Representative of participants recruitment
What is representative of participants recruitment
On conducting usability test and focus group, selection of participants will become very important component, which have decisive influence on the quality of the evaluation. Control of detailed requirements, such as age, gender or what products they have used before may be necessary. Also, the recruitment itself is very time consuming process, and will take a lot of time.
On behalf of the client, we take this important but time-consuming recruitment work.
Here, we manage information of those who have registered as participants in database. Presently (August of 2009), more than 5000 people have registered with us, and therefore, we can respond to various requirements of participants.
How to proceed the recruitment
- We will make arrangement about participants' requirements.
- Based on the result of the above, we will start the recruitment. If necessary, we will inform the recruitment condition (intermediate step).
- Select the participants for the study, contact them and send them the map to the site. We also give them a remind call on a day before.
