Query String Parameters
TurkPrime will add the following query string parameters to your url so you can take advantage of them in your data collection. The parameters are: workerId, assignmentId, and hitId.
  • workerId-The MTurk Worker Id
  • assignmentId-A unique id that Amazon generates for a worker taking your HIT
  • hitId-The id of your HIT
For example, if your Survey Link is https://www.example.com, we will add the above parameters to the url so the final url might look like https://www.example.com?workerId=ABCD1435&hitId=35hgfsbdu&assignmentId=vbwjebwufg. You can then take advantage of these parameters by setting up Qualtrics Embedded data

How Workers are Approved

(optional) Secret Completion Code that workers must enter to complete the HIT. (Alphanumeric characters excluding numbers 1, 0 and letters I, O, l)

If you are managing your own secret code then you should leave this field blank and check off Custom Code below

Note: Your Secret Completion Code must be prominently displayed on the last page of your survey and without ANY punctuation before or after it like this:
Secret Completion Code: AJFHBG897
Note Regarding Dynamic Completion Code
Please be advised that Dynamic Completion Code is designed for Qualtrics studies that do not contain redirects for which the survey URL changes. To test that your survey is properly set up before you launch it, click on your survey's TurkPrime Survey Preview link (in the Dashboard) and test your survey. See our blog post for more details and how to set up Dynamic Secret Code for surveys with redirects.

MicroBatch

MicroBatch HITs
Some issues to be aware of with MicroBatch
  • Please be advised that MicroBatch HITs take longer to complete. The average study takes 1 hour per 7 workers, but times may vary.
  • MicroBatch will not be enabled if the Time allotted for your HIT is more than 90 minutes
  • Additionally, MicroBatch will not be enabled if you Include Workers
The survey will be batched into small HITs
(Duration for survey must be 90 minutes or less and you cannot include any Workers for this to be enabled)
The time delay between successive Micro Batches.
If left blank, the value will be system optimized.
The number of particpants per Micro Batch. Value of 9 or less will save 50% off MTurk fees.

Worker Requirements

Worker Qualifications

Note Regarding HIT Approval Rate
When you set HIT Approval Rate (e.g. 80-100%) TurkPrime automatically sets Number of HITs Approved to be at least 100 since MTurk assigns an Approval Rate of 100% to Workers who have completed less than 100 HITs (MTurk API Reference).
HIT Approval Rating: 80-1000000%
Worker needs to have completed between 500-1,000,000 HITS
