Thread: 2 quick questions on launching MTurk surveys

    Question 2 quick questions on launching MTurk surveys

    I am about to launch a new survey. What is an appropriate amount per HIT for a 20 question survey that will take 5-10 minutes? I prefer to price above the average and I was thinking 20 cents per survey - since that equates to $10 per hour. There are no qualifications on the survey.

    Also, what's the best way to include a verification code for a surveey link to Survey Monkey? I believe the best practice is to include a textbox for workers to include their worker ID in the HIT and in the actual survey (at the end), then I can match those to the responses on MTurk.

    Thank you for the advice!!!

    I just posted a 10 minute survey, n=1400, today for $2.50. I value my participants' time and contribution to my own career goals, so the least I can do is pay $15/hour. 20 cents for 10 minutes is $1.20/hour, NOT $10. I hope you made a typo.

    As to verification codes, I just have them enter their Worker ID on both the survey and the HIT, then I remove it from the survey once they've been approved so their submission remains confidential.

    Thanks so much - I am going to use your rates at $15.00 per hour. Yes, I meant to ask if $10 per hour was fair enough and the math I shared was incorrect.
