The Emotive Computing Lab at CU Boulder are looking for participants for a study of eye movements and brain activity during learning.   

You are eligible to participant in this research study if you:

  • CU Boulder student, faculty or staff member
  • At least 18 years of age
  • Fluent in English
  • Have a computer with a stable internet connection available to complete the sessions, on which you are willing to install Zoom video conferencing software
  • Have normal or corrected-to-normal vision

Thanks for your interest in the study! The study has two parts lasting around 1.5 hours total. Both parts of this study will take place remotely, through an online survey link for you to do at home. Payment for the whole study is $25 as Amazon gift cards.

In part one, you will read a series of texts about science. During and after reading, you will answer some questions about the text. This session should take about an hour, and you will be paid $15. For the duration of this first session, you will be sharing your browser screen with the experimenter via Zoom video conferencing software, therefore we ask that you sign up to take part at a specific time. 

For the second session, you will answer more questions about the text and provide some demographic data. We will send you the link to this survey two days after completing the first session, and you will complete it at your own convenience. This session should take 30 minutes, and you will be paid an additional $10. Payment will be via an Amazon gift card.
