Task Instructions

Effective instructions are geared towards the ordinary person.

Do:

  • Use simple language that anyone who completes your task will understand.

  • You’ll notice that your target contributor is highly customizable. Put yourself in the shoes of this contributor before writing instructions for your task.

  • Contributors aren’t completing your task in a vacuum - take the time to imagine the optimal setup for completing your task. Should they be outdoors? Indoors? Should the contributor record audio with their phone close to their mouth or place it on a table?

Don't:

  • Don't include the reward amount
    • Contributors might use other display currencies

Knowing these things will make it easier for contributors to complete your task, and generate more usable responses.
