Participation may show you an improvement if you did write them down or confirm the srs as not useful. Either way data is useful.

Re: Study on Language Improvement with Native Materials

I would need to be guided by peoples preference for control or test, because for example some may only have access to courses and no native media. Gender is largely irrelevant to me and i haven't decided if i will bother to ask. I don't have a problem with people joining later or dropping out early,...
