You'll use the study link to start an Unmoderated Study on your mobile device. You can find this link in your invitation email, or the researcher may send it to you directly.
Once you open the link, you'll answer the researcher's screener questions.
The question(s) in a screener will vary depending on what the researcher is looking for in a test participant.
In some cases, the researcher may also ask for your name and email address.
If you don't qualify for the study, we'll let you know. Unfortunately, you won't be able to retake the screener.
The next step involves the Validately app. If you haven't installed the Validately app installed, you can download it from the App Store (for iOS) or Google Play (if Android).
Next, you'll complete a quick tech check to verify you have a working microphone. You'll also have a chance to review some helpful tips to make sure your study is successful.
You may need to give Validately access to your microphone, to continue. To do this, just tap, "yes".
Next, you'll review examples of what the task button looks like and how it works. You can move it anywhere on the screen and open and close it as needed.
Next, you'll need to share your screen. Your screen will be recorded during the entire study. Once the study is over, the recording will end.
After you tap Begin study, a pop up will appear asking to start broadcasting. Tap, Start Broadcasting to begin the study. A countdown will begin to let you know the study will start soon.
