Thesis and Research Approval Form

RStats respects the teacher/student relationship inherent in the education and development of a student's thesis or research project. Students who seek help with graded projects need to ask their advisor to sign the RStats Thesis and Research Approval Form.  This is relevant for any sort of work which is being prepared for submission for a grade or completion of degree. For student research projects, theses, and course requirements we provide the same support as that for faculty member, but serve primarily in an advisory capacity. RStats does not do data entry, data analysis, assess data integrity, and/or write up the statistical interpretations for student graded projects. RStats will provide guidance in each of the aforementioned activities. For any graded research the student must obtain written or oral permission from the advisor/instructor of record before we consult. It is preferred that the advisor attend the first consult meeting with their respective student or discuss with the RStats consultant the expected involvement of RStats.
