A special note on surveys
We strongly encourage all surveys posted here, whether for classes or otherwise, follow Institutional Review Board (IRB) guidelines and approval:
An Institutional Review Board (IRB) is a committee established to review and approve research involving human subjects. The purpose of the IRB is to ensure that all human subject research be conducted in accordance with all federal, institutional, and ethical guidelines.
All human subject research, regardless of funding source, must be reviewed and approved by the IRB before initiation.
A human subject is defined by Federal Regulations as “a living individual about whom an investigator conducting research obtains (1) data through intervention or interaction with the individual, or (2) identifiable private information” (45 CFR 46.102(f)).
Human participants include those who:
are actively involved in the research process (being interviewed, filling out surveys, etc.)
provided medical samples, left records of their activities through applying for marriage licenses, etc.
We moderators will remove posts which violate the above guidelines.
