TDG 2016-2017 project: An adaptive online quiz system to enhance learning of research ethics among students completing honors projects

Research output: Other contributionTDG

Abstract

Conducting research in an ethical manner is a core responsibility of a researcher. At EdUHK, many honours projects are completed each year, most of which involve human subject testing and therefore require ethics clearance. However, resources for educating students on the ethics application process had been insufficient. The errors that are frequently found in student ethics applications stem from a lack of understanding on the rationales behind the ethical questions asked. To increase awareness of research ethics, and to reduce the errors made by student ethics applications, I created an Online Quiz system for student investigators to thoroughly learn about ethical conduct, and also the practical aspects of the ethical review process. The system was piloted among students in the Department of Psychology and was a success. It is now ready for use by students from all other departments.
