The paper was designed by the use of a questionnaire that one needed to respond to to complete the questionnaire. The paper did not have any activity to be completed and depended on responding to the responses in the questionnaire.
4. What information did they require? Did they ask that you submit descriptive information such as gender, age, race, or ethnic group? Did they require identifying information such as name, address, etc.? Were you asked to disclose any revealing personal information (relationship information, emotions, personality, habits, etc.)? Did they describe how your privacy would be protected?
The paper requested information in regards to the subject which was people’s attitudes towards same sex performances. The questionnaire requested responses on descriptive information such as race, level of education, age, and sexual orientation among others. The questionnaire did not request information in regards to indentifying information. The questionnaire also did not also request for any information that can be considered to be revealing. The researchers also made a point to define the privacy that will be provided by the paper which it stated that no information provided by the survey could provided to other people. The study guaranteed confidentiality of any information presented.
5. Describe the actual experience of completing the research so that the reader can get a sense of the your experience and an understanding of the project. (You need not include your actual responses if you are uncomfortable doing so. However, I consider whatever you share with me to be confidential.)

Some of the information asked was whether I had acted to encourage same sex behaviors .

7. Did they provide a means to contact them if you had any questions or concerns about your experience in the research project? If someone became upset by the experience, did they offer support or a means of assistance?

The research provided means of contacting them in case one is upset or need confirmation of information. They had an email address and phone number in the information and they provided support as well as a provision of other assistance.
8. Would you recommend that other students participate in this particular research project? Explain?

I would recommend to other students to participate in other research that is similar to the set research as it will lead to provision of more information. A student who participate in the study will also provide more information needed to improve in research.
