External Study Credit Granting with PsychData

While these instructions refer to “credit granting”, they work for both credit and paid studies. For paid studies, participation will be marked (instead of credit granted) just like with any other paid study.

Here are the basic steps, which are subject to change (since the product is controlled by PsychData):

  1. On your Sona Systems site, change the Study URL so it includes &sona_id=%SURVEY_CODE% in the URL. So if the PsychData URL is:https://www.psychdata.com/s.asp?SID=12345
    then change it to
  2. Having completed Step 1, the Study Information on your Sona Systems site now displays a URL labeled “PsychData End of Survey Custom URL Redirect”. In PsychData, configure the survey to accept the survey code number, using Capture Custom Values. Click on Settings then enter “sona_id” in the Capture Custom Values section.
  3. Finally, in the End of Survey section on the Settings page in your PsychData, paste the “PsychData End of Survey Custom URL Redirect” value from Sona into the Custom URL Redirect field in PsychData.
