I have had a couple huge days in a row and the one thing I have not done is write about it, so alas here we are.

First, lets back up to Wednesday where I finished my IRB online training. So flipping awesome! I still have a good bit of work to do to prepare the materials I need to submit for the IRB, but the fact that the online training is done is so super awesome!
Here is what I still have left to do:
Online IRB Application (This information below was taken directly from the ASU IRB Application which can be found online at https://researchintegrity.asu.edu/humans)
Background and Objectives (Provide the scientific or scholarly background for, rationale for, and significance of the research based on the existing literature and how will it add to existing knowledge.)
Data Use (Describe how the data will be used.)
Inclusion and Exclusion Criteria (Describe the criteria that define who will be included or excluded in your final study sample. If you are conducting data analysis only describe what is included in the dataset you propose to use.)
Number of Participants (Indicate the total number of participants to be recruited and enrolled)
Identify Recruitment Methods
Procedures Involved (Describe all research procedures being performed, who will facilitate the procedures, and when they will be performed.)
Identify Compensation or Credit
Risk to Participants (List the reasonably foreseeable risks, discomforts, or inconveniences related to participation in the research. Consider physical, psychological, social, legal, and economic risks.)
Potential Benefits to Participants (Realistically describe the potential benefits that individual participants may experience from taking part in the research. Indicate if there is no direct benefit. Do not include benefits to society or others.)
Privacy and Confidentiality (Describe the steps that will be taken to protect subjects’ privacy interests. “Privacy interest” refers to a person’s desire to place limits on with whom they interact or to whom they provide personal information.)
Consent Process (Describe the process and procedures process you will use to obtain consent.)
Examples of Consent Forms
Examples of Confidentiality Agreement
Examples of Recruitment Script
Examples of Study Measures (e.g. surveys, questionnaires, interview questions, instruments, etc.).
And then I have to hope that it all gets approved with minimal revisions. So as you can see, I still have a ways to go, but at least to online training is done ;)

Now for yesterday, I totally flipping scored again at the ASU Surplus Auction. At the auction I scored:
Below is a really quick video of my auction lot spread out on a table.
Below is a download of the video I posted on my snapchat. If you watch the video you will see where I tested several of the projectors. And as of yesterday, I thought only 6 of the 10 worked; as of today, I now know that 8 work great, the 9th needs a new lamp, and the 10th needs a new lamp and a new filter. In other words, they all freakin work!!!
Not sure yet how these items will be integrated into my project. Stay tuned and we will figure it out together!!
