Wednesday evening I had a participant come into lab for a research session. This was the first session I've had since I've been back for the semester, so I made sure to get to lab very early just in case I'd forgotten how to set something up. Everything went very smoothly. I was able to figure out all of the news forms that I needed and all of the computers and cameras were problem-free.
The mother and daughter who came were very nice and seemed really excited about the whole process. They really seemed to enjoy hearing what the study was about and participating in it. The new computer tasks went well, they got a little long and repetitive and I could tell that the participant was getting pretty bored with them. Overall though, she seemed to enjoy the session and the tasks, she was very excited about all of the goodies she got at the end, which I think was pretty motivating.
For my first session back, it went very well. I really didn't run into any problems. I have two more sessions on Friday, hopefully those go just as well!
