOT use AGE as a variable
)
.
The best experiments (as determined by me)
will earn 2x the credit normally earned. That is, there may be extra credit available
beyond a single student. So be creative, precise
,
and
clear
regarding your experiment and
ensure your submission is
well written.
