    Hello,

    On behalf of Alegion, I would like to invite you to complete a learning module and qualification test for a new project we are rolling out that is very similar to our current Alegion Doctor & Nurse Identification HITs. This will be an ongoing project with consistent volume. Completion of the learning module and qualification test should take less than 15 minutes. Please click on the link below to access the learning module. Thank you all for your time and interest in working with Alegion.

    Best,
    Garrett

    Thank you for the opportunity. This was indeed tough so I spent extra time reviewing instructions and triple checking my answers. Good luck everyone.

    Thank you to everyone that completed the training module and qualification test. Qualifications have been awarded to the top performers and batches will be posted intermittently throughout the afternoon. First batch is about to be launched!

    Can we at least get some feedback on the test we took? I mean, I spent a long time reading all the instructions and completing the test but heard nothing about how I did on it. I didn't get an email notifying me that I got the Qualification, nor do I know what my score on the test was. And going through mturk's ridiculously slow, very looooong and disorganized list of granted qualifications will take forever and is a huge waste of time.

    I wish the Qual process was more clear as well, the last two tests I received a "preliminary" qual, the first I was able to grab one HIT on Mturk(mental health I think?) but decided to throw it back until I studied the documentation a bit more so as to give perfect answers, never saw one I was qualled for again.
    This last Medical center or whatever, similar story, received "preliminary qualification" , saw a few that I was qualled for come across my scraper, but was unable to catch any, then all the HIT's after that required "level one" "level two" whatever that is.

    Anyway, to sum it up, I probably have over an hour investested, and apparently received passing scores and still have not one nickle to show for it, but that's fine, wasting my time is why I do this.

    From my experience, once you pass the test, you are granted the preliminary qual. Once you have that qual, there are normally a few batches that are put up that you need to submit Hits from in order to get to Level 1, which is the qual for the actual hits. If you miss the preliminary batches though, I don't think there's a way to get to that Level 1.

    The requester does normally post when he's putting those batches up though, so just be sure to refresh the thread throughout the day once you take the qual test itself to see if he posts.

    Thanks for the info, I appreciate that.
    So spend time doing your best to get the preliminary qual, get it, then spend 24 hours a day hoping to see the next step drop., but if you actually sleep, oh, bummer.
    No offense to anyone, but am I the only one that thinks that is unreasonable?

    Anyone know how many you have to do from the preliminary batch to get the qual to do more? Are people limited to how much they can do on the preliminary, so there's more of a chance for people to get the qual?

    I'm not sure, but apparently we are required to scurry around biting each other like lab rats, and if you find the cheese first you are a "top performer"

    I don't think there's a cap on the hits. I think you can get the L1 qual with as little as 20-30ish hits - but it's dependent on your score and how many you answer correctly.

    Also, the prelim hits probably won't be posted again. IME, they're posted within a few days of test link closing. They usually post them a few times and if you didn't do them, then you're SOL.
