What types of studies can I take?

We offer a variety of studies. Most invitations will be for TOL (Think Out Loud) studies, possibly in combination with other types.

TOL (Think Out Loud)
TOL studies require you to think out loud as you complete a task.  Your face and voice will be recorded as you do so. Click here for information on how to take TOL studies.

Non-TOL (Non-Think Out Loud)
Non-TOL studies do not record your face or voice.

Examples of Non-TOL studies:

  • Card sort

    • Card sort studies will give you a list of things to categorize into certain topics.

Moderated
Moderated studies involve a moderator, most commonly a researcher, to mediate and guide you throughout the study. You may be one-on-one with the moderator or with the moderator and a group of other participants. Moderated study sessions will be scheduled in advance.
