Guiding Principles for Assessment Best Practices for Assessment
If you are conducting research and it involves human subjects, consult IRB regulations to determine if IRB approval is necessary.
An Institutional Review Board (IRB) oversees research conducted on human subjects to ensure the rights, welfare, and safety of the individuals who enroll in the study are protected. At Vanderbilt, there are four IRB Committees that review health science and social/behavioral research.
