Hi! My name is Annabel, and I'm a requester on MTurk (http://turkopticon.ucsd.edu/A3HB3KPJ2RZ2K8). I'm on here to ask you guys how I can make my HITs more efficient so I can keep running them. Right now, my funding is becoming a bit limited, but our project still needs a lot more information. Each HIT currently pays $0.50. I was advised to lower this amount to $0.20, but I am trying to avoid this.
Right now, the HIT consists of 10 comparisons. Each comparison asks people to compare two sentences with each other, and to select the sentence that is the most important one. The sentence that is selected the most amount of times by people is the most important sentence. In short, we need to know how important each sentence is compared to another sentence.
I do have an idea to address this (change the task so that people compare groups of sentences with each other so we get more data, and slightly increase the base pay), but was wondering whether there were other ways out there.
