Fall 2008 Research Participation Program (RPP) Guidelines for Students (The Blue Sheet) UC Berkeley is known worldwide for its outstanding research – and the Department of Psychology adds to that reputation with a long history of important, breakthrough work. The Research Participation Program (RPP) gives undergraduate students a chance to participate in some of this research. As a participant in RPP surveys and experiments, you help the department’s graduate student and faculty researchers answer important questions about psychology. Your participation offers you a chance to learn more about research methods and the latest topics and to meet faculty and graduate student researchers. To encourage participation in the RPP, your psychology course is allowing you to receive research participation credit as part of your grade. Participation in the RPP involves participating in a certain number of experiments throughout the semester It is your choice to volunteer, or not, for the program. Students in the RPP program courses who choose to not volunteer should speak with their instructor or GSI about an alternative task. We hope, however, that you will choose to participate. This information explains the program in further detail. If you do participate, keep this information as a reference about the program’s policies and your role in it. You must be at least 18 years old to participate in the RPP. If you are under 18, please notify your instructor or GSI and obtain an alternative task. NOTE: In addition to RPP experiments, fliers are occasionally posted in Tolman Hall for paid research studies. You cannot earn RPP credit for participating in paid experiments. On-line Prescreening Survey The following On-Line Prescreening Survey is an easy way to earn ONE research credit. It consists of questionnaires that some researchers use to determine which students are eligible for participating in certain studies. For example, some researchers may only need students who are youngest children. So in addition to earning you an easy credit, the Prescreening Survey also may make you eligible for more studies than you otherwise would be. Prescreening surveys will be completed on-line during the first week of class, and the link can be found on the psychology department’s website: http://psychology.berkeley.edu/rpp/ If you are taking more than one psychology course with RPP requirements, you may only complete the Prescreening Survey ONCE and receive credit for one course . After submitting your Prescreening Survey, please set up an account online at www.experimetrix.com/berkeley
