*Schedule Request

Recommendation: include at least 30 minutes of transition time for each session.
This transition time is useful for paying subjects, setting up the lab and checking people in for the next session. Sessions following one another should be scheduled after Duration of Experiment + 30 minute Transition Time.

For example, an experiment that is 60 minutes long with Session 1 at 10 AM, it would be wise to schedule Session 2 at 11:30 AM or after.

Xlab staff support (to check subjects in or pay them) is normally available between 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM on work days.
