FA 16 Project 20 Week 8


There were twenty subjects used for the game. The subjects were recruited in high school. They volunteered to participate in the games. Inclusion and exclusion criteria didn’t include their sex or their ethnicities. All subjects were assigned to these conditions. The only things that were included were their ages. The subject demographics were 10 males and 10 females to make the study even. Ethnicity, sex, etc. wasn’t important.

There were a few conditions that were created. Some Conditions included one with some students getting easier pictures to look at and remember and the rest of the students got the harder pictures and objects to look at and remember. I explained the things to the subjects by telling the students that they will have to look at a series of objects or pictures, remember them, and afterward, say them in their original order. Depending on the game variant that the students choose, the students may alternatively be asked to say what they remembered in reverse order. There is also a Time limit to answering the questions. The data was collected based on the points the students got on each round.
