Exit Survey: At the time you complete your graduate training at FSU, the Graduate School’s Clearance Advisor will contact you and ask if you are willing to participate in an RCR Exit Survey, which is designed to determine if the Responsible Conduct of Research and Creativity course was useful in preparing you to deal with various aspects of responsible research that you may have encountered during your graduate training here at FSU. All students submitting their theses and dissertations to the Graduate School will be invited to participate. If you choose to participate, and you took the Responsible Conduct of Research and Creativity course, you will be asked to complete a short electronic survey which will ask if you believe that the course prepared you to deal with circumstances involving responsible conduct of research and creativity. You will not be asked to provide your name. Completing this survey should take approximately ten minutes.

If you choose to participate, and you did not take the Responsible Conduct of Research and Creativity course, you will be asked to complete a short electronic survey that will ask you to answer questions which will ascertain your knowledge of the core areas of responsible conduct of research and creativity. The questions are either multiple choice, true-false or yes-no. Some of the questions are based on case study scenarios. You will also be asked whether you were prepared to deal with circumstances involving responsible conduct of research and creativity. It should take you approximately 10 to 15 minutes to take this test. You will not be asked to provide your name.

If you have any questions regarding this evaluation study, or the Exit Survey, you may call Dr. Judith Devine at 850-644-3501, or email jdevine@fsu.edu. Any questions regarding your rights as a participant in evaluation studies may be directed to the Chair of the Human Subjects Committee at Florida State University, Institutional Review Board, through the Office of the Vice President for Research, at 850-644-8633.
