Mem­o­ry researchers often want to assess how new infor­ma­tion is con­sol­i­dat­ed or for­got­ten over pro­longed peri­ods of time. Run­ning mul­ti-ses­sion stud­ies online requires sig­nif­i­cant invest­ment from par­tic­i­pants and researchers alike, and can be a cost­ly endeav­our if things go wrong. This talk will pro­vide tips for assess­ing and main­tain­ing data qual­i­ty dur­ing learn­ing and retrieval tasks. We will con­sid­er the admin­is­tra­tive load of run­ning mul­ti-ses­sion stud­ies, and ways to ease the stress of track­ing eli­gi­ble par­tic­i­pants. While online stud­ies can be an extra­or­di­nar­i­ly rapid form of data col­lec­tion, appro­pri­ate pac­ing dur­ing mul­ti-ses­sion exper­i­ments is impor­tant for both min­imis­ing data loss and main­tain­ing sanity.
