NORC AmeriSpeak Panel Selected for Use in TESS Research Studies
NORC’s AmeriSpeak Panel, a nationally representative, probability-based survey panel, will collaborate with the Time-Sharing Experiments for the Social Sciences (TESS) online platform to conduct all successful TESS research study proposals.
TESS has supported general population experiments on behalf of investigators throughout the social sciences since 2002, and the program recently received renewed funding from the National Science Foundation. Led by principal investigators James Druckman of Northwestern University and Jeremy Freese of Stanford University, the online platform works to promote innovative experimentation and to provide researchers with a no-cost opportunity for data collection and discovery, as well as to house an online collection of exemplary social science experiments.
Participants in TESS’s Short Studies Program (SSP) will also be recruited from the AmeriSpeak Panel. This program accepts proposals for fielding very brief population-based survey experiments on a general population of at least 2,000 adults.
