RePresent is an academic research project in addition to being a teaching game for legal aid organizations. The RePresent team seeks to collect data from users to develop a better platform but also to advance the science on human behavior, learning research methods, and access to justice. In accomplishing our research goals, we take a number of necessary steps to protect the privacy of our users. We work with fully anonymous user data and secure and limit access to profile information to site administrators only. The results of this research are shared with researchers and educators through conferences, journals, and other publications. We may also share the results on the StudyCrafter platform. Your willingness to participate will help shape the next generation of science and access to justice through game-based and crowdsourcing technologies.
