~10 minute study about your attitudes and opinions - $1.20
$7.94 / hour
00:09:04 / completion time
ConsStarts with multiple bot checks, a recaptcha, and some rejection threats.
Whole lotta reading/recall followed by basic political survey.
Demos. Then some surprise "whatcha thinking about?" writing style questions followed by "In your own words, please briefly summarize what this study was about. Failure to accurately summarize the article may result in your HIT being rejected. So, please be as accurate as possible." And then....more rejection threats in the form of bubbles. Super reassuring.
Answer a survey about your opinions - $0.60
$21.60 / hour
00:01:40 / completion time
ProsSimple scenario, not too many bubbles.
ConsExtensive demographics which are one question per page for many of them.
Threatens twice to "exclude" you from future studies if you cannot provide adequate details on questions answered and one of those questions includes writing.
No thanks buddy, I think I will exclude myself from your studies from now on. Don't talk to us like we are children.
~3 min for $0.60, bonus of $1.40 for 7 additional minutes - $0.60
$7.01 / hour
00:05:08 / completion time
ConsThis survey had me do mandatory writing after filling out information and then abruptly told me that I didn't qualify for the survey after a last demographic question. I spent time carefully writing because of the promise of a bonus and was told I would only get the 60c base pay. I guess free information for them. I wonder if they will use my 400+ characters. Anyway.. it wasn't worth the time.
Advice to RequesterDon't ask people to write paragraphs BEFORE you decide whether they are qualified for your HIT.
