Qualtrics Consent Letter Format Review

The Qualtrics Consent Letter Review is an asynchronous service for researchers who would like assistance with adding the consent letter to their Qualtrics survey/questionnaire. This is not a review of your survey questions or your IRB application and contents; this service only addresses formatting issues of the consent letter in Qualtrics.

Please note that we are only able to format the consent letter for adult participants.

Am I eligible for this service?

To be eligible for this service you must do the following:

If any of these criteria are not met, your scheduled appointment will be cancelled and you will be notified VIA email.

How does Qualtrics Consent Letter Review work?

You will register below. An IRB member will review the formatting of the consent letter without you present and send you written feedback. You will receive feedback within 48 hours of the time you register for. 

If you register for Qualtrics Consent Letter Review, you will not be scheduled to meet or talk with an IRB member in real-time.

Please note that the person who reviews your documents will not be the person who later reviews your application or gives you IRB approval. You may still receive additional feedback after you submit your application.
