What’s Inside<br />An overview of the new features that are being introduced:<br />Workers Statistics: Data on who is doing work for you, their performance on that work.<br />Manage Qualification Types: Create new Qualification Types in the UI and assign them to Workers to create Qualified Worker groups. <br />Worker Management Tools: Bonus, Block and assign qualifications for a specific Worker.<br />
  3. 3. Worker Management Benefits<br />Our goal is to make it easier for you to find Workers who are good at your HITs.<br />These new tools will:<br />Identify good workers by giving you data on who’s in your workforce and how they perform so you can easily.<br />Allow you to easily manage Workers and Qualification Types.<br />Save you time by providing information so you can prioritize your audit systems and send work to your best Workers.<br />
  4. 4. Key Concepts<br />
  5. 5. NEW - Workers Tab<br />See a list of all Workers who have submitted Work to you, their Qualification Types and Block status. Make modifications via CSV. <br />Customize your view by selecting the Qualification Types to be displayed (select up to 5). <br />New Tab! Found under the “Manage” tab. <br />Download a CSV of all your Workers. <br />You can assign a Qualification Type, change a Workers Qualification Score and modify their Block Status in the CSV and then Upload the CSV back to Mechanical Turk to process the changes. <br />Click on a Worker ID to take action on an individual Worker.<br />
  6. 6. Making changes via CSV<br />Download the CSV Worker file. Upload it with your changes.<br />Many Requesters use Excel to edit the CSV file. <br />Block a Worker by changing their Status to “Block”, to remove a block update to “Unblock”<br />Change the score assigned to a Worker. Assigning a score, assigns the Worker the Qualification Type. <br />
  7. 7. NEW - Individual Worker pageAccess any worker with their ID at this URL: https://requester.mturk.com/bulk/workers/<workerID#> <br />This page summarizes a Worker’s performance on your assignments. <br />Stats shown represent all work done to date (lifetime). <br />Click the buttons to Bonus or Block this Worker. To send a bonus you will need the ID of an assignment the Worker has submitted to you.<br />Edit a Worker’s Qualification Score. <br />Revoke a Worker’s Qualification by clicking the icon.<br />
  8. 8. Block & Bonus a Worker - details<br />Bonus:<br />Must include an Assignment ID (can be from any assignment completed by this Worker, usually found in a previous HIT file). <br />Include a reason which is shared with the Worker. <br />Blocks:<br />Requires an explanation (not shared with the Worker).<br />In order to reject & republish work, you will need to click on the Worker ID while reviewing Batch results. <br />
  9. 9. NEW - Qualification Types tab<br />Create your own Qualification Types so you can route work to specific Workers. <br />See name, ID, # of Workers with the Qualification, creation date & description <br />New Tab! Found under the “Manage” tab. <br />Dispose by clicking the icon.<br />Disposing will permanently delete the Qualification. <br />
  10. 10. Creating & Disposing Qualifications<br />To create a new Qualification Type add a Friendly Name and a Description – both are visible to Workers. <br />Assign to Workers via CSV or on their individual Worker page.<br />Disposing of Qualifications Types is permanent and removes it from the system. <br />
  11. 11. Using Qualifications in HITS<br />When you create a HIT template use your Qualification Types to route work to specific Workers.<br />Select a System Qualification or one of the Qualification Types you have created. <br />Define the score criteria required for a Worker to be eligible to do the work. <br />
