Accomplishments

Drs. Lauren Brewer, Kyle Conlon

Assistant professors of psychology

Conlon and Brewer recently had their article, "Uninformed Consent? The Effect of Participant Characteristics and Delivery Format on Informed Consent," accepted for publication in Ethics and Behavior.

Across three studies, results indicated that participants failed to adequately read both digital and paper consent forms, calling into question whether participants are truly informed when providing consent.

The paper was co-authored with three former graduate students of SFA's general psychology master's program: Kyle Ripley, currently pursuing his doctoral degree in quantitative psychology at the University of Missouri; Margaret Hance, currently pursuing her doctoral degree in social psychology at East Tennessee State University; and Stacey Kerr, the recipient of the 2017 Marilyn Odom Outstanding Graduate Student Award.
