In your download, you’ll find the ‘Studies’ folder that contains five research publications that have used EMA to collect data from their participants. (Some of these studies will refer to ‘ESM’ but they mean the same thing.)
The aim of this exercise is to attempt to replicate the studies described in these publications.
The necessary information has been highlighted in yellow in each of the publications so that you don’t have to read through the whole thing! Information about the specification that can be ignored has been highlighted in blue.
The studies will not give full details on the survey questions asked. We ask you to use the details given, and your own imagination, to create suitable surveys.
When you have completed one, save it as ‘Study X’ where X is the number given in the filename, and move on to the next one.
If you have any questions or are unsure how to proceed, please ask one of the researchers for assistance.
Once you’re done, please move on to Exercise 3.
