Research Participation Website Purposes • For Researchers: • Provide online “message board” to post research and recruit participants. • For Students: • Provide online access to view and sign up for posted research. • Receive extra credit for participation.
Participating in UB Research Guidelines and Procedures
How it all works…. • Researchers post their research on the website. • Students sign up for research. • Experiments, surveys (paper-and-pencil or online), etc. • Students participate in research. • Instructors add extra credit to grade. (dramatization)
How does the extra creditapply to my grade? • Studies offer different amounts of credit • 1 credit = 1 participation hour • e.g., a 3-hour experiment would earn you 3 credits • 1 credit = 1% point added to final grade • OR: 1 credit = 1 point added to total points • Max credits = 15
Participation is VOLUNTARY • You do not have to participate in any studies if you do not wish to receive extra credit. • Once you begin a study, you have the option to leave it at any time. You will receive credit in proportion to time spent participating (1 credit minimum).
Important Guidelines for Participation • Sign-up/cancel appointments • must be done at least 24 hours in advance • No shows: penalty credits • Lateness: researcher can decide whether or not to allow participation
