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 8.02 emphasizes the need for psychologists to inform participants about the purpose of the research, expected

duration, and procedures. 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).

You are preparing to submit a research project to the Institutional Review Board(IRB). This is hypothetical and you will not have to actually

develop the proposal. However, you will have to justify the reason you are providing only very limited informed consent. 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. If you provide informed consent, you may contaminate the results.

To support your decision, you will provide the IRB an Annotated Bibliography consisting of research, which either omitted informed consent,

or research that discusses the decisions surrounding the use of informed consent in research.

The first step in this assignment is to find research articles, which as indicated above, may include:

examples of research that omitted informed consent

examples in which informed consent may have contaminated the results

research that discusses the use of informed consent in research.

The second step is to summarize your research in Annotated Bibliography format. You must include a utility statement for each entry

concerning the relevance of the article in supporting your decision to omit informed consent.

After completing the Annotated Bibliography, you will write a brief paper that summarizes your argument based on the articles you have

reviewed.

Length: 8 annotated entries, and a 1-page summary paper

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.
