Health and Interpersonal Wellbeing: 2 HITs Study, $30 or $45 Total (Set #1)(~ 60 minutes) - $10.00
$19.31 / hour
00:31:04 / completion time
ProsLong timer and I suggest taking breaks to ease frustration. I also suggest grabbing a coffee and picking out something to do afterwards to clear your mind if you decide to partake in this rather extensive survey.
ConsAnother survey where the ten bucks just does not feel worth it. Hoping the second survey makes up for the frustration. First of all, it's RedCap and I hate that platform because it's awkward and slow. I mean tiny tiny tiny radio buttons!
This survey may have had more questions than I have ever done in my whole time turking especially with certain sections. Timing will vary depending on how you answer. Questions can get extremely personal and may be triggering for some because they do ask very sensitive questions. I'm used to that, as many turkers are, but does not put you in a good state of mind.
Overall, for ten bucks it could be worse but yeah, this kinda sucked.

Health and Interpersonal Wellbeing: 2 HITs Study, Set #2(~ 60 minutes) - $20.00
$23.34 / hour
00:51:25 / completion time
ConsAlmost completely made up of bubble questions that are easy to miss when clicking. Doesn't give a worker the ability to opt out of relationship and intimacy questions if they weren't in a relationship prior and during the pandemic. This is the sort of study in which answering "yes" to a question will add more questions to answer. It makes a worker or participant want to answer "no" to every question.
**EDIT: This FINALLY paid out nearly 4 weeks later.

Location during COVID-19 Survey(~ 2 minutes) - $0.50
$25.71 / hour
00:01:10 / completion time
Pros- Depending on the answers given you may qualify for 2 additional studies. Part one is 90-110 minutes and pays $22.50. There is an optional part of this study where the University will send a saliva collection kit with a pre-paid UPS/Fed-Ex envelope to test for COVID-19 antibodies and immune stress biomarkers for an additional payment of $15 ($37.50) total which is pretty cool if you've been wanting to get involved with research studies/get tested anyway (without paying and actually getting paid for it).
