Amazon's Mechanical Turk is rapidly revolutionizing the way researchers collect data online.
But as anyone using MTurk can attest, it was never built with the behavioral researcher in mind.
After running several experiments online, and struggling to manage the thousands of MTurk users who did our experiments,
we realized there needed to be a better way to manage this subject pool.
We created Turkitron as a means to manage the large number of MTurk workers participating in our research.
We also decided there was no need keeping it to ourselves, so we made Turkitron free for all behavioral researchers using MTurk.
In addition, we are grateful for the generous support provided by
the Victoria University of Wellington in Wellington, New Zealand.
They have offered to host our website free of charge.
