Thank you for agreeing to participate in this survey. You will be asked a series of questions about your attitudes towards masculine gender role norms, or your perception of appropriate behavior for men, your attitudes towards father involvement, and your ideas about women. This survey is part of a study being conducted by Noell Adkins, an undergraduate psychology student at The University of Akron under the direction of Ronald Levant, Ed.D., faculty member in the Department of Psychology.
If you are participating for extra credit you will receive 2 extra credit points. At the end of this form fill in the information including your name, UANET ID, and the class you wish the extra credit to be credited to. After we award you extra credit, the identifying information will be erased. Additionally, any data obtained will only be viewed by the researcher named above. This data will in no way be connected to the answers you provide on the survey.
If you are participating for the chance to earn one of the two $50.00 Visa gift cards (which can be used at any location that accepts a VISA credit card), at the end of this form you will be redirected to a website that will allow you to enter in your mailing address. In case of winning, this will allow the researcher to mail the gift card via certified mail. After the gift cards have been received, all identifying information will be erased. Additionally, any data obtained will only be viewed by the researcher named above. This data will in no way be connected to the answers you provide on the survey.
The survey is approximated to take about 60 minutes to complete, although many have taken it in less time. Please answer each question carefully to get the most accurate results. Randomly answering will disqualify you from the gift card drawing. However, you may choose to not respond to any questions. You may also withdraw from participating at any time.
