I need everybody's help!

Postby Munboy » Tue Apr 13, 2010 5:32 pm

Hey everybody, I could really use your help with a research project for my linguistics class!

If you could take 5 minutes to go to this page...

http://munboy.webs.com/

...and follow the instructions, I'd really appreciate it! All you have to do is listen to a short (about 14 seconds) audio file and then take a short (7 questions) survey! You're done and you can walk away feeling proud that you helped out a poor college study with his research paper. If you're feeling particularly helpful, you can tell your friends and family too! I'm trying to get as much info from the largest demographic as possible. Thanks a lot!!

Thanks for helping out guys. You're awesome! ;-D

I'm pretty frantic about it. I have two weeks to collect the data before the presentation is due. Then I have the paper due a week after that. I kind of got a late start on it because of uncontrollable circumstances, but I'm hoping to get enough data for it to be useful.

For some reason the tracks won't load for me. Surveys work fine but the tracks don't load. I'll try again tomorrow and see if anything has changed.

Most of it went right over my head so I'm guessing she is smart and I'm not smart enough to know if she is BS'ing me. Survey done to the best of my ability.

Glad to help out, wish there was a neither agree or disagree option aka neutral.

I briefly considered Neutral but honestly, what data would I get from that, you know?

Portisfan, did you get it to work?


Thanks again everybody!

I would say accurate data? I mean its hard to tell from a voice recording whether a person seems intelligent...so I had to agree because I mean I can't disagree since she is saying things that are seemingly intelligent (at least over my head) but that doesn't nessecarly mean she knows what she is saying...she could just be reading off a cue card.

just my 2 cents.

That's exactly the point of this exercise. I've purposely left out information that would make what I'm trying to do here more clear because I don't want people going into the survey with pre-thoughts. I want immediate responses, not thought about responses. Neutral is the same as saying "I don't care" and that isn't helpful to me. Either you're influenced or not. You know what I mean?

At any rate, thanks for helping out despite your misgivings of the structure of the survey. ;-D
