NOTE: IF THIS IS YOUR FIRST TIME ON THE SONA SITE, YOU MUST REQUEST AN ACCOUNT TO GAIN ACCESS. IF YOU HAVE NOT REQUESTED AN ACCOUNT YET (SEE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE) YOU CANNOT ENTER THE SITE.
If you are a student in Psy 100 and do not have a SONA account, you may request one by clicking on "Request Account" below and carefully following the instructions on the following page.
Getting Started For Participants:
Once you have created an account and it has been accepted, enter your User ID (this should be your student ID #) in the User ID box the password you selected in the password box. This will take you to the pre-screen page which you must complete before your participant page will appear. More details can be obtained here:
Experiments will begin being posted on the first day of classes and more will be added throughout the semester.
NOTE: IF YOU FAIL TO SHOW UP TO SCHEDULED RESEARCH APPOINTMENTS OR SHOW UP MORE THAN 5 MINUTES LATE, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE STUDY AND WILL RECEIVE A RESEARCH PENALTY. See the participant guidelines linked above for more detail.
Also note that you must be at least 18 to participate in SONA experiments - if you are under 18 years of age, or for any other reason are not able to participate in research studies, you may do ARTICLE SUMMARIES as a substitute for meeting this course requirement. Go here, which contains a link to the online form you must fill out as well as an explanation of the requirements for doing article summaries and a list of the research articles that you can summarize. Clicking on an article will take you to an actual copy of that article.
Getting Started For Researchers:
All new research studies can now be submitted through the SONA system. Researchers that already have an account with SONA may continue to use their old User ID and password. Researchers without a SONA account should e-mail the system administrator to get an account set up. After approval by the Research Coordinator, you will then receive a User ID Number and Password. Enter the user ID # in the User ID box and the password given to you by the Subject Pool Administrator in the password box. This will take you to your user page, where you can monitor ongoing studies and create new ones. More details can be obtained here:
