Concurrent Data Elicitation Procedures, Processes, and the Early Stages of L2 Learning: A Critical Overview
Leow, Ronald P.; Grey, Sarah; Marijuan, Silvia; Moorman, Colleen
Second Language Research, v30 n2 p111-127 Apr 2014
Given the current methodological interest in eliciting direct data on the cognitive processes L2 learners employ as they interact with L2 data during the early stages of the learning process, this article takes a critical and comparative look at three concurrent data elicitation procedures currently employed in the SLA literature: Think aloud (TA) protocols, eye-tracking (ET), and reaction time (RT). The section on each data elicitation procedure begins with a brief historical and descriptive account of its usage and application in the SLA literature to address cognitive processes as they occur during the early stages of the L2 learning process, followed by its strengths and some methodological issues that should be considered. Suggestions are provided for their usage in future studies investigating concurrent cognitive processes in L2 learning at these early stages of the L2 learning process.
