If you take too long to submit the study you are participating in, you will time out.
Your submission will be displayed as "timed out". Under normal circumstances, you will not be paid for "timed out" submissions.
- Researchers must specify the "Estimated Completion Time" for a study
- How long a participant should approximately take to complete a study
- Researchers also specify a "Maximum Allowed Time"
- You should always aim to complete the study in less time than allotted maximum completion time
This mechanism ensures that studies are completed in a reasonable time period.
The maximum time allowed for completion is set such that it is not too close to the estimated completion time. It is calculated as follows (where X is the estimated completion time): Minimum Maximum Allowed Time = 2 + X + (2*sqrt(X))
