My type (1) questions on my design of the experiment

Hi, prof. Tsai

I got some problems for my experiment design. I am not sure if this belongs to t-test or something else.  
I am still learning statics from udacity https://www.udacity.com/course/statistics--st095 
I wish to be familiar with these methods

My questions can be classified into two types:  technical and methodological

Let me describe my technical problems first. 
There're four of them in total.
  1. ppt ratio
  2. How about the background color? (Mine is like grey mixed with a little bit of yellow)
  3. shall I remove the bookmark and the status bar?
  4. And after all, is ROI the suitable tool to detect such a subtle process on syntax parsing / clause parsing? 

On Thursday you mentioned the way we use to make ROI map in powerpoint/ keynote
But I found that our monitor is wide-screen with different ratio (16:9 or 16:10)
If we export the ppt file to PDF, the background (and the foreground pics )would be in different ration.
We should decide the ratio of the ppt before we export it to PDF.
I suppose we shall fix it to 4:3 ? Even if ti's exported to PDF and display on a wide-screen monitor like iMac, it will remain the ration 4:3 instead of being stretched.

Since we need to do color indexing, the color of the background shall be taken into account.
(I just knew this on this Thursday. )
But I guess it's ok to assign the background a color number since What we're interested in are only the ROIs.
To make the background color not white is quite important, this will make the reader blink less or read better on the monitor.
So I think I would keep the background, is that ok, prof. Tsai? 

Finally for the ROIs:
I am looking for the parsing pattern change in the help of mnemonic devices in sentences. I suppose the readers will find that the main idea in each sentence lies after the verb, the so called "depiction part" of a sentence. These m-devices are there to help them figure this out. 
I assume they will speed up after a few pages of training. They will go directly to the red underline parts of the sentences, which are located at the rear part of sentences (after the main verbs).

If we put ROIs on the main verbs, can we detect their eye movement to the rear part of main verbs? 
What shall I do to do such detection? 
As for the additional elements: 
I am not sure if the bar at the bottom of the pic will effect the reader. Maybe I should remove it, or just let the reader know that there's an unimportant bar so they won't look at it at all. The pictures are captured from my cellphone (as an E-reader) so it has a bar there.  
I found you notice Zuzana's page number at the bottom right. So I think I might have the same issue. 

As for another type of methodologically problems:
I think I would wrote another letter since this one is long enough~

Sam 今天有自己做了一個句子,很好玩。






I met old friend who I not seen for a long time


I met an old friend whom I haven't seen for a long time






至於妹妹Amy,她現在寫的部份已經到了Book 3 L4~7 (舊制課本,但教材文法內容進度幾乎一樣)
這本書結束就到Book 5 L10-12
也就是說她已經寫了快要一半了,現在開始要爬坡了。難度會漸漸增加,我估計她到Book 4的中期會開始有比較多的困難。這是她現在學校的進度(國三上)

這樣的訓練很扎實。也是鷹架理論(Scaffolding theory)裡面,對於全貌或架構不熟悉的學習者,需要一個範本但也需要自己努力的練習情境。
