Yale Survey(~ 15 minutes) - $2.25
$40.70 / hour
00:03:19 / completion time
ProsEstimated time of completion for this is 15 minutes, which would put the requester's estimated hourly around $9/hr, which is above federal US minimum wage. It's pretty hard to take a full 15 minutes on this, though.
ConsAsked me my kid's age at the end with no way to say "I don't have a kid" and there was also no apparent screener, though I did make a comment at the end stating as such when asked for feedback, so YOLO.
Survey Opinion(~ 7 minutes) - $1.10
$7.75 / hour
00:08:31 / completion time
ConsHorribly underpaid. After the bubbles, this had multiple (4-5?) sections of required writing with timed pages, with minimum 1 minute each and a character minimum. This was on economic/political/environmental topics, not just fluff writing. Very annoying, very underpaid.
Yale Survey(~ 2 minutes) - $0.25
$14.52 / hour
00:01:02 / completion time
ProsIdentify who helps a person with their broken object
ConsEvery reading section was timed, which ruined the potentially great hourly for this survey
Light writing for explaining what task you did seconds ago
Requires worker ID in the middle of the reading section, which is awkward
