How can I estimate how many REP points I need?
One REP point of credit is awarded for 30 minutes of participation (or any part thereof) in your study.
Note as of Fall 2013: In person studies in Elliott Hall, can compensate participants for travel time. Add 1 point to to the time it takes the participant to complete your study.
The REP system will calculate how many total points you need. You just provide the number of participants you want, how many points your study offers and how many minutes it will take participants.
|If your study takes:||minutes:||points:|
|Up to 30 minutes||30||1|
|31 - 60 minutes||60||2|
|61 - 90 minutes||90||3|
|91 - 120 minutes||120||4|
|121 - 150 minutes||150||5|
|151 - 180 minutes||180||6|
|181 - 210 points||210||7|
|211 - 240 points||240||8|
Please do not inflate the number of points by requesting more participants than you need or by inflating how long your study takes for an average participant to complete. The REP allocation process works when all players provide accurate estimates of their needs.
