We are looking for participants for a study taking place tomorrow, Thursday 24th.
In our studies participants face a variety of choice scenarios, and their choices lead to cash rewards. (The average overall compensation is competitive. Everybody is paid.)
Participating in economic studies (known as economics experiments) is a fun way to learn more about economics. No previous knowledge of economics is required. Indeed, that is often a plus.
(Economics experiments are fun, use no deception and no physical stress of any kind. Your identity is kept confidential from other participants.)
We would thus like to encourage you register to participate in our on-going 30 mins. eeconomics experiments. To obtain more information and to register in order to participate, please go to:
(UTREC approval code: EC12356).
