Empower - The Campaign for Northeastern University


Online Experiment in an Art Detective Game-Like Environment

Do you want $10 amazon gift cards for participating in an online behavior study  administered this summer?

We are a research team at Northeastern University seeking participants for an online experiment. In our game-like environment, you play the role of a junior art private investigator. Art theft, forgeries, fraud - will you solve the case, or exploit it for your own gain? Gather information, openly or stealthily, use it to expose the truth, leak it, play both sides and don't get caught! 

Participants are expected to play several sessions during a two week period. Each session takes about an hour, can be completed anytime during the two weeks period, and is compensated with a $10 Amazon gift card. 



  • You must be at least 18 years old to participate.
  • You must have access to an Internet-connected computer or tablet.
  • You should be interested in an art detective game where solving the cases involves reading witness statements and other English text documents that are part of the story.

We will not share your contact information with anyone. We will use this information only to send you more information about our study and to schedule participants for a two week period in the summer of 2017. All participants will be asked to agree to a research consent form.

If you are interested, fill out the following form (it takes less than a minute!) and we will contact you:
