A request for participation in an online parenting study

Hello Family Education community,

I come to you with a humble request.

I am a student in the Combined School-Clinical Child Psychology program at Yeshiva University, and I am conducting a study looking at ways to help parents better understand children’s psychoeducational test reports. Having parents understand the test results from their child’s evaluations is critically important in order for parents to understand their child’s strengths and weaknesses and to serve as effective advocates for their children. I believe this topic is highly relevant to parents on this forum, and I hope you choose to participate in the study.

If you're interested in participating, please comment.

You will be asked to read a brief psychoeducational test report and then answer some questions about it. In addition, a brief demographics questionnaire is included. In total, participation in the study should not take more than 30 minutes. Afterward, you will be given the option to submit your email address in order to enter a raffle for one of two $25 Barnes & Noble gift cards, as a thank you for participating.

Participating in this study is completely voluntary, and you may withdraw at any time. There are no known or anticipated risks to participation, nor is there any cost for participation. No personally identifiable information will be collected in this study, and every effort will be made to maintain the confidentiality of your study records. If you are interested, you may request a copy of the results of this study be emailed to you after the study is completed.

If you have any questions about the study or participation therein, please comment.

Thank you for your time, and I sincerely hope you choose to participate.

Daniil Korovikov, M.S.

I am a certified teacher and a parent. I would like to participate in your survey. Please let me know if you get enough reponses needed to make conclusions from the reults. I believe in supporting educational/cognitive/pschological research. Let me help by doing the survey. Sincerely, Margo

Hi mgentile. I'm really glad to hear you're interested in participating. I wasn't able to find a private message section, so I will reply here and hope you see it. At the end of the study there is a section for additional comments; as someone with experience on both the parent and teacher end of things, I would greatly appreciate any insight or comments you have on this topic. I will be sure to send you the results when they are ready. I'm unable to enter URLs in the replies section, so I'm not sure what to do here. I hate to side-step the rules by providing a broken-apart URL, but I'm not sure how else to get you the information: survey.websurveycreator.co m/s.aspx?s=20cfbf9a-e12b-4d9e-a6c5-ad2b20c3a8e0 If you delete the space in ".co m", the URL should work. Thanks again.
