- What to expect when you participate in a research study
You will be met at the designated location by the researcher, who will give you appropriate instructions and conduct the research. Most of the studies will be conducted by advanced psychology majors under the supervision of a faculty member.
The researcher should have you sign a Consent Form before you participate in the investigation. If consent is not formally requested (i.e., with a Consent Form signed by the researcher), you should refuse to participate. Please notify Donna Greene of such an oversight by the researcher. You will still receive 1 credit for that study.
You may refuse to continue your participation at any time during a study. You will not be penalized for terminating the study, but you will receive credit only for what you have completed (e.g. if you have completed 25 minutes of a 1 hour study you will receive 0.5 credits instead of the full 1 credit).
After the study, you will be given detailed information regarding the purpose of the investigation (debriefing). Take this opportunity to ask any questions or raise any issues concerning the research.
This opportunity to become involved in psychological research should be both instructional and enjoyable to you. It is important that you take your task as a participant seriously because the data obtained in these studies may be included in statistical analyses that ultimately result in published reports.
Please do not contact your professor about participation credits. If you have a question, contact Donna Greene.
