What will I learn here?
The link to the RULES page to the right of the login box ("Please click here to read the rules for student participation") will tell you what is required of you for your course. This page will help you navigate the registration system, and to tell you WHO TO CONTACT when specific problems arise.
What are the basics I need to know?
To start, click on "Request an Account" on the right-hand side of the page. Type in something easy to remember for your USER ID. BE SURE TO type in your e-mail correctly. Double-check exactly what it is before you type it in because this is the number one reason why people have problems with the system. BE SURE TO SELECT the proper course. To do that, double-check the name of your instructor, the day/time you meet, and the room before using the drop-down menu.
The system will send login information to the e-mail address you have typed in. Before you log in for the first time, prepare to devote 20-30 minutes to a prescreen survey (see more information below). After that, you can register for the studies that interest you. The system will send you reminder messages so you won’t miss your sessions. If you know you have to miss a session, please contact the researcher to let them know as a courtesy. The system will also send you a message when you have received your RPU credits. In addition, you can keep track of your points by logging into your account at any time. Important! Do not delay signing up for experiments because they can become scarce as the semester wears on.
1. Why can't I create an account?
Because the system is temporarily turned off. It will be turned on shortly, or if you are experiencing this problem between semesters, it will be turned on once the semester has officially started.
2. I created an account but I am not receiving my messages (e.g., my login information).
3. What is the pre-screen survey?
4. What if I mistakenly selected the wrong course when I registered, or have changed sections since I registered? How can I be sure I get my RPU points?
5. When should I expect my RPU points?
6. I went to the study and nobody was there. Who should I contact?
The Researcher. She or he should be willing to give you at least partial credit, if not full credit if you, in fact, showed up the right time and place.
7. The Website is acting weird. What should I do?
