This we engaged in 3 different activities: Micro-Macro Tasks; Engineering Design of Requester Dashboard; Paper writing.

Micro-Macro tasks

I created two AMT micro-tasks and requested that 5 workers complete them and provide feedback.
The tasks were:

  • Categorize LiveJournal Posts into categories. The categories were shown at the top with a description. Workers were given a space to provide comments.
  • Survey on usage of Facebook Tagging

Findings: Workers provided feedback on the survey questions. Provided information on how to make the questions more clear. They also provided some feedback on how to make the category description clearer; and made comments on cases where some posts were not well covered by the given catories.
Take-Aways: I believe workers could be very useful to help requestors polish their tasks, and even their research (e.g., have better definition of categories). A small chat where workers are paid extra to give more feedback could be very useful for the requestor.

Research Engineering

Our team worked to design the requestor dashboard of the progress work.

Paper Writing

Our team actively wrote in the ShareLATEX and also participated in the weekly writing meetings!
