Estimating Points

How can I estimate how many REP points I need?

One REP point of credit is awarded for 30 minutes of participation (or less) in your study. In-person studies in Elliott Hall, can compensate participants for travel time. Add 1 point to the time it takes the participant to complete your study. You can also compensate students for arriving at a scheduled REP meeting in-person or online. Add 1 point to the student's total point for a scheduled meeting bonus,

The REP system will calculate how many total points you need. You just provide the number of participants you want, how many points your study offers, and how many minutes it will take participants.

If your study takes:minutes:points:
Up to 30 minutes301
31 - 60 minutes602
61 - 90 minutes903
91 - 120 minutes1204
121 - 150 minutes1505
151 - 180 minutes1806
181 - 210 points2107
211 - 240 points2408

Please do not inflate the number of points by requesting more participants than you need or by inflating how long your study takes for an average participant to complete. The REP allocation process works when all players provide accurate estimates of their needs.
