Costin, Yvonne; O'Brien, Michael P.; Slattery, Darina M. – International Journal of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, 2018
Entrepreneurs need to develop a range of skills to be successful, including skills in decision making, risk management, problem solving, communication, and teamwork. Games and simulations are increasingly being used in both academia and business to encourage such skills development. This paper describes a business simulation module whereby…

Slattery, Timothy J.; Staub, Adrian; Rayner, Keith – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance, 2012
An important question in research on eye movements in reading is whether word frequency and word predictability have additive or interactive effects on fixation durations. A fair number of studies have reported only additive effects of the frequency and predictability of a target word on reading times on that word, failing to show significant…

Slattery, Timothy J.; Angele, Bernhard; Rayner, Keith – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance, 2011
In the boundary change paradigm (Rayner, 1975), when a reader's eyes cross an invisible boundary location, a preview word is replaced by a target word. Readers are generally unaware of such changes due to saccadic suppression. However, some readers detect changes on a few trials and a small percentage of them detect many changes. Two experiments…

Mallavarapu, Aditi; Lyons, Leilah; Shelley, Tia; Minor, Emily; Slattery, Brian; Zellner, Moria – Journal of Educational Data Mining, 2015
Interactive learning environments can provide learners with opportunities to explore rich, real-world problem spaces, but the nature of these problem spaces can make assessing learner progress difficult. Such assessment can be useful for providing formative and summative feedback to the learners, to educators, and to the designers of the…

Rayner, Keith; Slattery, Timothy J.; Drieghe, Denis; Liversedge, Simon P. – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance, 2011
Eye movements were monitored as subjects read sentences containing high- or low-predictable target words. The extent to which target words were predictable from prior context was varied: Half of the target words were predictable, and the other half were unpredictable. In addition, the length of the target word varied: The target words were short…

Rayner, Keith; Pollatsek, Alexander; Drieghe, Denis; Slattery, Timothy J.; Reichle, Erik D. – Journal of Experimental Psychology: General, 2007
R. Kliegl, A. Nuthmann, and R. Engbert reported an impressive set of data analyses dealing with the influence of the prior, present, and next word on the duration of the current eye fixation during reading. They argued that outcomes of their regression analyses indicate that lexical processing is distributed across a number of words during…
