Sign Up for Experiments

If you are an undergraduate student at Purdue University you have a chance to participate in economics and management experiments. Experiments are designed by individual researchers to study behavior in a wide range of social and business situations. Most of the experiments involve multiple student participants, so they provide a chance for you to match your wits with others. Cash earnings are paid at the end of each session, and your performance greatly affects these cash earnings.

Experiments generally last between 1/2 and 2 hours. After you register, individual researchers will send you invitations by email to scheduled experimental sessions.

Details about each experiment cannot be given until the start of that particular session, since it may affect the outcome. All participation is voluntary and risks are minimal. The experiments and methodology have been approved by the Institutional Review Board at Purdue University.

You can register your interest in being a participant by clicking on the "Sign up" link on the left side of this screen. Please use your Purdue e-mail address when registering.

Any personal information which you give to us will be kept for research purposes only. Every effort will be made to maintain confidentiality.

Participants must register for an account using their email address.
