MIND MAP FOR ACADEMIC WRITING: EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN

EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN

The design of the experiment has been held on 30 students of agriculture department at International University of Business Agriculture and Technology on their course ENG 101- Basic English Composition. The research timeline was in between on January 2011 to April 2011.

Design was separated into two parts.

I. Write an essay on “Uses of ICT in agriculture sector” (Without Knowledge of Mindmap)

II. Write an essay on “Uses of ICT in agriculture sector” (With Knowledge of Mindmap)

First of all, lecturer discussed about importance of ICT in various sectors which is appropriate for this experiment using traditional teaching method with simple PowerPoint presentation. At that moment, students had no idea about any mapping techniques. After the lesson, teacher asked the students to make a presentation of uses of ICT tools in agricultural sector. When their writing is completed then teacher introduced different types of mapping techniques specially paper based mindmap. A framework of this experimental design is given below

Representative APR 391%

Let's say you want to borrow $100 for two week. Lender can charge you $15 for borrowing $100 for two weeks. You will need to return $115 to the lender at the end of 2 weeks. The cost of the $100 loan is a $15 finance charge and an annual percentage rate of 391 percent. If you decide to roll over the loan for another two weeks, lender can charge you another $15. If you roll-over the loan three times, the finance charge would climb to $60 to borrow the $100.

Implications of Non-payment: Some lenders in our network may automatically roll over your existing loan for another two weeks if you don't pay back the loan on time. Fees for renewing the loan range from lender to lender. Most of the time these fees equal the fees you paid to get the initial payday loan. We ask lenders in our network to follow legal and ethical collection practices set by industry associations and government agencies. Non-payment of a payday loan might negatively effect your credit history.
