Training tasks

To train users completing your tasks, create a trainig pool.

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

You can also provide access to the main tasks only for users who give correct responses in the training pool. For this, link the created training pool to the main one.

You can choose if the training tasks are paid or not.

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

    Retry after

    You can let users pass the training repeatedly. Enter the number of days to repeat the training:

    • In a user failed the training he will regain access to it after the entered number of days.

    • If a user does not complete main tasks during the period, he will have to pass the training again to get access to the main pool.

  2. Click Create training. You will be redirected to the training pool page.

  3. Create a TSV file with trainig tasks. Include the fields with hints and correct responses into it:

    • GOLDEN:<field ID in the input data description>. Correct responses (they must correspond to the values in allowedValues in the output specification).

    • HINT:text. Hint text.


    The “GOLDEN” and “HINT” prefixes must be upper-case.

  4. Click Upload on the training pool page. Specify the number of training tasks on page and select the TSV file.

When a training pool is created, a new skill is created automatically. The skill is used to count the proportion of correct answers. Information about the skill is on theUsers' skills page. Skill name: <project name> - training.
