DESCRIPTION OF TASKS:

1) News Content Review & Contribution (The "Primary Task")

News content will be delivered in a "news feed" format. You'll be asked to endorse each news event in the feed as correct/incorrect, and when appropriate correct errors (for accuracy, grammar, relevance, etc.) and supplement rich content such as links to images, videos, or other information pertinent to the news story. No previous technical knowledge is required for this task, you will be trained how to complete this step by step process using our own proprietary user interface (i.e. our website).

2) Sentence Proofreading (A "Supplementary Task" to be complete during downtime)

You'll be asked to answer a series of questions about a sentence. First, you will judge whether or not a sentence expresses a given relationship. For example, sentence (1) is an example of the acquisition relationship, in which one organization acquires another.
(1) Google acquired online-video site YouTube in 2006.
You will be asked a question like:
Does the sentence above announce that one or more companies have acquired one or more other companies?
Yes
No
If you answer yes to the first question, you'll be asked to identify the precise entities (highlighted in yellow in this example) which take part in the relationship. For instance, after answering Yes to Sentence (1):
Which of the following are the companies that got bought?
Google
YouTube
None of the above.
and (in this case you may select more than 1 entity)
Which of the following are the companies that made the purchase?
Google
YouTube
None of the above.

If you have any questions please respond with a message or pose them in your application.

Thank you.
