We offer a variety of studies. Most invitations will be for TOL (Think Out Loud) studies, possibly in combination with other types.
TOL (Think Out Loud)
TOL studies require you to think out loud as you complete a task. Your face and voice will be recorded as you do so.
Even if you don’t understand the task at hand, talk us through it. We want to hear any and all of the thoughts that go through your mind when taking a study. That’s the whole point after all! Learn more about TOL studies.
Non-TOL (Non-Think Out Loud)
Non-TOL studies do not record your face or voice.
Examples of Non-TOL studies:
Card sort studies will give you a list of things to categorize into certain topics.

SSCT (Screenshot Click Test)
SSCT studies will give you a static image and ask where you might click on it to find something. Learn more about SSCTs.
Online Interviews studies involve a moderator, most commonly a researcher, to mediate and guide you throughout the study. You may be one-on-one with the moderator or with the moderator and a group of other participants. Online Interview study sessions will be scheduled in advance. Learn more about Online Interviews.
Diary studies require you to do tasks over a determined time period and document your thoughts/ findings.
Much like Online Interviews, scheduling for this will be done in advance. Learn more about Diary Studies.
