I'm trying to set up a document on how to make a dummy (compensation) hit for when I run into requesters who do not know how to set one up instead of trying to write it every time I run into a new requester.
How does this sound? Should I add or change anything? I also set this up as a Google doc if you want to edit it or keep this in your files on the chance you ever need it.
This is how to set up a compensation (dummy) hit
You can set up a single HIT for the worker which would require a special code (code is sent to you via email) or by using the worker?s ID in order to be completed. Anyone else attempting to submit this HIT would receive a rejection. You can set it up for $0.00 and pay you as a bonus or set it up for the amount of the HIT so you will not be charged by MTURK for setting up a hit.
The thing you can do is set up the title of the HIT as:
"This HIT is for worker ID 1234567890 ONLY - All other submissions will be rejected"
Then in the body of the HIT they can put:
"PLEASE NOTE, THIS HIT IS FOR A SPECIFIC WORKER ONLY. ALL OTHERS WILL BE
Confirm that they ae the Worker by asking them to enter their worker ID or password that you supplied to them in an email in the hit.
