I am studying the effect of virtual worlds on science inquiry skills. Participants between the ages of 18 and 65 should have had an Second Life avatar for at least 5 weeks before:
- taking an online pretest (~20 minutes),
- working through some basic genetics content (~20 minutes),
- and taking an online posttest (~20 minutes).
Upon completion, the avatar's account will be paid $500Linden.
If interested, please proceed to the Informed Consent Form here:
Cut and paste the link into your browser's address bar if it does not work directly. Alternatively, try accessing it through the Google browser that rhymes with dome.
At the end of the Informed Consent Form there is a link to the pretest/survey to begin your participation. After you complete the pretest/survey, you will be notified both at your email address and avatar account what steps to take to complete remaining ~40 minutes of the study.
I initially posted this as my noob post but I'm still seeking participants so I'm posting here to the employment classifieds.
