Announcements for Current Students

Changes in survey and IRB reviews

If you are conducting research using human subjects, the study must be reviewed and approved by the Roanoke College Institutional Review Board (IRB) before you begin data collection. . In an effort to simplify the review process for surveying Roanoke College faculty, staff or students, the survey review has been incorporated into the IRB review. There is now one application, which is to be submitted to the IRB. Institutional Research will continue to distribute electronic surveys. While the review process has changed, the Roanoke College survey policies remain in place: http://roanoke.edu/A-Z_Index/Institutional_Research/Survey_Policies.htm. The IRB review form has been changed to incorporate information for survey review but also to separate out questions that appeared in the previous review form. There may seem to be more questions, but that�s not the case. In the previous form there were several questions that were grouped together under one heading. Consequently, some questions were not answered, which required follow-up correspondence by the IRB. It�s hoped that the new form will speed the review process. The IRB review form is now in pdf format, which should make it easier for both PC and Mac users.
