Each hour long experiment would be worth 0.67% and a 30 minute experiment would be worth 0.33% of their final grad. Some experiments may be longer than an hour (e.g. 1.5, 2 or 3 hours).
Psychology students who elect to satisfy the research participation requirement by serving as volunteer subjects in ongoing research are required to sign up for experiments through the PsychED application program.
The last day for students to participate in an experiment for Fall term is December 21, and the last day of term in the Winter term (click here for updated dates).
In order to have use of the Psychology subject pool, you must provide a substitute assignment. If you do not provide a substitute assignment you will be denied access to the Experiment Database subject pool. Click here for instruction on submitting a substitute assignment.
