Social Psychology


The Social Psychology community explores published research in the field and conducts relevant studies. Interns are responsible for aiding in the ideation and completion of studies. They also summarize research articles and present their findings with the rest of the group. By using 1Cademy, interns learn how to break down articles into granular and connected concepts to best communicate their findings to other community members. We value collaborative learning and expect interns to participate in group discussions to dive deeper into the content. Topics that the community will explore in a research setting include the effects of achievement/effort on performance, ways to increase motivation, and ways to diminish misinformation. While some initial work has been made, interns are welcome to join as soon as possible to receive the necessary training and begin collaborating with us.

Create an account and Schedule for our knowledge representation test.

One of the most important aspects of 1Cademy is its unique knowledge representation format. To become a researcher on 1Cademy, you should first engage in one of our ongoing research projects, as a participant. In the project, randomly chosen for you, we will test which type of knowledge representation format works better for your reading comprehension, short-term learning, and long-term learning. This will not only help us improve the design of 1Cademy, but along the way, you will get experience about how to use 1Cademy. For this purpose, you should create an account on our research website and specify your availabilities for three sessions with our UX researchers. In the first session, they will ask you to read two short passages and answer some questions about those passages. This will take an hour. The second and third sessions will be only for 30 minutes each and follow a similar format. Note that it is necessary to complete the second and third sessions, exactly three and seven days after the first session. So, please carefully specify your availability on our research website.
