General Research Participant Pool:
Who can participate in the general research participant pool? Why participate?
Students in some psychology classes can participate as subjects in psychological studies for extra-credit. We know not everyone needs extra credit, so keep in mind that participation in these studies allows you to gain invaluable first-hand experience with psychological research. In some cases, it may give you ideas for a research project that you may pursue in upper division laboratory courses or in independent research. It also will give you tangible examples of some of the research techniques that you may be studying in your class. Your professor will indicate to you in your syllabus whether or not your class is eligible and how many credits you may obtain. You can also check the listing of FA11 eligible courses.
During the third week of each semester, the Research Participant Pool Administrator, Angie Draheim, will send all students in eligible courses detailed information about pool procedures (what studies count for extra credit, account login info, how to sign up) and policies (cancellations, no-show penalties) via e-mail. You can also download the information from here.
