Training

A training pool is a set of unpaid tasks for training performers.

Training tasks contain correct responses and hints. If a performer responds incorrectly, a hint is displayed on the screen. The performer must enter the correct response before continuing to the next task.

To let the performer get access to the main tasks only after training, link the training pool to the main one.

For a training pool, a skill with the name <project name> - training is created automatically. The percent of correct responses by the performer is stored as the value of this skill.

The skill is deleted after a period specified in days in the Retry after field, if the performer:
  • Has a skill value lower than the one specified in the Level required field.
  • Didn't complete any tasks linked to the training during this period.

Creating a training pool

To run a pool with training tasks:

  1. Click the Add Pool → Add Training button on the project page. Fill in the fields:

    The number of days after which the performer can pass the training again.

    To allow the performer to repeat the training, fill in the field:

    • If a performer failed to pass the training they will regain access to it after the entered number of days.

    • If the performer does not complete main tasks during the specified period, they will have to pass the training again to get access to the main pool.

    Issue in task uploading order If this option is enabled, tasks are assigned to the user in the order they are listed in the TSV file.
    Shuffle on page If this option is enabled, tasks on the page are shown to the performer in random order.
    Complete passing

    If this option is enabled, the performer must complete all the tasks in this pool to pass the training.

    You can load more training tasks than required for passing the training and specify the number of pages required for setting the skill and accessing the main tasks.
