1. Exempt App (labeled lastnamefirstinitial_IRB Exempt App)
2. Creation of a single-Word doc that will have copied & pasted onto it all other documents required by the IRB (labeled lastnamefirstinitial_Add’l Docs for IRB
Expedited App):
Checklist
Informed Consent (filled out as it will be received by the participant to sign – see examples)
CITI Certificate of Completion (Completion Report in pdf format)
Bio & Role form
Survey Questionnaire or focus group questions that will be used pre and post exactly as they will appear as well as
Copy of email or scriipt for requesting participation
Any handout or presentation used for the implementation (e.g., information sheet, rubric, etc.)
Site approval letter (one or two short paragraphs giving permission from principal, director, etc.)
Internal Review form only if you are conducting research as a Keiser employee at a Keiser campus
Note: if you have trouble submitting these two separate documents in the assignment area for week 6, submit the IRB App as the assignment and email the
Add’l Docs document to your professor. You will then continue to work with your professor until the application is in its final form and approved by your
professor to be submitted to the IRB Committee (DO NOT SUBMIT DIRECTLY TO THE IRB AS YOUR PROFESSOR WILL SUBMIT ALL OF YOUR DOCUMENTS
WHEN READY FOR REVIEW).
Also note that the single Word doc is for purposes of working with your professor to get all items in final form and to eliminate the submission to your
professor of multiple documents. Prior to submission to the IRB next week, you will create a pdf document for the IRB app and add’l docs so everything is on
one pdf document (instructions are in week 7).
