Eyetracking experiment: reading time

Download for Experiment Builder 2.1.512
Simple reading time experiment template for SR Research EyeLink 1000. Participants view a fixation point in the middle of the first letter of the sentence. After fixating the point, the whole sentence appears, as well as a second fixation point. When participants fixate a second fixation point or read the sentence for longer than 20000 ms, the sentence disappears. Some sentences are followed by a comprehension question with two answer alternatives.

Online experiment: self-paced reading

Download for PCIbex 1.9, Demonstration link
This is an experiment template in which participants read sentences in segments and occasionally have to answer a comprehension question. The experiment consists of the following parts: Obligatory ethics agreement, form for inputting participant information, instructions, exercise, main experiment sequence, end screen and experiment explanation.

Online questionnaire experiment: acceptability judgments

Download for PCIbex 1.9, Demonstration link
Download for OnExp 1.2, Demonstration link
An online questionnaire experiment. Participants read a sentence and are simultaneously presented with a 7-point Likert scale. They must to rate how natural the sentence sounds to them before proceeding to the next sentence.

Online questionnaire experiment: forced choice

Download for OnExp 1.2, Demonstration link
An online questionnaire experiment. Participants read a sentence and are simultaneously presented with a forced-choice question with two answer alternatives. They must choose one of the answers in order to proceed to the next sentence.

In Lab experiment: self paced reading

Download for E-Prime 3.0.3.60
A self-paced reading experiment template with a moving window paradigm. Participants view a fixation point in the middle of the screen. Then the sentence appears with the letters replaced by underscores. Participants press the space bar in order to reveal a sentence segment. After having pressed the space bar again, the segment disappears and the subsequent segment appears. This continues until the last segment in the sentence. Some sentences are followed by a comprehension question with two answer alternatives. This experiment contains a script by Jan Anderssen (jan[at]linguist.umass.edu).

Typesetting

I've spent lots of time trying to get my thesis to look right and recreating some more and less famous figures. Below are some figures that I had to make from scratch and would have appreciated if someone had already provided the code. If you think you can make them better, please tell me so I can improve. You will need XeLaTeX for this.
