Undergraduate Honor's Thesis:

Cognitive Vs. Social Cues in Multimedia


Designed and executed a senior thesis research experiment involving the integration of cognition, technology, and learning theory over the course of three quarters, with the goal to improve multimedia for learning purposes. The project resulted in experience writing grant proposals, synthesizing and analyzing theoretical and research literature, managing subjects (scheduling, moderating, paying, maintaining their confidentiality); collecting, coding and quantitatively analyzing data (exposure to SPSS); and presenting findings during a colloquium.
