5 male students and 5 female students may have the opportunity to help us improve teaching at university.

The outcome of this study may have beneficial effects to all students at LMU. Thus, we would really appreciate that you can help!


What we expect from participants:

For a limited time depending on your examination dates - for example from July 1st to July 31, 2016, you will receive a fitness bracelet (Fitbit Charge HR) from us.

You agree to wear this fitness bracelet as often as possible during this period of time (so as to make it possible to gauge the tracking system) and in any case during your exams (so as to perform the study). Surely, we encourage you to get used to fitbit and wear it at anytime as you feel comfortable.

At the end of this period of time, at a day and time agreed upon with you, you will return the fitness bracelet to us in good condition.

You will complete an online questionnaire of 15 questions an hour before you do your exam and another online questionnaire of 15 question an hour after you will have done your exam. In total it would be 6 questionnaires, but it would only take your 5 minutes for each.
