Divergent Thinking Survey

Here’s a funky little survey I did yesterday. I guess the undergrad student is looking for participants with normal vision and those who are legally blind. Here’s the blurb about it.

If you could please post this wherever you would see fit to advertise, I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you! I am looking for survey participants who are legally blind and computer literate. Participants must be able to complete timed tasks. The survey is for an undergraduate research project conducted by my professor, Dr. James Kaufman at California State University, San Bernardino. The survey can be accessed at the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/8CHSFM9
Thank you for your time!

One thing to note. For reasons I don’t understand, the consent form was written out as well as placed in a graphic. So when it says picture as described above, the picture is in fact of the consent form you just read. When I read that, I thought the survey was starting, and this crazy person was asking blind people to agree or disagree with photos or something. But once I realized what was going on and clicked yes, all was good.

I didn’t like the wording on some of the questions, but I’m comforted to know the student herself is totally blind, so it’s not the case that completely ignorant folks are doing this study. I emailed her about the questions and it sounds like she didn’t have much of a choice in them either. Total boo, because I don’t think they’re getting at the true variable they’re trying to measure.

The theory is totally not what I expected. If you do the study, do you end up supporting the theory? If you comment, don’t let the cat out of the bag as to what the theory is.
