Note: Submissions are no longer being accepted.

Help researchers out by taking 20-30 minutes out of your day to create three avatars using the website Pick-a-Face.*  All participants who complete the ­­­avatars will be entered into a drawing to win a $100 Visa gift card.  You must be 18 years or older to participate.

To get started:

  1.  Go to http://moodle.csun.edu/course/view.php?id=11648.
  2. Login into Moodle using your CSUN id and password
  3. Enter enrollment key “csunSTUDY”
  4. Click on the link “Avatar Study Consent Form”
  5. Here you will find links to the following documents: Informed Consent and Experimental Bill of Rights. You will also find directions on how to submit your consent and begin creating avatars.

* The Pick-A-Face website requires flash, so it does not work on an iPad. If you start on an iPad, you can always log back into your moodle later on a different device to complete it.
