The development of a four-tier test to evaluate research integrity training
The article "The development of a four-tier test to evaluate research integrity training" conducted by the Path2Integrity coordinator Prof. Julia Priess-Buchheit (University of Applied Sciences Coburg, Coburg, Germany) and project partners Linda Zollitsch and Nicolaus Wilder from the University of Kiel, Kiel, Germany, has been published in the Open Research Europe platform.
Scheme of development of the P2I questionnaire adapted with permission of The Royal Society of Chemistry, from Chandrasegaran, Treagust, and Mocerino (2007); permission conveyed through Copyright Clearance Center, Inc.
The method article describes the Path2Integrity questionnaire, which evaluates the research integrity (RI) and responsible conduct of research (RCR) training success and the survey results. The reasoning behind this is that in recent decades, research integrity (RI) and responsible conduct of research (RCR) have developed into a fundamental cross-cutting issue in research and the training of (future) researchers. Nevertheless, there is still no substantial evidence to show what works and what does not work in teaching and learning RI/RCR. The Pаth2Integrity questionnaire aims to assess the learning successes of secondary school students older than 16 up to early career researchers.
Furthermore, the article has been linked to the Path2Integrity open-access collection in the Research Ideas and Outcomes (RIO) Journal.
