In order for undergraduate students in eligible psychology courses to register for the Psychology Participant Pool, go to: http://uwindsor.sona-systems.com. The specific dates and times of the registration period are also listed on the website.
On the web-based form, students provide demographic and contact information and respond to a limited number of selection items that have been submitted by individual researchers for the purpose of identifying subsamples for research (e.g., “Would you describe yourself as a practicing vegetarian? Yes/No”; “Were you adopted into your immediate family? Yes/No”). These questions have been approved by the appropriate ethics review committee.
Your acccounts are carried over from term to term and passwords remain the same. If you forget your password, click "Lost your password?" on the left side of the Pool page. If you experience further difficulty, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Go to http://uwindsor.sona-systems.com and select “Request an account here” on the left hand side of the screen. Follow the instructions carefully. Please note that the "Request an account here" link is only available while the registration period is open. It is not posible to request and create an account once the registration period has closed for the term.
All participants are required to use their uwindsor e-mail address when creating an account and in all communication with the Participant Pool and researchers.
Please review the manual carefully. Everything you need to know to take part in the pool as a participant is included in it. [Click here]
Check the Participant Pool web site (http://uwindsor.sona-systems.com) for a list of important dates (e.g., When the registration period closes; the last day by which you can assign credits to courses). These dates are updated every semester.
If you have any difficulty registering for the pool, signing up for studies, assigning earned credits to courses, or interacting with researchers, please email the Participant Pool Coordinator at email@example.com.
If you have questions about a specific study, please contact the researcher for that study (which can be found by logging into the system and looking at the study).
If you choose or are not able to participate in any research studies, you can still earn bonus marks in your eligible Psychology courses by completing equivalent, alternate assignments specified by your course instructor. Refer to you course outline or contact your course instructor about the alternative assignment.
