- Event Details
You are invited to participate in a research study being conducted by researchers in the School of Information at The University of Texas at Austin. The purpose of this study is to understand how people interact with, and form trust judgments about online communication. Your participation will contribute to a better understanding of the factors that influence trust in online communication.
The study will be held in the Information eXperience Lab at the School of Information (5th floor of the UTA building). During the study, you will be required to sit in front of a desktop computer on which you will complete several survey questions as well as read and assess news-related tweets.
The desktop computer will be equipped with hardware and software to track your eye movements and assess your facial expressions. The eye-tracking software allows for participants who do not wear corrective lenses or who use simple (single-lens, non-progressive) eyeglasses or contact lenses to correct near-sightedness, far-sightedness, and/or astigmatism. However, due to limitations in the eye tracking software, unfortunately we will not be able to accept participants who use bifocal or progressive lenses; who have had eye surgery; or who have eye abnormalities such as amblyopia, strabismus, or nystagmus.
Participation will take approximately 60 minutes. If you meet the study criteria and complete all study tasks, you will receive a $20 Amazon.com Gift Card.
