Setting up your first study with Resultal in three easy steps — A quick start guide

2 min readJan 9, 2020

So you created you account and are ready to collect data, but where do you start? Setting up your first study might seem daunting at first, but if you follow and remember the structure of every Resultal-study you can set it up within minutes!

Globally, every study within Resultal and WorldBrainWave consists of three separate layers:

  1. Experiment
  2. Task
  3. Question

Think of it as building a drawer or cabinet. First, you start off with the framework that will hold all the other elements (Experiment). Then, you build and add the separate drawers to your construction (Tasks). Finally, when the framework is complete, you can fill the drawer with your properties and belongings (Questions). However, you do not know the exact characteristics of your possessions and want to discover as much as possible about them, that is why you need to invite others (Participants) to describe them to you. The more people look into your drawer and interact with your belongings the more you know about your possessions (Data).

To help you build this drawer within the platform, we created three simple animations that show you step-by-step how to continue. Of course, you start with the framework first (Experiment):

Then you add the drawers to your framework (Tasks):

And then you fill these drawers with the content you want to discover more about (Questions):

That’s it! Creating your first study can be done in three simple steps. Are you ready to build your first drawer? Go to Resultal to make an account and collect your data.
