Approval from the Director of Planning and Service Performance does different things to an approval from a Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC).
Approval from a HREC has assessed whether a collection complies with the National Statement on the Ethical Conduct of Human Research, which is external to ANU.
How long does the approval process take?
Applications must be submitted at least 20 working days prior to the anticipated survey date. Early consultation with PSP Institutional Research (IR) is recommended. The IR team can advise on how to answer questions the Director of Planning and Service Performance asks on the form, as well as offering suggestions based on their experience collecting data from ANU students. More time may be required if endorsements are needed from other stakeholders (e.g., CISO, Privacy Officer, Registrar, Access and Inclusion, and/or Advancement).
What are the privacy considerations when surveying ANU students?
