Online data collection is revolutionizing many aspects of experimental psychology by allowing access to large and (potentially) diverse participant populations. However, the skills required to successfully manage an online experiment are somewhat more complex than a traditional experiment design.
For example, researchers need to have an understanding of web servers, databases, encryption, cross-browser web programming, etc. The goal of (psiTurk is to provide researchers an easier way to jump into online data collection while leveraging a number of “best practices” that improve data quality and replicability. We’ll give an overview of what makes psiTurk helpful in these respects, and answer people’s hands-on questions about psiTurk, online data collection, open source project management, or anything else!
