Dear Subject 08675:

Thank you for your response to the Internet Surfer Research Group (Lab 00309) advertisement. This new and innovative hands-on lab will enable Central Research Labs, Inc. to gather data about the typical Internet user as well as to assess the user's ability to retain new information. We, as well as billions of Internet users, are appreciative of your time and effort.

In order to ensure the credibility of Lab 00309, we must ask that you complete the following questionnaire. This is merely to guarantee that our sample group is an accurate portrayal of the Internet population. Your information will be kept confidential.

1) What is your main purpose when accessing the Internet?

2) How often would you say you "surf" the web?

3) When surfing the web, do you normally follow hyperlinks (click-able links within the page) or type addresses into the URL bar (white bar at the top of the browser page)?

4) How many pages would you say are on the World Wide Web?

5) What search-engine (if any) do you use when finding information?

6) To the best of your knowledge, how does the search engine, Google, work?

Your answers will now be sent to our Subject Processing Department. Please record (or print) your answers for your records then press Submit.

Again, thank you for your time. To eliminate any possible bias and ensure anonymity, please memorize your subject number, as your name will not be used. Your monetary compensation will be mailed at the completion of Lab 00309. We look forward to working with you.
