Semester Award for Cui Ding

We are pleased to announce that Cui Ding has won this year' semester award for her outstanding Master's thesis! She did her master's thesis project with Prof. Dr. Lena A. Jäger and Dr. Ethan Wilcox on Mouse Tracking for Reading (MoTR): A New Incremental Processing Paradigm. In this project, they present a method that aims to be cheap and easy but at the same time a better proxy for the gold-standard eye-tracking.  With MoTR, participants see very blurry text and hover their mouse over the text to bring that text into clarity. Thus, participants can read relatively naturally, including being able to skip words or regress, and researchers get reading location for each time point similar to that from eye-tracking.
