Ma'am, the ethical considerations in research provide the basis of the integrity of the researchers and their work.
So what do you think is the connection between ethics and data collection?
Hello class! Today we have a new lesson to discuss entitled Guidelines and Ethics of Data Collection.
So we know that data collection is the systematic process of collecting data from the target respondent to get the answer to the needed question. And ethics is the moral principle that affects how people make decisions and judgments. It is usually associated with what is right or wrong.
Yes, correct! Ethics plays a significant part as it serves as the guiding principles of the researchers.
Ma'am, one of the ethical considerations is informed consent. It also involves informing your participants that they have the right to choose freely, whether or not to participate as research subjects. You must also explain the purpose of the study, the duration of data collection, the process of obtaining data from them, as well as the benefits and the risks of the study.
Can anyone in the class give one ethical consideration. And, give a brief explanation about that.
Ma'am, the next one is Confidentiality. Confidentiality denotes that all identifiable information shared by the participants during the data collection process should not be disclosed without permission.
Ma'am, the next one is Privacy. To safeguard the privacy of your research participants means that information about where they live or where they work should not be disclosed.
Good Job everyone, all the given answer is correct.
And the last one is Anonymity. Keeping your participants anonymous or unknown can prevent them from suffering from shame, harm, or any circumstance that may put their lives in danger.
