Informed Consent

The purpose of the Informed Consent document is to offer your participants the opportunity to make an informed decision about whether or not they would like to participate in your research project.  The Informed Consent document should be written at the 9th grade level and should be directed towards the participant.  This model of an Informed Consent Sample is an example to be used for reference only and should be modified to meet your specific research project needs.  The template for the Informed Consent document can be found in the Application Packet.
