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 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. 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. However,
you will receive a compensation only if you finish the whole task. Please complete the task in one session, rather than taking breaks.
You should use a desktop or laptop computer in full-screen mode.
Mobile or tablet devices are not allowed.
You should use Google Chrome. Other browsers are not allowed.
If you are using the browser with an ad blocker you need to disable the ad blocker and then refresh the current page.
If you don't disable the ad blocker, your participation won't be valid and you won't be given any compensation.
It is very important that you pay careful attention to the task and do it properly. We will check how you interact with the website during the task.
If we feel that you are not going through the required steps, or if we feel that you are just rushing to the end without reading the instructions,
you won't be given any compensation. So it is in your interest to put in some effort and do the task properly. If you have an ad blocker,
disable it now and refresh the page before clicking the Yes button below. If you do not have an ad blocker just click the Yes button below
to start the task.
I understand the nature of the study and I agree to take part in this experiment
