Looking for Participants in a Study! [Sep. 7th, 2010|10:48 am]
Canada's Queer Community


Hello everybody!

I haven't posted in here before, and I'm in the States, but I was referred over this way by another LJ member :) I'm working on a study with my professor (Dr. James Kaufman) and we are trying to get more LGBTQ people involved. If you would like to take part, more information and the links to two surveys are below.

This one relates to college admissions (so ideally, we're looking for college students, 18 years old and over).

This one is more about gender.

These aren't 15 minute surveys, so if you do want to take part, please allow yourself enough time to complete the survey. Of course, it is completely optional and you can quit at any time, but complete surveys are preferred. Also, this is completely anonymous in that we cannot tie your information back to you, so if you're afraid of being identified, you don't need to be :)

As before, if you have any questions or concerns, or want to hear the outcome of the study upon completion, please email me at whita309@csusb.edu.

Thank you!

(*mods, hope this is okay!)

It's perfectly fine, but I would like more info. 1) In Canada, university and college are not synonymous. College is the same as community college down there. Are you looking for both, or just uni students? 2) Could you give us a bit more info on what they are about? Thanks :)

certainly! we're looking for both. anybody going beyond the required education. college and uni.

in terms of the info, i can only provide so much because we don't want participants to choose their answers based on what they think we expect them to say. the most i can say prior to their participating is that we're looking at differences between the LGBTQ community and the hetero community, but we need more LGBTQ participants. i'm sorry i can't say more about it up front. but, as participants take the survey, they will first see the informed consent, which will give them a little bit of an idea as to what we are looking at. at the end of the survey, they're debriefed and that's where we tell them what it was about. we just don't want the intention of the study to influence how people respond, because then it doesn't work right, lol
