Prolific is a platform for real scientific research and our participants take this seriously, often going above and beyond in their diligence when completing studies.
Each researcher now gets Stars to award optionally for really great submissions to their study. Each researcher has N Stars (N=5% total participants). They can optionally award these to participants, if their submissions were of particularly high quality.
In addition, we’ll be starting to feature “participants of the month” on our blog. That is, each month we’ll pick a participant who has collected exceptionally many Stars and say thanks with a prize – a Prolific T-Shirt.
