Per the IRB, faculty members who offer extra credit in their classes for their students’ participation in research have an obligation to clearly state the following in their syllabi:
- Students need to be told that research participation is voluntary and that there is another option by which to accrue the same amount of extra credit.
- The extra credit option needs to be of equal or lesser time and difficulty.
- Students need to be told clearly what the conversion factor is in going from hours of research participation to points of credit in the class.
- Provide students this weblink (http://www.hsl.socsci.uci.edu/student.php) where they can get full instructions on how to sign up as a participant.
