Dear J201 students,
You are invited to participate in an online study concerning what people learn from reading news stories. By taking this online survey, you will receive 0.5 extra credit points for J201. In total, we expect your participation to take approximately 20 minutes. This study will be open until Friday February 23rd at 10pm.
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. Douglas McLeod, Evjue Centennial professor, and graduate students in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication are conducting this study. If you have questions about the project, please contact Prof. Douglas McLeod at email@example.com.
If you would like to receive extra credit, but do not want to participate in the study, you may attend an alternate lecture on Friday March 23rd 11am-12pm, 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 lecture.
You must be at least 18 years old to participate in this study.
