  1. Scenario 2 – Question 16. A total of 10 interviews provided responses. However not all respondents considered themselves sufficiently expert to determine the importance of inclusion of specific items, hence the denominator of the table varies by item between 7 and 10. Respondents included university and IRB legal counsels, IRB directors, Office of Research representatives, and Privacy and Compliance officers. Data was aggregated with interview statement as the unit of analysis.
