Participant Pool for Students

A central characteristic of scientific knowledge is that it is based on systematic observations in empirical research studies. This is also true for management/organizational knowledge about human behaviour, which is based on observations from research studies in natural settings and laboratories. To familiarize students with the methods of scientific research studies in management and to provide first-hand experiences with the procedures presented in lectures, MOS 1021 includes a mandatory research experience component. This research experience component requires students to earn three research credits. 

A research credit can be earned by doing either of the following:

  • Participate in one (1) research session that will take no longer than one hour to complete.
  • Complete an article review by reading and answering a series of questions about one (1) research article chosen from a selection available online at the DAN Management website.

Students who fail to earn three credits by 4:00pm on the last day of classes in the term will have 2% deducted from their final grades for each credit that they fail to earn (for a maximum possible deduction of 6% from their final grade).

Students who sign up for a study but fail to attend the study at the required time on two occasions will have no further opportunity to participate in a research study. Instead, the students must complete the article review option or receive a deduction to their grade (2% per credit missed). 

Students who disagree with or wish to appeal their research participation grade will have until the date of their final exam in MOS 1021A/B to do so. No revisions to the research participation grade will be made after this date.

Students who do not wish to participate in a research study may earn a research credit by reading and completing a review of one (1) research article per credit from a selection of articles available on Student Instructions for Research . Further instructions about the article review option can also be found on this website.
