Pre-study experimental survey – An eye-tracking-study

As a pre-study for the planned experimental survey, the eye-tracking study "Consenting Without Being Informed: Testing Approaches to Improve Consent Procedures in Online Surveys" was conducted in collaboration with EYEVIDO. The experimental study examined whether and how participants read or evaluated the study and privacy information at the beginning of an online scientific survey, and to what extent the way the information was presented influenced both information and consent behavior. We were interested in which tabs were unfolded and which information was read and for how long.
We provide summarized results of the study as a video, which was presented at the 72nd Annual Conference of the International Communication Association (ICA).
