Psy 5103 week 7 – assignment: assess challenges of conducting

 

Warm-Up Activity 7.1: Review APA Code of Ethics

This week, take time to review Standard 8: Research and Publication of Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct With the 2010 Amendments, located under your weekly resources.

Warm-Up Activity 7.2: IRBs and Human Participants

Read the information located under your weekly resources about Institutional Review Boards and experiments with human participants at:

  • American Psychological Association. (2012). Responsible conduct of research. Washington, DC.
  • U.S. Health and Human Services Department. (n.d.). Informed consent frequently asked questions.

Assignment

APA Ethical Standard 8 – Research and Publication, emphasizes the need for psychologists to inform participants about the purpose of the research, expected duration, and procedures as a part of the informed consent process. It requires psychologists to inform participants of their right to decline to participate and to withdraw from the research once participation has begun and the foreseeable consequences of declining or withdrawing. It also requires that participants be informed about the limits of confidentiality and incentives for participation. Rebers, Aaronson, and Schmidt (2016) identified three main categories of reasons for waiving the informed consent requirement: (1) decrease of data validity and quality; (2) distress or confusion of participants; and (3) practical problems. Practical problems include the possibility of selection or consent bias, which may result when the group giving researchers access to their data differs from the group denying access (Rothstein & Shoben, 2013).

For your assignment this week, you are being asked to prepare to submit a research project to the Institutional Review Board (IRB). This is a hypothetical project, you will not have to actually conduct the study. However, you will have to justify whether or not you are going to give the participants in your study a limited informed consent, or a fully informed consent.

Here is a bit more about the study itself:

You have decided to study how a very noisy environment differentially affects male adults and female adults, or boys and girls. One of the areas you are assessing is their ability to complete a reading comprehension task under those conditions. Your hypothesis is that female adults and girls will be less affected by high level noise than male adults and boys. In this case study example, if you provide a fully informed consent, you would need to include the  expected findings within the informed consent form.  As such, you might unintentionally influence the results – so you might add a statement that this is not a given, but what your hypothesizing.  As an alternative option, you can opt to provide a limited informed consent, where you do not reveal what you expect to find within your informed consent.  If you opt for this approach, you want to argue why it is okay to exclude this information from the consent form, focusing on how this might allow for more valid results to be obtained.

To support your decision, you will provide the IRB with a 1-2 page summary of your argument for one of two options – either a) a fully informed consent, or b) a limited informed consent.  Provide support for your decision with a minimum of 3 scholarly sources, citing the specific APA ethical code for Standard 8 at least once in your response. 

Length: 1-2 page summary paper with a minimum of 3 scholarly sources (1 of the 3 citing the specifics of the APA Ethical codes for Standard 8). 

Your assignment should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course by providing new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards where appropriate. Be sure to adhere to Northcentral University’s Academic Integrity Policy.
