Routine program evaluation does not require IRB approval, as long as the information gathered is used to make improvements to a program, or to otherwise specifically evaluate only the program under review. For example, parents and children who participate in an outreach program might be asked to complete a questionnaire about their experience participating in the program.
Prior IRB approval is required for data that are designed to develop (i.e., form the basis for a future contribution), contribute to or result in generalizable knowledge, such as information that is universally or widely applicable and that might, for example, appear in a peer-reviewed publication, thesis, or dissertation.
