Researchers using the Subject Pool must follow a variety of procedures to aid in the
efforts to conduct ethical research. The first step a researcher must take is to become
familiar with these procedures. At the beginning of the fall semester a subject pool
meeting is held to explain these procedures. All researchers coming into contact with
the Subject Pool must attend this meeting. Attendance at this meeting makes you eligible
to use the Subject Pool for one year. Anyone unable to attend this meeting will have
the opportunity to check out a video from the Reserve desk at the library.
Occasionally some researchers are looking for participants to meet certain criteria.
Screening week is designed to help those researchers do just that. During the first
week of classes, researchers have the opportunity to pass out screening measures to
all 1200 students to fill out.
