Cognitive Psychology Decision-Making Experiment(~ 50 minutes) - $6.00 +0.50 bonus Confirmed!
$36.36 / hour
00:09:57 / completion time
ProsApproved right away.
ConsSeemed fairly quick and I don't believe it was set up correctly. I told the requester to reach out to me if more work is necessary. The way it is set up now there is no way to earn a high bonus as they mentioned.
Adding this here in case I need to contact the requester at a later time:
"If you have questions or concerns about your participation or payment or want to request a summary of research findings, please contact the research manager, Kirstan Brodie, at email@example.com. For any other problems related to this study, you may also contact the faculty member supervising this work, Fiery Cushman, at firstname.lastname@example.org. For questions, concerns, suggestions, or complaints that have not been or cannot be addressed by the researcher, or to report research-related harm, please contact the Committee on the Use of Human Subjects in Research at Harvard University by phone at 617-496-2847 or by email at email@example.com."
15-20 minute research study(~ 18 minutes) - $1.81 +1.20 bonus
$8.21 / hour
00:22:00 / completion time
ProsApproved within an hour of submission; bonus paid within 24 hours
Cons- Chrome gave me a "Not Secure" message for the survey site. I reported that to Amazon & mentioned it in the feedback.
- Setup in the 1st section was slow and hard on my hands. There might be an easier way to do that; I decided not to experiment.
I used the feedback box at the end to discuss the setup issues, suggest ways to make the 1st part faster (and easier on people with small hands), explain why I missed all 3 MCs after the 1st part, and pass along the "Not Secure" problem. I did a lot of writing so this will probably be closer to the estimated time for people who don't do that.
The hit is already approved. There's supposed to be a bonus but I don't know what that will be (if it's paid; I never trust those).
Birdwatcher game(~ 20 minutes) - $1.00 +1.80 bonus Confirmed!
$13.83 / hour
00:12:09 / completion time
ProsPerformance based bonus of up to $6. Total amount disclosed at end of survey. 30 rounds of a "game". 1 page of 3 questions including demographics afterwards.
EDIT: I also had some trouble getting it to submit. Emailed the requester and heard back from them within 30 minutes. So, that experience was very positive and I'm marking the communication as Excellent here.
ConsSuper annoying because if you're even a little bit off on your guess, you get $0.00 for that round. You also have to balance time spent on observing the animation vs your hourly, so it's up to you on how hard you want to work for the bonus.
