Professor Michael Visser, a professor of economics at Sonoma State University, and two economics students are conducting a study of economic decision-making.
Participants will be paid $5 for showing up to the experiment. In addition to the $5 show-up fee, you will be paid for participating, and the amount of money you earn depends on the decisions that you make during the experiment. If you make good decisions, you stand to earn a considerable amount of money. At the end of the experiment you will be paid privately in cash for your decisions. A research foundation has provided the funds for this experiment.
The experiment will be in Schulz 1121, which is on the first floor of the library. There will be two sessions. The first is on Tuesday March 28th from 11:45am to 8:30pm, and the second is on Wednesday, March 29th from 6:15pm to 8:30pm. You can come and participate in the experiment any time between 11:45am and 8:30pm on Tuesday, and 6:15pm and 8:30pm on Wednesday, and the experiment should be complete within 30 to 35 minutes. Participants must be at least 18 years old.
The material that we ask participants to read is similar to things found in a newspaper, and none of it is graphic in nature. Although it is unusual, a few participants may find the material that we ask them to read distressing. As a reminder, you can opt out of the study any time. In addition, Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) offers confidential counseling to students experiencing problems.
We can only guarantee space to the first 150 people who RSVP and show up. Please RSVP for the experiment by emailing Michael Visser at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the following information below.
Please indicate approximately when you plan to show up.
Even if you don’t RSVP you can stop by on the day of the experiment to see if we still have space.
