- What is behavioral research?
- Behavioral research is the umbrella term for experimental studies on human behavior in multiple contexts, such as consumer behavior, economic incentives, and group behavior.
- When are studies offered?
- Studies are offered daily at Harvard Business School and online (as available). Sessions have run from 9am to 6:30pm, and we plan to host more nights and weekend studies.
- What will I be asked to do?
- Many online and lab experiments ask computer-based questions on a range of topics that affect preferences, emotions, and beliefs. You may be asked to evaluate a product, perform a decision task, or interact with other participants in an economic simulation. Often you will perform a combination of both computer-based tasks and interactive activities, such as a team exercise or negotiation.
- How many times can I participate?
- Participants may sign-up as often as studies are available. 90-minute bundles run on a consistent schedule (Tues/Thurs semi-monthly) and pay $25, plus bonuses. Individual studies are available online and in the lab on a weekly basis.
- How much money can I make?
- Compensation ranges from $15-25, and has been as much as $35 after bonuses. Payment depends on whether the study session is 30, 60, or 90 minutes. Giveaway items and food/snacks may also be available.
