Research Participation Verification Excel Sheet

It may take up to a week to see this document reflect your participation. You will use your confirmation number to verify participation. The Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA) guidelines do not allow for student names, EIDs, or other identifying information to be posted publicly in relation to research participation. Also keep in mind that it is vitally important for you to keep your own records of research participation in case of human or computer errors in distributing credit information to course instructors. Your confirmation number is important for both of these reasons. (It may take 7 - 10 days for your number to appear in the Google doc above after having completed a study.)
