Interactions with children

Review the following question and select the best option by answering either "Yes" or "No" as it applies to your new study submission. Your selections on each proceeding page will help identify the most likely level of review.

Will you be interacting with children as a part of the study procedure?

Interactions include both face-to-face interactions such as interviews, and indirect interactions such as having an instructor present children with a test or questionnaire to complete.  Observation of public behavior of children is NOT an interaction so long as the researcher is not engaging with the children or manipulating the children’s environment.
