The speaker will be Jenni Rodd, Experimental Psychology, UCL.

Title: Moving Experimental Psychology out of the Lab: How to maintain data quality when you can’t see your participants


Researchers are often nervous about collecting experimental data online because unlike lab-based experiments they cannot meet their participants and can’t directly observe their behaviour. I will summarise some of the issues that arise from invisible participants, and suggest possible solutions that (i) maintain data quality and (ii) allow principled decision about when online data collection is (and is not) appropriate. I will also suggest that this approach to data quality control is often missing in lab-based settings and that the lessons we have learned due to running experiments online can be broadly applied to a range of experimental approaches
