Sunday Survey (Invite only)(~ 5 minutes) - $1.00
$11.58 / hour
00:05:11 / completion time
ProsThis is a week long study where as long as the worker completes the daily HIT as required, they will earn at least $1.00 USD each day.
ConsThe amount of time to complete the HIT itself would be considered "Good", however, the study itself has a lot involved. As of todays HIT, I've been given an assignment this week to workout 20 minutes on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday using an app I was required to download to participate in this week long study (which is fine, that was covered already). I knew about the app and workout component while taking the qualification HIT, however, the week assignment just assigned to me now requires a non-workout component to be completed, documented, and proof submitted (on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday) along with the workout component on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday. While it's possible I may have missed mention of this non-workout aspect being part of the study, I don't recall any mention of this (completing, documenting, submitting proof of non-workout activities) in the initial qualifier HIT. My understand is that we need to submit information on a site external to MTurk as well. So while everything conducted on MTurk may *appear* reasonable with time invested, this study is actually fairly underpaid. It's possible to get kicked out of the study (or even rejected) if the work outside the MTurk platform isn't completed.
Day 1 Survey (Invite only)(~ 10 minutes) - $1.00
$3.83 / hour
00:15:40 / completion time
ConsThis was absolutely horrible. I should have returned it, but I promised I would complete these in the qual HIT, and it hadn't been approved yet. I didn't want a rejection.
There is no "game" here. You just try to learn a list of words.
At the end, you take a quiz for what you learned. The words are on the page for reference, but it doesn't tell you which ones you got wrong and won't let you submit unless everything is correct.
I went back and forth and realized it was "wrong" because I had an extra space in one of the 30 words!
Awful, and I'm supposed to do 3 more sessions of this.
Underpaid, not fun, poorly constructed. Stay away!
Flossing Follow-Up Study (Invite only)(~ 4 minutes) - $0.50
$13.74 / hour
00:02:11 / completion time
ProsIt's short. It pays well with your typical survey layout. No fuss, no muss. In the first part I was asked about my flossing habits and whether or not I would agree to send pictures of myself flossing. I agreed to it but it kind of just slipped my mind without the daily reminders. Despite that, I got this invitation to complete the final survey which I thought was neat. By the time I was finished writing this review, it had already approved.
