Student Research

Student research must be reviewed if the student is collecting data (e.g., tasks, interviews, videotaping, tests, observations, etc.) from human participants, or if they are administering a treatment of any kind to human participants.

Institutional Review Board

Work closely with your faculty advisor to write, review, and edit the IRB protocol. Your faculty advisor should submit the IRB protocol, as one document, to the College of Education IRB Chair: Marla McGhee.

Students and advisors will receive feedback from the College IRB Committee within approximately two weeks of the submission date.
