Project Title:Examining School Psychologists' Decision Making and Subsequent Recommendations for Students with a Prior Early Childhood Diagnosis of Malignant Brain Tumor
Dear School Psychologist,
We writing to ask for your participation in the dissertation research study below. The study is approved by the University of Florida’s Institutional Review Board (# IRB202201439).
Given the limited amount of current literature specific to the field of school psychology concerning chronic health conditions; the purpose of this dissertation study is to better understand school psychologists’ decision-making for students who previously received medical treatment due to a chronic medical diagnosis of a pediatric brain tumor.
If you choose to participate, you will be asked to review a vignette describing hypothetical student evaluation data. Please consider spending approximately 20 minutes to complete the study. Your participation will be anonymous.
Each 10th participant will earn a $20.00 gift card.
