Seeking participants for a criminology research study

Dr. Owen Gallupe from the Department of Sociology and Legal Studies at the University of 
Waterloo is leading a study examining the effect of the sight of rewards on task 
performance and is looking for undergraduate students to participate in a one time, 30 
minute experiment. This study has implications for incentive programs to promote good 
behaviour in prison settings. All participants will be provided with a $20 gift card to local 
businesses for their participation in this research.

Participation will include a simple mental task followed by a short questionnaire.

You must be at least 18 years of age to participate in this study. The experiment will be 

conducted in the Psychology, Anthropology, and  Sociology (PAS) building, room 2084 or 
2085. Your identity will remain strictly confidential. All information you provide will be treatedas anonymous.

If you would like to participate, have additional questions, or would like additional 

information to assist you in reaching a decision about participation, please contact Pat 
Lalonde by email at  p2lalond@uwaterloo.ca. You can also contact ogallupe@uwaterloo.ca or 519-888-4567 ext. 33361.

If you choose to participate, Pat Lalonde (p2lalond@uwaterloo.ca) will work with you to find a suitable time. 

If you participated in our previous study, you cannot participate in this one.
