The Research Participant Pool in the School of Advertising and Public Relations at the University of Texas at Austin provides a place for students to locate studies that may interest them and/or allow them to earn credits for courses that require research participation or offer extra credit for participation in research. These studies offer experiential knowledge in research methods for students, while also supporting the research of our faculty and graduate students.
Access to student research participants through the Research Participant Pool is reserved for faculty and graduate students in the School of Advertising and Public Relations.
Fall 2023 Studies will be available to students to earn credit until November 24th at 11:59 pm CST.
Participation in the Pool for course credit is only open to students enrolled in Advertising and Public Relations courses. If you are not in participating classes in the Department of Advertising and Public Relations, please do not sign up for the studies below.
If you are enrolled in participating classes (check your course syllabus or ask your professor if you are unsure), please read about each of the studies and click on the link as instructed to complete or sign up for a specific study. You can only receive credits from a study once. If you need more credits for a certain class or an additional class, you must take another, different study from the pool's list. Review your rights and responsibilities prior to sign-up or participation. If you have questions concerning any of the studies, please contact the investigator of the particular study.
Undergraduate students: The Research Participant Pool is now closed for the semester.
Professors: You will soon receive an Excel sheet containing the list of students who completed the studies for course credit.
Faculty and graduate students who hope to use the pool to recruit study participants need to fill out the Participant Pool Application Form. If you have questions about the application procedure or your study posting, please contact the Pool Administrator or Assistant. The last day to request a new study to be posted to the pool will be Friday, November 17th at 11:59 pm.
Students Verify Participation
The Excel Workbook linked below will offer students a way to verify that they participated in a research project. Each page in the workbook is either a study or a class, so look carefully to find your records listed.
*If you can not access the latest, updated sheet, please clear the cache/browsing history on your internet browser, close out of your internet application, and then try accessing this page again. You should not have to request permission to access the Excel sheet from the link below. Thank you.
It may take up to a week to see this document reflect your participation. You will use your confirmation number to verify participation. The Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA) guidelines do not allow for student names, EIDs, or other identifying information to be posted publicly in relation to research participation. Also, keep in mind that it is vitally important for you to keep your own records of research participation in case of human or computer errors in distributing credit information to course instructors. Your confirmation number is important for both of these reasons. (It may take 7 - 10 days for your number to appear in the Google doc above after having completed a study.)
