So what’s the deal with this online credit restriction? – The SONA system will limit how many online studies you can do to ensure in-lab studies get participants. Half of your credits will need to be in-lab. Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) How am I recruited for studies: – Some studies use the prescreen to recruit participants. You will receive an email to participate based on your prescreen responses. This email will either contain a link to SONA to participate or a code you have to enter (still found on SONA). To ensure you can participate in studies, complete the prescreener accurately, keep checking SONA for available studies, make sure you have your email in your SONA account, and keep an eye out for recruiting emails.
