The Concentration project has now been concluded. You can download the raw events that were used to generate the ACT-R models, as well as the ACT-R models themselves, from this directory.
We are researchers at North Carolina State University. Help participate in this research project by spending approximately 10-15 minutes of your time on a study in which you will play the game of Concentration. This is a card game in which all of the cards are laid face down and during each turn, the player turns two cards face up. The object of the game is to turn over pairs of matching cards at each turn until all of the cards are matched. To begin, read the Consent Form below. If you agree, select the "Click here to participate in this study" button.
Playing our game will help us improve the design of games in many areas, including usability, interaction, and artificial intelligence. This game will collect information about your in-game actions anonymously. You must be 18 or older and be willing to allow us to gather data on your in-game actions to play this game.
If you have any questions about the study, please feel free to contact the principal investigator, Titus Barik. Titus can also be reached using Google Talk at the same address.
