Thread: How does Mturk filter for qualifications?

  1. #1

    Question How does Mturk filter for qualifications?

    Hi everyone. Does anyone know how Mturk filters people for the qualifications? I wa not able to find anything on the web.

    I would be interested to know how Mturk filters for location and for age. I guess that for the location, Mturk uses the IP address of people. Can you confirm this? How about the age? What tools do Mturk use to assess that?

    Location is assigned by Mturk from your verified registration/account information. IP addresses are useless (easily circumvented) due to VPN and Proxy Servers.

    Age falls under Premium Qualifications

    The workers fill out a survey. In other words, self reported.
