1. A prisoner you are interviewing tells you about a potential breakout at the prison that night. What do you do?
2. A researcher on your team copies sentences from another study and incorporates them into the final written report for your project. What do you do?
3. A student collects data for her project from several individuals she has interviewed I families in your city. After the fourth interview, she tells you that she has not received approval for the project from the Institutional Review Board. What do you do?
