Please read the instructions carefully before starting
You are about to take part in an experiment conducted by the University of Manchester. This experiment asks you to look at some data and answer some questions (minimum 1, and maximum 4) by entering the required numbers with your keyboard. The data that will be shown to you is about the risk of fire and related consequences in schools. The aim of the task is to investigate how people reason about risky situations such as the event of a fire. We will record your answers and the interaction events. Do not worry if you think you do not know the answer to the questions. Try to provide an answer anyway. And do not worry if you think that your answer may be wrong. We are interested in how people interact with the data while reasoning, rather than assessing performance.
Before starting the actual task we will ask you some information about yourself (age, gender etc.) and some questions related to how comfortable you are with numbers and calculations. Your answers will be anonymous. You can withdraw from the task whenever you want, for any reason, without giving any explanation. Please complete the task in one session, rather than taking breaks.
I understand the nature of the study and I agree to take part in this experiment
