When a student registers, the PsychMate software generates a random subject number and ID number for each student. The subject number is provided to the student and may be viewed by logging in to the students' online PsychMate accounts and viewing the 'User Info' page.
However, the subject number is never provided to the instructor. Additionally, a student's name and ID number do not appear in any data file. Therefore, a subject number and data file cannot be linked to any individual unless the student chooses to disclose that information to the instructor. Also, an instructor is not permitted to generate a summary of participation until at least 20% of the class has completed the experiment.
