Hi Josh and everyone out there,
I suspect I am not the first to ask this question but having trawled the thread haven’t yet seen the answer that will settle me.
After the buzz of seeing participants rolling into my study, I noticed that the average hourly rate had changed from my estimated rate quite a bit. From what I have read here and understood from the various blogs, I will still pay them the estimated rate I published - is this correct?
This was the first stage of a 2-step study to create a custom allow list and so the study should at best have only taken 1 minute. A few participants have taken anywhere between 8-10 mins which has pushed the average response time way beyond the median.
Thank you - I really want to get on and approve submissions - I raised a ticket to check but that could take 72 hours and I’m keen to keep the group interested in my research by sending out the next round tomorrow latest.
