Extra Credit Opportunity #2

Here’s another opportunity for you to earn .5 points of extra credit for J201. You are invited to participate in an online study concerning what people learn from reading a public health message. Douglas McLeod, Evjue Centennial professor, and graduate students in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication are conducting this study.

Your participation in this study will involve reading a public health message and answering questions about the message and various health issues. In total, we expect your participation to take less than 15 minutes. This study will be open until Sunday, February 19th at 11pm.

You can participate in this study from any computer equipped with a Web browser (e.g., Internet Explorer, Netscape, Mozilla, Firefox, Opera, or Safari) and an Internet connection. If you do not have an Internet connection at home, you can complete the study from a campus computer lab or library.

As with any research, your participation is voluntary, and all of the information you give will be kept strictly confidential. If you have questions about the project, please contact Prof. Douglas McLeod at dmmcleod@wisc.edu.

If you would like to receive extra credit, but do not want to participate in the study, you may attend an alternate lecture about the study on Friday, March 31st 1pm-2pm, Vilas 2130. Please note that you cannot receive credit for both—you will get a maximum of .5 points for participating in the study or attending the alternative lecture.

You must be at least 18 years old to participate in this study.
