The Bring Your Own Device Method in Experience Sampling Studies

As technology continues to shape the way we conduct studies, researchers are increasingly opting for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) for experience sampling. In this post, we will explore some of the advantages and important considerations when implementing a BYOD approach in experience sampling, focusing on how each aspect will impact participant motivation and burden. […]

Participant Daily Burden’s Impact on Momentary Ecological Studies

In our last post, we addressed incentives and their impact on an experience sampling study. In this article, we will discuss another key domain in drafting a successful ESM study: daily burden. Burden might be defined as the length of experience sampling sessions plus the frequency of prompting, and the impact of these daily interruptions on participant motivation.

How to Use Incentives in an Experience Sampling Study

In our previous post, we discussed the value of balancing participant motivation and burden through sampling protocol. In this post, we will discuss the ways in which incentives can be used to increase participant motivation. Whether intrinsic (altruistic or prosocial) or extrinsic (financial or achievement-based), the inclusion of a thoughtful incentive structure to your study

Drafting an Experience Sampling Protocol to Decrease Burden and Increase Motivation 

In our prior post, we discussed balancing participant burden and motivation in experience sampling studies. This article focuses on designing a protocol that strikes this balance. You might think of the ESM protocol as the design blueprint for a study. Researchers can optimize their ESM protocol design for a coherent theoretical and empirical approach, ensuring

Balancing Participant Burden and Motivation in Experience Sampling

Experience sampling is a valuable tool for researchers to gather data on various aspects of people’s lives. However, finding the right balance between participant burden and motivation is crucial for successful studies. In this article, we outline four keys to striking the optimal balance between burden and motivation.  1. Protocol Design in Experience Sampling Having
