Abstract

A study was conducted to examine how social text signals in a digital text would evolve as students read the text and annotated it. The text signals result from aggregating the individual annotations to extract a group consensus about the most important parts of the overall text. Results indicate that consensus emerges quite quickly with the text signals stabilizing by about the 30th participant and that the signals generally do select the important parts of the text when compared to an expert’s annotations.
