This thread is for discussing the HITs in "Transcribe Earnings Per Share Data Reported in Tables" Here are answers to a few general questions: What do I need to do to receive the qualification? I have set up two different qualification tests. To receive the qualification test, you must correctly input 9/10 HITs on either one of the qualification tests. I have 10/10 HITs accepted from the qualification test. Why don't I have the qualification yet? I've set it up to automatically accept the HITs but I still have to review them for accuracy to determine how many you input correctly. I try to do this at least once a day (except Sundays). How do I know my score on the qualification test? If you input at least 6 of 10 correctly, you will receive a bonus and that email will tell you how many you input correctly. If you didn't qualify and want feedback before attempting the second qualification test, contact me and I'll let you know what you missed. If you don't hear from me in more than a day or two, this means you probably got less than 6 right on the qualification test. If you're not sure, contact me and I'll let you know. I skipped a HIT and could only complete 9 of the qualification HITs. MTurk won't let me submit the HIT(s) I skipped. What should I do? I only review the accuracy for those who have completed all 10 HITs. You can contact me and I will let you respond via email for the HITs you skipped. Or you can simply try the other qualification test. I'm not sure about what is the GAAP EPS or Adjusted EPS in a specific table. Help me! There is some explanation in the instructions that will expand if you click on the blue box within the HIT. Additionally there is the help website with annotated examples. Note: There are some tables where both of these resources aren't enough. In this case, either contact me or skip the table. What are these tables and what are these numbers? What is this data for? These tables come from earnings announcement press releases where companies announce what their earnings were in a specific year or quarter. The GAAP EPS is the earnings per share according to accounting rules, which companies are required to report. Some companies choose to make their own adjustments to this "by the rules" earnings per share number to give another number, which I've labeled Adjusted EPS. Companies use all sorts of different names for these numbers which is why I'm using MTurk to help identify them. This data is for my dissertation. How many tables do you have? I have about 18,000 tables, each of which will be input by two workers. So there will be roughly 36,000 HITs total. I will review the HITs where there are discrepancies between the two workers and will try to post general feedback if I notice trends of common mistakes.
