Charlie Nagle, associate professor of Spanish, recently published an article in the journal Studies in Second Language Acquisition.
The article, “Doing L2 Speech Research Online: Why and How to Collect Online Ratings Data,” was published on June 28.
The goal of the study was to develop a method for recruiting listeners through Amazon Mechanical Turk, an online crowdsourcing platform. Recruiting listeners online can help researchers reach larger and more diverse listener groups.
