Preparing IRB & begin to prepare pilot research
Development opportunities for the intern:
Will provide the intern the opportunity to complete an IRB, and further refine research approach.
Will provide experience in running a pilot study, and seeing the value of this approach. Additionally, the pilot preparation will aid in the further refinement of the research methods, and the test instruments (e.g., survey, interview questions, follow up questions, etc.). Finally, the pilot will help test the methodology and provide useful information pointing to needed adjustments prior to recruiting participants for the formal study.
IRB submitted and waiting for any stipulations to address. Will provide feedback for any changes in research design that would be needed.
