FindingFive Community Update

Researcher Interview: Shannon Grippando

The core mission of FindingFive is to make the life of behavioral researchers just a little bit easier when it comes to conducting online studies. We are curious about how much success we have achieved, and how much work there is left to do. To that end, we asked a few researcher users of FindingFive for their thoughts on the…

Tutorial: Recording participant responses

FindingFive allows you to record a number of different types of participant responses. This blog post will cover the basics of how to collect your data using choice responses, ratings, free-text responses, and audio responses, along with a few ways to customize various types of responses. Soliciting choice responses A common response to solicit from participants is a choice among…

Crash Course Part 2: Running Your Study

FindingFive allows you to quickly and easily design experiments for deployment on the web. In this crash course, we will take a detailed tour through some of FindingFive’s features by designing a simple memory study: a modification of Tulving (1975). We highly recommend you follow through this example carefully before creating your own experiment. To see a working demo of…

The mystery of extra MTurk workers

For researchers who run their FindingFive studies on the Mechanical Turk platform, you may have occasionally got more subjects than requested. For example, the researcher may have requested 10 participants, but at the end of a session, FindingFive reports 11 completed your study, and Amazon only has a record of 10 workers who completed your HIT. There’s one extra mechanical…

Introducing Property Inheritance

Hi there! We are excited to announce a handy new feature, called Property Inheritance, is now available to researchers on FindingFive. It is now possible to utilize parent-child relationships within stimuli, responses, or trial templates, where the children inherit all properties defined in their parents. For those of you who are familiar with object-oriented programming languages, this should already sound…

Extending the duration of an existing session

We have finally implemented (the first step) of a feature that many researchers have asked for – extending the end time of an active session. It happens. Sometimes participants are slow to show up. By the time they have finally decided to do a study, the session has ended. Then you’ll have to set up everything all over again. This…

Researcher-end feature update: Your study list now loads a little faster

If you have created quite a few studies on FindingFive, you may have noticed that it took increasingly longer for the study list to load. This was annoying and shouldn’t be the case. We have recently spent a bit time tackling this issue. There are two factors involved here: Although the study list was paginated (meaning it displays only a…

Data Engineer needed

Update June, 2018: (This position has been filled. Thank you.) Hey there! FindingFive is looking for a “Principal Data Engineer” (if you like fancy titles) to join our current team. The PDE will be responsible for An operational mission: Creating an administrative interface that allows the FindingFive Team to efficiently monitor and manage the operations of the FindingFive platform (for…
