Interactive experimentation is a fundamental tool for conducting research in the social sciences. Yet, it has been underused on Amazon Mechanical Turk because of its logistical complexity and uncertain reliability. Here we show that basic behavioral patterns in the lab are replicable online, and that its implementation is accessible. We then provide measures to improve designs and retention.
