Ethics in Psychological Research

This in-class activity may be used with upper level undergraduates or new graduate students in research methods courses. It is designed for use with small collaborative groups and requires about 50 minutes of class time. Students will apply their knowledge about Belmont principles, APA ethical guidelines, and IRB review. Given information about a study, students will determine which category of IRB review is most appropriate, identify applicable Belmont principles and decide whether or not the study conforms to the principles, perform a risk and benefit analysis, and finally redesign studies to minimize risks.
