Tasks

To create main and control tasks, create a pool and set pool parameters, then load a TSV file with task data. You can track task completion statistics on the pool page.

A project can include the following types of tasks:

  • Main tasks — The tasks you create to get responses from performers.

  • Training tasks — The tasks to train performers. Training tasks contain a hint and correct response. The performer's response is checked against the correct response. If a performer responds incorrectly, a hint is displayed on the screen. The performer must enter the correct response before continuing to the next task. You can provide access to the main tasks only for performers who passed training successfully.

  • Control tasks — Tasks for checking. They are used to filter the performers who give incorrect responses too often. Control tasks contain the correct response.

Task page

A task page is a set of tasks placed on the same HTML page. Performers are paid for completing the entire page. You can define the number of tasks per page, depending on the complexity of tasks, their interface and time needed to complete them.

You can use one of the following methods to split the pool into task pages (the method is chosen when loading tasks into the pool):

  • By yourself (specifying the contents of each page).

  • With the help of Toloka (“smart mixing”). You need to upload tasks and determine how many main, training, and control tasks should be on each page. Toloka generates task pages so that the performer doesn't get repeated control and training tasks.

Data for the tasks

The data for tasks (such as images) can be stored on Yandex.Disk or received from other HTTP services.
