I thought you did a great job with your presentation (especially since you were in a time crunch). Your visuals were very appropriate for accompanying the text and you had a good balance between both. I think your study (if you haven't already started it) will be very interesting because I think you had some really good hypotheses that will be interesting to learn about. If you're running the study, good luck with it. I think the findings could be very eye-opening and lead to advances in the CMC world.

Nikki, great job on your presentation. I know you were nervous, but you came across really clear, so congrats! Your project sounds really interesting. I was a little confused when you were talking about your methodology for your proposed study, because I didn't quite follow the layout of the study. But I think that what you are proposing is that you prime your subject with a certain "profile" of a person, and then they all have the same neutral conversation with a confederate, and you are going to see how the primings affect their suspicion level. There are certainly a lot of different variables you are looking at, but it sounds like you have a really clear idea about what you want to study, and I think that you will find some interesting results. Great job on your presentation, and good luck with the study!

Nikki - Great job on your presentation! I really enjoyed it. Your slides were fun, and the visuals you chose highlighted the topics you were discussing, but also made the presentation entertaining.
It is obvious that you have spent a lot of time thinking about this project. You explained your methodology and purpose very well, and I think you will have great success in running this experiment. Great job!

Nikki, good job on your presentation, I really enjoyed your slides. It seems like you have been working a lot on your research, and it will be interesting to see your findings once you conduct the experiment. Is it possible that people detect more lies when they are suspicious because they are guessing more that the other person is lying, therefore increasing their chances? Good luck with everything!

Hey Nikki,

I know you were nervous, and I know we both thought we'd never make it to Thursday's presentations but in retrospect, you did a wonderful job. PS. Your slides looked great! I think you just hit such a valuable point in your research that besides relying on non-verbal and verbal cues, we can't forget the factor of suspicion. I think any sort of research on this factor will be very valuable to deception detection rates online. Your proposed study seems wonderful but also make sure you limit your variables enough so that you can really attribute certain behaviors to x factors. You seem to have put a lot of thought into your work and this really was accentuated in your presenation. Best of luck with the paper and stay in touch. It's been a pleasure working with you this semester.

Liked your title. Cute graphics and clipart. You explained the premise of your experiment well. And the photographs of John/Jane Doe were nice, though I'm not so sure how the photo of that goofy kid at the end was relevant to your final slide... :-) I had one question for you. What did you mean by "pre-planned messages"? If the confederates are having a synchronous conversation with the experiment subject, how can the responses be pre-planned? Do you plan a response for every single possible conversation? Perhaps I misunderstood that part, but you might want to make sure that's clear in your paper. Overall, great presentation. No need to be so nervous beforehand!

I enjoyed your presentation. I thought your visuals were very appropriate and rather humorous! I know you’ve been going through the details of your study for a long time, and that was evident in your presentation. I though you did a great job of focusing on the important details and not getting caught up in less important details in certain areas. You’re looking at a number of variables, so I’m intrigued to see how your study goes and how your results turn out.
