Some surveys may be considered human subject research and require Institutional Review Board approval prior to the initiation of the survey. In general, if your survey data is only being collected for a class project, quality improvement project, departmental evaluation, or social use, IRB approval may not be needed. However, if this survey is for a research project involving (1) a systematic investigation with (2) the goal of creating generalizable knowledge (i.e. being able to apply the data to a broader population and plan to publish or present the findings), IRB approval may be required. Please contact the UWM IRB (www.irb.uwm.edu) for specific information.
Use of the survey instrument service is subject to the same policies and guidelines for the use of UWM computing resources as other services on campus. Please refer to the UWM Computing Policy and Guidelines for more information.
