These Web-based, self-paced tutorials are designed to meet the Federal requirement that researchers using human subjects demonstrate the completion of education in the protection of human research participants. (Indiana University has published an Important Notice explaining the requirement and IU's response.)

The tutorials are in PDF format and require Adobe's free Acrobat Reader (available at; for IU faculty, staff, and students, it is also available at under "Document Readers").


This self-administered test is designed to complement the above tutorials.


This survey is your chance to help us improve the tutorials and test. Your feedback will be anonymous and much appreciated.
