Learning Goal: I’m working on a psychology question and need guidance to help me learn.Instructions: Before research can begin, it needs approval from an Institutional Review Board (IRB), or a committee of researchers and community members who determine whether the proposed study safeguards both the research participants and the researchers. For human research, the IRB relies on proposals from researchers that include an informed consent form, debriefing statements, study materials, and information about the population to be studied.Your task is to imagine you are a member of an IRB and you received the proposals below. After reading each proposal, answer the questions that follow. Proposal 1The suggestibility of eyewitnesses is well documented in psychology, especially with children. For example, the 1983 investigation into alleged child sexual abuse at the McMartin Preschool in Manhattan Beach, California, involved claims of up to 360 children suffering sexual abuse (and even witnessing satanic rituals!), though court witnesses questioned the validity of the claims, arguing that interrogations of the children during the investigation relied on coercive, improper, and distorted questions, leading the children to incorporate misinformation into their memories. Researchers are now interested in seeing how child participants respond to a misinformation scenario in which a revered public servant (a fireman) allegedly slapped a child. Procedure: Researchers are seeking IRB approval for a study in which 6- to 10-year-old children view a 4-minute videotape in which a firefighter tells a child not to play with the fireman’s hat. After gentle (but suggestive) questioning by a police “interrogator” in the video, the child actor incorrectly claims that the fireman slapped him when in fact this event never occurred—the fireman simply asked the child to not play with the hat. In an attempt to test a theory-based hypothesis for why the child actor in the video misremembered the fireman slapping him, the researchers want to ask new child participants (who will view the video) why the child actor made the incorrect statement. 1.As an IRB member, what else would you like to know about the study before accepting it or rejecting it?(worth 5 points)2.Do you think this study would really pass an IRB board? Please explain your response.(worth 5 points)
