Ethical and Professional Responsibilities for Experimenters

  • Experimenters are expected to maintain appropriate appearance and conduct when interacting with participants.
  • Adherence to all human participant guidelines and IRB regulations is required.
  • A thorough debriefing of participants must be conducted for all studies.
  • Careful training and monitoring of all student assistants and others who will be coming in contact with human research participants must be done by the principle investigator for the project.

Mass testing
Mass testing occurs at the beginning of each fall and spring semester, and is an opportunity for those doing research with the pool to screen or pretest participants for particular characteristics. The Participant Pool Coordinator will provide information to faculty before each semester about the mass testing procedures. All experimenters wishing to participate in mass testing must receive approval by the Participant Pool Coordinator:
