How to Use the PDF Version of “Protecting Human Research Participants”

This PDF copy of Protecting Human Research Participants is intended to allow registrants to review most course content in hard copy or off-line (without internet access). It is important to note that:

Tracking Your Completion and Testing Your Knowledge

A quiz will be given at the end of four of the sections. Once you finish reading a PDF section, you should return to the online tutorial. Your progress through this course is tracked electronically and is recorded when you COMPLETE a section. Because you are not reading the materials on the website, you will need to quickly click through each page of the course sections.

If you must leave the on-line course prior to completion, it is advised that you first complete the section in which you are working. Your progress is only recorded when you complete a section and see a check mark next to that section on the Main Menu page. If you do not see a check mark at the Main Menu after completing a section, please complete the Technical Support Form.

The quizzes are located at the end of each section (except for Introduction, History and Conclusions). After submitting each quiz, it will be scored. Once you have completed the quiz with a satisfactory score, a check mark will appear next to the score on the Main Menu page. If you score less than the required number of questions correctly, the section must be reviewed and the quiz retaken until a satisfactory score has been attained. You may retake the quiz only after clicking through each page of the on-line section.

Once you have successfully completed the course, including the quizzes, a link will appear on the Main Menu allowing access to your Certificate of Completion. This certificate may be accessed and printed at any time. To access your certificate, log in to the course and a link will be accessible from the Main Menu.
