About Project Master
Are you a male social drinker, 21-30 years old and interested in dating women?
Project MASTER has returned after a brief pause due to COVID-19 and is looking for men of ALL ETHNICITIES to participate in a study on dating experiences with women.
Project MASTER is a federally funded study on alcohol and dating experiences between men and women. The research is being conducted by Associate Professor Kelly Cue Davis of the Edson College of Nursing and Health Innovation at Arizona State University.
Project MASTER prioritizes participant safety and is following all ASU and CDC recommendations to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
EARN UP TO $395! The study includes participating in a questionnaire session in our lab at the downtown ASU campus, a 32-day daily survey assessment, and a second visit to our lab for a beverage administration experiment.
The questionnaire session will take place in our lab on the downtown ASU campus. During your study visit, you will be in a private room, by yourself, and will interact with only trained research assistants. You will be asked to complete a questionnaire that includes a variety of questions about your behaviors and attitudes and cover some sensitive topics like sex and alcohol consumption. The questionnaire session will take about 2 hours and all COVID-19 safety protocols will be followed.
After you have completed your questionnaire session, you will complete one short survey per day for 32 consecutive days. The daily surveys can be completed on any device or computer, and will take between 5-10 minutes to finish. Similar to the questionnaire session, the daily surveys will include a variety of questions about your behaviors and attitudes and cover some sensitive topics like sex and alcohol consumption.
Once you have completed your 32-day daily survey assessment, you will return to our lab for a beverage administration experiment. As with the questionnaire session, you will be in a private room, by yourself, and will interact only with research assistants trained to guide you through the experiment. In addition, you will be given a beverage that has a 50/50 chance of containing alcohol. If you receive alcohol, the amount given is intended to raise your blood alcohol content (BAC) to .08%. Following beverage administration, you will read a sexually explicit story about a dating situation that might happen to a man your age, and will answer questions on the computer about how you would respond in that situation. All COVID-19 safety protocols will be followed during this visit to our lab.
You will be paid $30 for the questionnaire session and $5 for each daily survey completed. When you come into the lab for the beverage administration experiment, you will receive $15 per hour for the time you spend in our lab with a minimum of $50. You will receive an additional bonus of $100 if you complete all 3 phases of the study with 80% or more of your daily surveys completed. This means you could earn up to $395! You will be compensated via Amazon gift card to your email within two weeks of the beverage administration experiment. We also have bus and light rail tickets available for those who need them, as well as parking compensation up to $10 for ONLY the questionnaire session. If you complete the questionnaire session, 80% of your daily diaries, and the beverage administration experiment, you will be entered into a drawing with 1 out of 25 odds to win an additional $100 gift card!
