Thank you for your interest in the Diary Study. The study will be conducted online in its entirety but it will only start on SUNDAY. You cannot start before you receive our email on Sunday containing further instructions and your unique subject ID number. We anticipate that this study will take 60-70 minutes to complete which is why we offered 3 credits. On overage, participants spent 25 minutes to answer our surveys on the first night, then 10 minutes each of the following nights. On a related note, as a researcher, it is concerning when a participant completes a study much too quickly. It may suggest that they did not seriously complete the tasks and that their data may not be reliable. Bad data is a real problem for researchers. If you spend a considerably shorter amount of time (less than 50%) than the average participant to complete the study, we will adjust the credit(s) you are going to receive. I hope you understand our concerns. What we are asking is that you simply pay careful attention when completing this study.
