What is considered exempt research

What is considered exempt research?

 Research conducted in established or commonly accepted educational settings, involving normal educational practices, such as: research on regular and special education instructional strategies, or research on the effectiveness of or the comparison among instructional techniques, curricula, or classroom management methods.


 Research involving the use of educational tests (cognitive, diagnostic, aptitude, achievement), survey procedures (paper or web-based questionnaires, reading of words and phrases [examples included with application], oral description of pictures [examples need to be included with application], retellings of stories or other facts of common knowledge [e.g., Little Red Riding Hood], interview procedures (guided interviews [questionnaire or list of topics included with application]; guided interactions between two or more speakers, free conversations [with the subjects’ stated right to have the entirety or any part of their conversation be excluded]), or observation of public behavior (e.g., recordings from publicly-broadcasted internet, radio, and television, publicly available corpora, etc.), unless:

  • information obtained is recorded in such a manner that human subjects can be identified, directly or through identifiers linked to the subjects; and

  • any disclosure of the human subjects' responses outside the research could reasonably place the subjects at risk of criminal or civil liability or be damaging to the subjects' financial standing, employability, or reputation.
