Reading Research Symposium

This Saturday, I will be presenting my research at the Reading Research Symposium at Cardinal Stritch University. I am very excited and grateful for this opportunity to share my research and findings with other professionals in the field. Conducting research and writing a dissertation is one thing, but being able to collaborate, get feedback, network, and gain a new perspective really makes all this hard work feel worth while.

The following is my poster presentation for this session:

I will be discussing my investigation of online reading comprehension via the ORCA assessment tool created by the University of Connecticut.

Below is my favorite (and most informative and interesting) flow chart created from the results of this research. I think it is very telling about the kinds of navigational habits that are found to be most successful for online reading comprehension:

And here are a few more flow charts and figures that help to visually explain the results of this research. Fascinating stuff, right? If you have any questions about my research, I’d be happy to answer them – please ask away in the comments below.

    Kristen,
    Congratulations on earning your doctorate! Your research sounds interesting and I love the visuals you provided. I presented at two poster symposiums as an undergrad and I agree with all the tips you provided in the other post! Especially about the comfy shoes. 😉

      Hi Katie,
      Thank you so much! Glad to meet a fellow presenter – it’s scary, and I wish I would have had some of these tips going into it! So true on the comfy shoes. Have a great day!
