Downloadable Software

Action Simulator is the spreadsheet production system. Described in Monk & Curry, 1994. ActionSim package is a Macintosh folder containing instructions and all the files you need to run the spreadsheet using Excel for the Macintosh (you must of course have Microsoft Excel).

The file is a binhexed self expanding archive. When you have the un-binhexed self expanding archive on your desk top, double clicking will cause it to expand into a folder.

Please let me know of any improvements you make and any interesting uses you find for it.

Windows version coming soon!

Clark's levels of joint action

This spreadsheet ellaborates Clark's model of langauge use to a three person conversation where one person is a periperal participant (see Monk, A.F. (2003) Common ground in electronically mediated communication: Clark's theory of language use, in Carroll, J.M. "HCI models, theories and frameworks: towards a multidisciplinary science", San Francisco: Morgan Kaufmann Publishers, pp. 265-289.)

Downloadable Teaching Stuff

My statistics notes are based on the introductory sections of my book
Monk, A.F. Exploring statistics with MINITAB: a workbook for the behavioural sciences, Wiley, 1991, pp 247.
which is now out of press.

The notes take a pragmatic approach to statistics and avoid the use of fomulea. I could have called it "Learning statistics without sigma". The assumption is that they are also learning to carry out the calculations with a computer, not with a calculator as so many texts seem to assume.

The contents include:

Guidelines for the use of multiple choice and computer presented tests for university assessment.
