Online written map task
In this collaborative project, we offer recommendations for creating a novel, customizeable map task. As proof of concept, we present a pilot study exemplifying our own map implementation, designed to elicit informal written communication in either English or Spanish. We describe the use of computational methods to measure task success, and we also provide a comparative analysis of the language elicited in both languages. This study was published in the December 2023 issue of Research Methods in Applied Linguistics.
