Abstract

Across six studies we examined effects of various methods of consent form presentation on participants’ knowledge, attitude, and data quality. These varied methods generally had little effect on knowledge, attitude, or data quality, but shorter forms had some advantages. Future research should assess how to increase participant investment in consent forms included in online studies.
