      Although your presentation focused on a topic that was interesting to learn about. I especially was interesting in seeing what findings you found that were from hunter students. I did think that your presentation gave alot of information, but the information could have been more specific. I didnt really understand all your slides or the numbers u mentioned. Your sections were also a bit overlapped. Some results where in the methods section.

    • Susan Lam-Loi December 9, 2010 at 12:40 am #

      Your presentation included a really interesting topic, but I was sort of confused about how you guys really tested level of awareness. I think it would be better if the operational definition was included. It would also help if you guys were more specific in the method that you guys utilized because I could not visualize how the experiment was actually conducted.

    To Invade or to Respect Personal Space

    • Maria Gonzalez December 8, 2010 at 6:46 pm #

      Your presentation was very well organized and the pictures were a good visual aid to better picture and understand your study. Which will also helps if anyone ever want to replicate it. I think that if you added a better description of how others invaded the confederate’s privacy and how it was measured, then it will be even easier to replicate. It was an original topic and I can tell you guys had a great time doing it and collecting the data. Great job!

    • Delfino Balbuena December 8, 2010 at 9:47 pm #

      Your presentation was very well organized. Everything was very understandable and the addition of pictures helped better visualized the experiment. The only thing i would change would adding your names to the slide, of your perspective question. I understand that each covered a different topic, but i felt as if adding the name individualized you as a group. Other than that, it was a great job.

    • Aleris Lorenzo December 8, 2010 at 11:49 pm #

      I really enjoyed your presentation. I liked that everyone spoke, the visuals and the neatness of everything. I dont have much advice other than the addition of sources, and mayb adding some extra description to the photo of what happened in the experiment. Other than those things i enjoyed your presentation.

    • Erika Repollo December 9, 2010 at 12:37 am #

      I thought this topic was very interesting and everyone can most definitely relate to it. I like that all the group members spoke on the voicethread and everyone spoke in a very clear manner. The slides were very well organized and easy to read, with all the necessary information.

    • Susan Lam-Loi December 9, 2010 at 12:51 am #

      I liked your presentation because it was clear and very well organized. I liked that each member were able to take turns to speak in the voicethread because it adds more variety to the overall presentation (instead of just listening to only one voice throughout). It would have been great if you guys put more graphics in the slides and included an actual video to see people’s reaction in the train especially when using the garlic knots! (very creative idea by the way).

    • Stephanie Reyes December 9, 2010 at 5:06 am #

      I was really impressed by the amount of information that you were able to put in your power point without making it too overbearing. I was interested in your study because I have an issue with people trying to read my books with me while on on the train. I find it really uncomfortable. It was interesting that if someone dressed provocatively they were bothered less. I would have liked to see a video of your experiment.

    • Maria Gonzalez December 8, 2010 at 7:02 pm #

      Next time don’t forget to add references! That is all I have to say for this group.
      Also we could have made the presentation longer and more detailed.

    • Delfino Balbuena December 8, 2010 at 9:49 pm #

      Im little disappointed at the fact that we missed our references. Our researched could have been substantial with the citation of different works. Maybe the quality of our video could have also been better. As whole, we did very good.

    • Aleris Lorenzo December 8, 2010 at 11:58 pm #

      I liked the creativity of the topic your group chose, it was interesting and fun to watch. I was a little confused with the individual questions being studied, and so my advice would be to make those questions a bit simpler, or clearer. I would also cut the video to be a little shorter. But i loved the presentation and overall was very good.

    • Erika Repollo December 9, 2010 at 12:42 am #

      I think the topic like the others was very interesting. I’m curious to know how the signs looked so maybe they could’ve been added to the slides, but other than that everything was fine. All the necessary information was placed in the slides, which is great.

    • Susan Lam-Loi December 9, 2010 at 1:18 am #

      I absolutely loved your experiment, a very creative idea. I liked that you guys included a video with the addition of musical tunes. This really caught my attention. However, I wish there was a closer visual so that we can actually see people’s facial reactions because the video was too far to be able to see whether or not a participant stepped on the sign or walked around it. I also thought that the video should have been shortened into several clips, maybe. Overall, you guys have a clear and well organized presentation. Good Job.

    • Orli Rosenthal December 9, 2010 at 4:15 am #

      I loved your presentation!
      I thought it was great, the topic was fun and interesting, and it was very clear you guys had a good time collecting data and I think it made all the difference between just another presentation to a really great presentation.
      everything about the work was easy to follow and understand, the concepts were well explained and the way data were collected and interpreted was clear as well. the video showed us, again, what a great tool a visual aid is.

    • Stephanie Reyes December 9, 2010 at 5:09 am #

      I really thought that our video was too long also. I cannot believe that we failed to add the references. We were trying to include everything. We could have worded our individual questions to avoid confusion. We had a great time doing the experiment and I hope it translated into our presentation.

    Variables Affecting Altruistic Behavior:

    • Maria Gonzalez December 8, 2010 at 6:56 pm #

      Good presentation and description of the procedure. The slides are clear and easy to read although I think you should have separated each of the group member’s variables into a different slide so the audience knows what results is for what question and conclusion. Even though the video didn’t work the pictures added to the presentation helped to keep the audience interested and engaged. It was a nice touch!

    • Delfino Balbuena December 8, 2010 at 9:55 pm #

      Presentation was great, everything was understandable and the data was very clear. The experiment itself seemed like a lot of fun which makes it more likely to be replicated, that’s always a plus. The one flaw, was that all the results were placed together. It would’ve been more beneficial if the results were separated, this way each question can be explained more thoroughly. The lack of a video did not hinder the presentation, but i would’ve love to see it. The picture was very clear and i think that was great. Overall, it was a great.

    • Stephanie Reyes December 9, 2010 at 5:11 am #

      I loved your experiment. I really wanted to see the video though I could tell that it was going to be really funny. The results were hard to follow because i didn’t memorize every question beforehand and when the results were shown I felt I was bombarded with info. Other than that you guys did a great job and the presentation was enjoyable.

    • Orli Rosenthal December 9, 2010 at 5:16 am #

      I think you did a great job and it seems that you work well as a group.
      You did a good job explaining the way you set up the experiment even though the video did not work.
      Separate slides with the results for each seperate question would have been more easily understood by the audience. Other than that, well done!

    This is our Lab 4

    Caffeinated vs. Decaffeinated:

    • Maria Gonzalez December 8, 2010 at 5:09 pm #

      Critique on presentations:
      I think this is an excellent topic to study since the coffee industry is booming and we as college students drink a lot of it. Therefore is relevant to all of us. It is really interesting to find out if and what types of effects coffee causes on individuals. A question I have from this study is about both of your independent variables. According to your questions one of the variables is females and the other one is males. However those are not variables, the variable is gender, in which case you both have the same variable, while they were suppose to be different. Another question is, how much time did you wait to measure the effects of caffeine on the participants who received the treatment? Because caffeine takes up to 30 minutes to take effect, so if you did not wait long enough for the caffeine to take effect one can argue that the experiment is weak or even invalid. Make sure you mention that in the paper and presentation so that nobody can argue that. Other than that it was a great topic to study and the development of the experiment itself is great.

    • Delfino Balbuena December 8, 2010 at 10:07 pm #

      I felt the presentation was a bit short. It also lacked some variables, such as the independent and dependent variables. I also noticed that there was one slide showing the results, but to whose study? It would’ve also been beneficial if you guys stated your respective null hypothesis, since in your conclusion it was mentioned that the null hypothesis was rejected. Although the slide presentation was good, the fact that experimenters were not present. made it impossible to ask questions.

    • Erika Repollo December 9, 2010 at 12:32 am #

      The study conducted seemed was great, however, in what aspect were the level of awareness measured? I think that the slides were a bit short, not that it’s a bad thing since it should be “short and sweet” but maybe a bit more detail could’ve been added to the slides since the topic was pretty interesting.

    • Orli Rosenthal December 9, 2010 at 4:08 am #

      Your presentation was overall good. The idea is great, as it affects so many of us as coffee consumers.
      There were a couple of things I wasn’t sure about. First of all, what exactly you meant by “awareness”,did you mean the person was alert and awake? and then, how was awareness measured?
      The other thing is that you weren’t clear about what were the independent variables. but as I said before, overall good job, the slides were clear and easy to follow.

    • Stephanie Reyes December 9, 2010 at 5:15 am #

      The presentation topic was of interest to me since I am a college student and practically have to live on coffee because of papers and finals. I recall in your presentation that the two variables were male and female. Those are categories under the heading of gender. The presentation was short and I wanted to hear more details. Did the coffee have time to take affect? What kind of coffee?

  6. Yan (Amy) Huang December 8, 2010 at 5:49 pm #

    Obedience Group
    Your presentation was great. I loved the video that you guys made. I think it would’ve help the audience understand your overall findings of the study if you guys made a slide with overall conclusions like “Obedience toward signs was affected by…(but not by)…)”. Overall, I think you guys did a great job. The slides were clear and easy to read.

    Altruism Group
    (I’m writing this from memory because I can’t re-watch your voicethread)
    I liked how each of you separated your individual questions instead of combining them into one single question. I would’ve liked to see each member’s hypothesis/conclusion on separate slides, rather than combining every person’s chi-square analysis on the same slide. It would remind the reader of what was the question of each individual and their results/findings. Too bad the video did not work, but good job explaining what happened during the study even without the video.

    Attire and Survey Group
    I liked the layout of your powerpoint slides. It was eye-catching. What I would’ve liked to see on your slide was a sample of the survey that the participants were given. That would’ve help the audience understand exactly what they were asked to answer. It would’ve also been nice to have some visual aids for the attires worn by the researcher during the study.

    Coffee Group
    Your presentation was short and easy to read. What I’m not seeing are the individual independent variables of the study. Did one of you manipulate gender, and the other manipulated decaf vs. caffeinated? Also, it might be helpful to provide an operational definition for “awareness” in relation to you study.

    Obedience Group

    Overall I think you guys did a great job. The video was an excellent addition to your presentation, it really showed your experiment in action. The slides were short, simple and straight to the point. I do think however it wold have been easier if you would have made a slide that had your overall conclusions for each member of the group. Also it would have been helpful if you could have added references to back up your study. But still great job guys.

    Altruism Group

    I think you guys did a great job explaining your experiment even though the video did not work. It really empathizes the point the professor has been making all semester long, and that’s always have a back up plan and I think you guys did a good job reenacting the experiment in class (you guys aren’t bad actors). I liked how you guys added a lot of pictures in your slides, it really made the presentation stand out. The slides were informative and really got your point across. But I do think you guys should have made separate slides for each group member’s variables, question, and conclusion, it would have made each question stand out and not have all the questions bunched in together. Great job none the less.

    Attire and Survey Group

    Every interesting topic and original. I think you guys did a great job explaining your experiment. I do think however some of the slides were a little clustered and good have been made simpler by cutting some stuff out and making it short and easy to read. Also it would have been nice to see the actually survey you guys used so the class could have gotten an idea of the questions asked. It also would have been nice to see some kind of visual aid so the class could see what your definition of causal and provocative clothing. But the think every all your presentation was very clear and informative. Great job.

      Coffee Group

      I think your presentation was simple, short, and straight to the point. It would have been nice to get a sampling of the survey so we could have gotten an idea of the questions asked. Also what was your definition of awareness, it was not very clear. Also what exactly were in the independent variables? It seems there was some kind of confusion because you said the independent variables were females and males but being that your testing gender, thats only one variable and the category of that variable is females and males. Some visual adds would also have been helpful in making the presentation a little more interesting. Overall nice job.

  8. Susan Lam-Loi December 9, 2010 at 1:29 am #

    For the attire and survey group, I thought that you guys had a really nice presentation. I like the layout because it looks way better than just a plain white& black, “same old powerpoint look”. You guys were very concise, but I would like it if you guys included a video so that you guys can display the interaction the confederate experienced with the participants. That would have been interesting. I was also curious to see more pictures and assess the confederate’s overall attire: professional versus provocative. The presentation of the actual survey would have been useful too. Overall, good job!

    Obedience Group:
    The presentation of your study was very clear. It was easy to see how you tested for obedience in your video. The video was a good supplement and showed exactly from a researchers perspective what you observed in your study.

    Personal Space Group:
    The presentation of your study was very thorough, and the way each person addressed a different form of crowding was interesting. The way you coded each action was still very precise and efficient. The way you presented all the data, procedures, and results made the study easy to follow.

    Attire Group:
    The presentation of your study was on point and elaborated on the study pretty well. The only addition I would add are questions on your survey. It would help elaborate on how you correlated your values for your dependent variable and measures.

    Caffeine and Awareness Group:
    The presentation of your study was very straightforward on what your study was interested in, the only problem being how you measured how people reported their feelings of being aware. It would help if you included questions from your survey as well as how you coded the data you gathered.

  10. Orli Rosenthal December 9, 2010 at 5:23 am #

    For the Attire and Survey group:
    I liked the question you chose to investigate. I thought it was interesting and fun.
    A visual of the attires would have been helpful and also, I was curious to see the survey and the questions you asked.
    The presentation itself and the slides were easily read and understood.

  11. Victoria Maksimets December 9, 2010 at 5:46 am #

    I looked at all the voice threads and I think overall everyone did a great job! I mean look where we all started not knowing anything about research methods, but look at us now we have improved all so much. I am very upset I did not make it to the last class, because of a family problem. Overall, I am really happy. Hope to see some of you in my future classes. Also I am trying to get a permission for Dr. Striano’s next course we will see how that goes. All of you were a joy, this class was a pleasure to be in. I would just like to say that this class opened my eyes at real world of research. Thank you Dr. Striano and classmates !!!

  12. NaToya Bromfield December 9, 2010 at 9:39 pm #

    Altruism Group
    Your experiment was very interesting. I thought the questions you asked were clear and I was able to understand your procedure. I wished that your video would have worked during class because the experiment sounded very interesting and I would have liked to have seen how the participants reacted. Also it would of helped if there could have been more references. Other than that great job.

    Attire and Survey group
    Your experiment was very interesting also. When everyone was explaining it I can tell that you guys enjoyed it. I wished there could have been photos of what you guys picked as the provocative outfits and the casual attire. It would have been great to see an example of the survey. Other than that I thought everyone did a great job and really knew what they were talking about.

    Coffee Group
    Your topic was interesting but it would have been better if you guys were there to present it.
    The study was simple and concise which is always great. It would have been better if the operational definition was included. Also it would have been great to see an example of your survey. Overall it was a great experiment and I enjoyed it.

    Personal space Group
    Your experiment was very interesting and the PowerPoint was done very well. The way everyone explained their questions was very clear and it was straight to the point. My only advice would be to expand on the operational treatment. Overall it was a successful experiment.

    Caffeinated vs. Decaffeinated
    Your presentation topic was very interesting, because I cant go a day without my cup of caffeinated coffee. However i would like to see more details on the slides like the p value and i was a bet confused with information. Besides that everything was good.
    To Invade or to Respect Personal Space
    I got to say that this is one of my favorite topics because this happens to me a lot on the train. What I like about this presentation is that it had a lot of aspects and different questions to the topic. The funniest would be the odor. I would probably like to see a video next time to see people’s reactions.
    Obedience of signs
    This too was other topic that I enjoyed. The presentation was well organized and the group spoke when it was their go to present. One thing I would have done if I did this topic was the color of the paper. During the video I realized that people kept on going and stand on the paper when it was a green paper. And when the paper was red some stopped and did not stand on the paper. As a drive, green means go and red means stop. That is something we learn as kids. So choosing the colors red and green played a role on people stopping and going.
    Variables Affecting Altruistic Behavior
    This presentation was awesome and I truly enjoyed the pictures. I loved that you pretended to fall to see people’s reaction, wish the video work. The presentation was good however the slides should have been different for everyone’s variable and question. But i enjoyed very much.

    Remember keep on SMILING =)

  14. Jacqueline Gomez December 10, 2010 at 5:36 am #

    I had a chance to look over all of the voicethreads that my classmates completed. Overall, good job, especially obedience of signs group; it was clear for me to understand when reading, I didn’t come across anything that was too confusing. Also, to invade or to respect personal space group, this topic in my opinion is interesting and a bit funny; because me personally hates it when someone’s too close. I enjoyed this class very much and learned a lot. Dr. Striano, was a joy and very funny. I hope all goes well with other research she is trying to pursue. GREAT JOB EVERYONE!

  15. Nikea Clark December 13, 2010 at 10:28 am #

    Coffee group;
    The presentation was a good topic of choice, as we all know undergrad is not easy, and a lot of students even professors tend to coffee for that boost of energy. I would have like to have know what kind of coffee was used in the study as well as the strength. Great job!

    Invade of personal Space group:
    Your presentation was well organized. i think the topic was great since we all study in the city, and know how it feels to be invaded by strangers everyday. each group member variable was different but still had relevance to the main topic which was great. The pictures when the researcher was on the train was a great example to show the class in case anyone wanted to replicate the study.
    Great Job!

    Obedience of signs:
    I think this topic was excellent. to see the actual video from the study was fantastic. the time and energy you guys put in the study was a plus. The use of the background music was great! The topic was of good interest. as we all know signs are very important in society. its a form of obedience that authorities used to help keep society safe and clean. unfortunately we are not aware that other individuals may pressure us unconsciously to disobey signs, and rules! great presentation!

    Altruism Group:
    Your experiment was very interesting. the questions you asked were great and I was able to understand your procedure. although the video would have probably showed and explained the topic more details, I would have liked to have seen how the participants reacted.great job.
