For my dissertation I'm planning using a phone-tracking company (RescueTime) to install an app on students' mobile devices that will track the time spent (NOT the content) on their social media accounts. Does anyone know of a better or cheaper way to do this than what I have planned?

Matthew,

I don't know about better options but, you may want to check with RescueTime to see if they have special pricing for researchers.

Camille,
They do offer a slightly reduced price, I think its $5.60 per respondant for one month of tracking, compared to $7 or $8 normally. So with a couple hundred participants, that will save me a bunch!

cheers,

Hi there -

Since this thread is about phone tracking - I was curious if anyone has an IRB approved example that incorporates RescueTime. We are using it and was hoping to get a gauge on successful IRB and consent language. Thanks!

I had my original plan (with rescue time) approved by our IRB, but then changed gears when I realized it was only software made for laptops and android phones

Hi Matthew - is there any chance you have a sample of the original IRB that you may consider sharing? I would appreciate a guide. Thanks for considering!
