Below are opportunities to participate in research.  TPA is not endorsing these research projects, but has agreed to post information to our website when contacted with a request. 


Dear Provider,


I am a graduate student in the Department of Clinical Psychology at Southern Illinois University Carbondale conducting a study on factors related to treatment choices among child mental health professionals who practice in rural communities. 


The purpose of the enclosed survey is to explore the clinician and agency/practice factors that influence treatment decisions and the implementation of new therapy approaches. You were selected to participate in this study because of your affiliation with the Tennessee Psychological Association. This study is open for clinicians who have provided therapy services to at least one child in the past six months and who currently practice in a rural area. The survey is completely anonymous and will take around 25-30 minutes to complete. Only the people directly involved with this project will have access to the surveys. Completion and return of this survey indicate voluntary consent to participate in this study.

If you know of other service providers in your area or have colleagues who may be interested in participating, please feel free to forward the survey link to them. The more people who complete this study, the more information we will know about this important issue!

Consent Form


You are being asked to participate in a study to examine a new evaluative tool for assessing the quality

of cross-cultural test adaptations. This research is being conducted by Deborah Duke, M.S. at St.

John’s University.


If you agree to be in this study, you will be asked to complete a demographic background survey and a

professional background survey following completion of this consent form. You will then be presented

with a vignette describing a fictionalized adaptation study. You will use the evaluation tool provided to

rate this vignette’s quality on several criteria. The entire process should take approximately 45

minutes. Additionally, a random subsample of participants who choose to share their email address at

the end of the survey will be emailed 3-6 weeks after their initial completion of the study and will be

asked to complete their evaluation a second time. This will take an additional 45 minutes.


There are no known risks for participation in this study. If participation makes you uncomfortable,

please contact the researchers or the site coordinator for further assistance. Participants in this study

will directly benefit through entry into a lottery for a $200 Amazon gift card. Participants who are

selected to complete the study again at a later date will be entered into a second lottery for a $100 gift

card. Additionally, this research may help the investigator determine methods for improving test

adaptation practices both locally and abroad.


Several steps will be taken to ensure the confidentiality of your responses. After the consent form is

completed, you will be asked to generate a 4-digit identification code. You will be asked to re-enter

this code the end of the survey with your email address. Your email address will only be used to allow

you to enter the lottery and be contacted for the follow-up study. This code will be disassociated with

the rest of your responses, aside from a label indicating which version of the vignette you completed.

No identifying information will be requested on the background surveys or review forms. The record

of your responses will be held in strictest confidence and only the research staff working on the

projects will have access to the digital files containing your reviews. Electronic records will be kept

securely online through Qualtrics. They will be stored in a password-protected file if downloaded. If

Qualtrics provides the researchers with your IP address or email address, this information will be

deleted from the data files used to analyze the results.


Participation in this study is voluntary. You may refuse to participate or withdraw at any time without

penalty. You have the right to skip any questions that you prefer not to answer. If there is anything

about the study or about your participation that is unclear or that you do not understand, and if you

have questions or wish to report a research-related problem, you may contact Deborah Duke, M.S. at If you would like to speak with Ms. Duke’s dissertation advisor, please

contact Mark Terjesen, Ph.D. at


For questions about your rights as a research participant, you may contact the University’s Human

Subjects Review Board, 718-990-1440.



Dear colleague,

My name is Deborah Duke and I am a graduate student in the school psychology doctoral

program at St. John’s University. I am writing to invite you to participate in my

dissertation study, which focuses on international assessment practices in psychology.


The purpose of this study is to develop a new evaluative tool that can be used by

psychologists to assess the quality of the adapted tests and scales that they may be using

in practice. Participation in this study will involve completing an online survey in which

this tool is applied to evaluate a fictionalized measure. Participants will also be asked to

complete a demographic and professional background questionnaire. It is anticipated that

participation will take approximately 45 minutes.


I am looking to recruit psychologists and psychology graduate students from all

specializations, including school, counseling, and clinical backgrounds, who would be

interested in taking part in this study.


I would greatly appreciate if you would take the time to participate in this opportunity.

Your assistance with this study will be an asset to the improvement of psychological test

adaptation practices both locally and abroad.


The study will be administered online through the following link:


If you would like to participate in the study, please follow the link and complete all of the

presented questionnaires, consent forms, and vignette evaluations. Participants will be

entered in a lottery to win a $200 Amazon gift card.


I am happy to review all aspects of participation with you and answer any questions you

may have to assist you in making your decision. If you would like to speak with me,

please e-mail Deborah Duke, M.S., at


Thank you very much for your time and consideration!
