How our process works
Initial Online Survey (via Email)
In most cases, the Usability Sciences’ recruiters will send out and an initial email invitation to complete an online survey anytime a new study becomes available. This email will contain a brief description of the type of user we are looking for and a link to an online survey. Once you complete the online survey, you will move on to the screening process IF you pre-qualify. The online survey is only the pre-qualifying stage; you will not be compensated for completing any online surveys.
Screening & Scheduling
After you fill out the online survey and if you pre-qualify, you will receive a call from a recruiter who will take you through a phone screen. If your answers match a segment that is needed for the research and if schedules align, you will be scheduled at this time.
Confirmation & Reminders
Once you qualify and are scheduled by the recruiter, you will receive a confirmation email detailing instructions of the remote or in-person session. The day before your session, you will receive a Reminder email asking you to sign our NDA/Video Consent and for you to confirm your session. We ask that you reply to the reminder to let us know we are still on your calendar. If you do not respond, a recruiter will call to follow up, but if you do not answer/contact us back, we may have to replace your session.
We conduct remote and in-person research. We ask that you always arrive to your session 10 minutes prior to your scheduled time. During the session you will work with one of our researchers who will gather feedback on the product/website being evaluated. Remember to think out loud and share your opinions and feedback throughout the session.
