UCL students needed for online retention and attitudes study

30 May 2018

All UCL students are invited to participate in an experiment run by the UCL Jill Dando Institute of Security and Crime Science looking at how personality influences online information retention and attitudes.

Retention and attitudes study

Who is it for?

The researchers are looking for all UCL students to participate - you can be any age, at any point in your study (undergraduate or postgraduate), and from any discipline. All you need is a high standard of English and a computer log in, as the study will use university PCs.  

What will it involve?

It's a fun experiment where you'll complete a series of tasks on a computer (requiring an active UCL login). You'll be asked to interact with a brand new webpage that's about to go live, and complete some survey questionnaires. It will take less than an hour to complete, and as it's a novel experiment, we're really interested in your engagement and opinions.

What else do I need to know?

The experiment is running from 31 May to 15 June 2018 with multiple times available. The experiment will take place in the Archaeology 117 Computer Cluster, 31-34 Gordon Square. All data will be anonymous and will only be used for academic purposes.

How do I sign up? 

If you're interested in participating, sign up for your preferred date/time via Doodle poll

This study has received ethical approval (ref: 12273/003)
