Participate in an Online Research Study!

A researcher from the University of Washington in Seattle is soliciting participants for an online study beginning
June 18, 2010.To participate in the study you must be:

• A Japanese person between the ages of 18 – 65.

• A Japanese individual with ANY level (from beginner to advanced) of English-language proficiency. You must have taken the Test of English for International Communication (TOEIC) within the past six months and will be asked to submit your reading proficiency score.

• Comfortable with computers and the Internet.
If you choose to participate, you will read two short articles and answer some survey questions. Your input will help develop guidelines that improve English-language web sites for nonnative English speakers. Your participation will take about 20 minutes and at the end of the study you will have the chance to enter a drawing for some Amazon.com gift certificates.

To access the study, please enter the following URL into Internet Explorer (or the browser of your choice): https://catalysttools.washington.edu/webq/survey/sandybar/102698. Then follow the online instructions for completing the study.

Assessment Research
Our research team advances the field of educational measurement through innovative research in the following areas:

Developing Natural Language Processing Applications
Our researchers have significant experience in a branch of computer science and computational linguistics known as Natural Language Processing (NLP). This technology has many applications. In particular, we have used this research capability to develop automated scoring applications. One of these applications is the e-rater® automated scoring engine. Other automated scoring applications that we are developing include the c-rater™ engine, the m-rater engine and the SpeechRatersm service. For more information, see Automated Scoring and Natural Language Processing or download our Core Research Capabilities brochure (PDF).
