Some more embodiment analyses

Here are some more (explorative) analyses from the embodiment data used the Embodiment in character-based video games.

I collected also workload data using raw Nasa TLX when gathering data for EFA and CFA, but then I did not use workload data in analyses. My assumption was that workload would correlate with the embodiment, but did not look at this.

Data and R code of two papers

Below is link to the data file and R code used to in the final models in “Models for Story Consistency and Interestingness in Single-Player RPGs” (in Mindtrek 2013) and “Modeling Player-character engagement in Single-player character-driven games” (in ACE 2013 Netherlands).  The models q4 and q7 are used in the first paper and and the model q8 is used in the second paper.

Model–data comparison

I wrote some code to check my ordinal / clmm models against the data (and to learn to use ggplo2).

The function pred() is from clmm tutorial to calculate predictions based on the model. The function plot.probabilities3() is for plotting prediction and distribution form the data.

Update: changed extreme subject visualization.  Area seemed not appropriate when average player is not always inside the area.
