We study the McKay correspondence for representations of the cyclic group of order p in characteristic p. The main tool is the motivic integration generalized to quotient stacks associated to representations. Our version of the change of variables formula leads to an explicit computation of the stringy invariant of the quotient variety. A consequence is that a crepant resolution of the quotient variety (if any) has topological Euler characteristic p as in the tame case. Also, we link a crepant resolution with a count of Artin-Schreier extensions of the power series field with respect to weights determined by ramification jumps and the representation.
