[Academic] Assessing the Influence of Medical Masks on Eyewitness Memory: A Study on Police Investigation Protocols (18+)


Recommended Posts

Dear UKPoliceOnline ,

We cordially invite you to take part in our psychology 401 capstone class as we embark on a distinctive analysis of eyewitness memory. Our study, "Assessing the Influence of Medical Masks on Eyewitness Memory: A Study on Police Investigation Protocols," is designed to inspect if medical masks can have an effect on the reliability of memories gathered during police lineups. This study has not been submitted for approval by the University of Michigan Institutional Review Board Health Sciences and Behavioral Sciences.  All data collected will be destroyed following the completion of the course and relevant assignments. Due to the fact that the study is open to everyone 18 and over, we want to extend our study to the UKPoliceOnline community since the forum is open to research in academic settings. 

Participation in this study is completely voluntary. Even if you decide to participate now, you may change your mind and stop at any time. Rest assured that all data collected will be treated with the utmost confidentiality and used only for academic purposes. To ensure that your privacy remains intact, no Personally Identifiable information (PII) will be kept in relation to this study. Data collected from the research participants is aggregated and only members of the investigation team have access to it; furthermore, all data is stored on a secure server. 

We estimate that this survey will take approximately 10 minutes to finish. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide any compensation for your participation in the study. All data must be fully collected no later than 11:59 pm Eastern Time on April 8th, 2023.
