Dear J201 students,
Here’s another opportunity for you to earn .5 points of extra credit for J201. You are invited to participate in an online study. The purpose of the study is to examine what people learn from reading news editorials. Your participation in this study will involve reading a news editorial and answering related questions.
This study can be completed online and may be taken on any computer with an Internet connection at a time and location of your convenience. We expect your participation to last less than 20 minutes. This study will be open until 11:59pm Sunday, Oct. 24.
In order to participate in this research study, you need to be at least 18 years old. Your participation is completely voluntary. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the researcher, Douglas McLeod at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 Nov 3, 12pm-1pm, Vilas 5157. Please note that you cannot receive credit for both—you will get a maximum of .5 points for participating in this study or attending the alternative lecture.
