Proposed Project: Evaluation of the effectiveness of an educational interactive video on research integrity—OMB No. 0990-New- Office of Research Integrity.

Abstract: The Office of Research Integrity (ORI) proposes to conduct a web based survey evaluation study of the effectiveness of an educational interactive video on research integrity. This study is web-based survey of research faculty/instructors, Research Integrity Officers (RIOs) and Research Administrators' perceptions of the effectiveness of this educational interactive video.

The study seeks to answer two questions: (a) Do researchers feel that this DVD would enhance their teaching of research integrity issues? (b) Will researchers use this DVD in future research methodology or ethics courses? Both hypotheses will be tested with a customer satisfaction type survey. A portion of the survey will collect data on respondent demographics to enable subanalyses on important subpopulations. Participants will be research instructors/faculty, Research Integrity Officers (RIOs) and Research Administrators) who have experience with the ORI educational programs or who may have experience with RCR programs in the near future. The information to be collected will be used by the ORI to help gain additional insight regarding the effectiveness of this educational interactive video, and determining whether it meets our customers' needs and ORI's mission and goals.
