Forms of Communication

   I am being asked to participate in a study called "Forms of Communication," conducted by Dr. Michele Dornisch and Dr. Nancy Frye, who are faculty members at C.W. Post, Long Island University. The purpose of this study is to examine how people tell others about themselves, using different forms of communication (e.g., cell phones, email). Additionally, I will be asked to provide some background information about myself. It will take approximately twenty minutes to complete this questionnaire.

My participation in this study is voluntary. I understand that I may leave blank any question that I feel uncomfortable answering, and that I may discontinue participation in the study at any time. My identity as a participant will remain anonymous. My name will not be included in any forms. I understand that individual participants' responses will not be reported and results will be reported only in the aggregate. Additionally, I understand that there are no anticipated risks to me for participating in this study.

This study has been approved by the Institutional Review Board of CW Post. If I have any questions regarding my rights as a subject, I may contact the Executive Secretary of the Institutional Review Board, Ms. Kathryn Rockett at (516) 299-2523. I may also contact Dr. Michele Dornisch at or Dr. Nancy Frye at
