The semester is finally in full swing and we’re back with some stats! In case you were wondering where the results of the test went that you took before starting out on SHRIMP – here they are, neatly cast into a beautiful chart!Based on the answers you gave in the test, we calculated a profile of scores.

In this week’s Talk Nerdy to Me, the grand finale, we have not one but two graphs to show! They both relate to analyzing how everyone has been annotating during the semester, and so they provide an interesting window into how we engage with the texts as we read them.
Hey y’all! In this week’s Talk Nerdy to Me we’re going to discuss something a bit different: the cards the fewest distinct readers. That is to say, they’re the cards where the fewest number of specific users have read them. Let’s dive into the data!
As we can clearly see, less than 25 of you have read each of these individual cards, and for some of them it’s less than 20! That’s not too many people.
Talk Nerdy to Me: A (not so) Shrimpy Christmas
Here at SHRIMP we hope everyone had a relaxing and fun Winter Break—we know we did! And we also know that at least a few of you got the best gift on Christmas: the gift of knowledge, for which some of you got the “Nerds on Christmas” badge. Accordingly, this week we wanted to check out how our vacation days affected reading habits.
This week in Talk Nerdy to Me we’re going to look at what cards have been the read the most this semester. This will give us a good idea of how reading habits change as the semester progresses.
