Screeners and Surveys

Some research studies involve completing a quick preliminary question survey called a "screener". These short surveys are designed to help researchers determine who is a good fit for the study. They only take a few minutes, and you will be rewarded with SOL points for completion. The points will be credited to you whether or not you are actually chosen for the study.

Redeeming Points

All the points that you can earn from answering surveys or participating in actual studies can be redeemed for prepaid EFTPOS gift cards worth $30, $50 or $100 in Australian Dollars (AUD). You can spend this anywhere in Australia that accepts EFTPOS. You also have the option to redeem your points for a bank check, redeemable in $20, $40, $100 denominations. If you are the altruistic type, you may redeem by donating your points to charities.
