OSoC and TESoC

I’m delighted to announce that the School of Communication has funded my proposals for two new shared research resources.  The first is called TESoC, an online research pool for the School of Communication, modeled on TESS. Each semester graduate students and faculty may apply for up to 400 participants for their online experiments.  The second is called OSoC, and it will provide access to an annual omnibus survey with a large representative sample of Americans.  As with TESoC, applications are competitive, but the program will run for at least five years and our hope is that most of those interested in participating will have an opportunity to do so.
