Disclaimer/ Consent


I am conducting an electronic survey about vocal cool-downs. This research project is in partial fulfillment of the requirements for my Master’s Degree in Communication Disorders.

You must be 18 years or older to complete this survey. Your participation is completely voluntary, and involves spending five to ten minutes to complete this survey. All of your responses will be kept completely confidential, because your identity will in no way be linked to your responses. General reports of our findings may be published and are available upon request. Before you submit your final responses, you can stop or request that your data not be included in our analysis. Completion of the survey is considered your consent to participate.  

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at kv2357@truman.edu or 217-242-5551 or my thesis advisor, Dr. Julia Edgar (jedgar@truman.edu or 660-785-4255). If you have any questions about your rights as a participant, please contact the Truman State University Institutional Review Board Administrator, Kristian McKim at 660-785-7245 or by email at irb@truman.edu.


Thank you for your time and cooperation.
