Abstract

Duplicate respondents across related experiments are a substantial problem for conducting programmatic research on AMT. In this tutorial, we provide a straightforward alternative that allows researchers who use Qualtrics to exclude workers who participated in a previous study. This approach allows researchers to exclude workers who have completed any HIT before, without having to use AMT’s Command Line Tools.

Keywords: Mechanical Turk, Qualtrics, Research Methods
