Teacher Evaluation of TimelineBuilder Consent Form

Principal Investigator: Mark Guzdial, Professor, University of Michigan

You are invited to participate in a research study that aims to evaluate a tool for use in timeline creation activities in K-12 social studies classrooms.

Our research study will utilize pre and post surveys, along with 3 guided activities to complete. Additionally, there is the option to be invited to a focus group. The focus group will last up to 60 minutes, be conducted over University of Michigan Zoom, and will be recorded. We may also ask to observe your use of the tool by sharing your screen. You may participate in as many of these study segments as you wish.  

We realize that your time is valuable and your opinions are important to us. As a token of our appreciation, you will receive a $20 gift card for participating in the pre and post surveys, and a $30 gift card for each focus group you choose to participate in.

Participating in this research study is completely voluntary. Even if you decide to participate now, you may change your mind and stop at any time. We will not keep your research data to use for other purposes. Your email and any other information that can directly identify you will be kept secure and stored separately from the research data collected as part of the project.

Information collected in this project may be shared with other researchers, but we will not share any information that could identify you.
