Pick out what you believe to be the top 3 ethical problems with this study and explain what evidence from the article suggests there was a problem. Below is a fictional example:
1. Confidentiality- I believe that this study did not respect the confidentiality of the research participants. On page 37, the article states that “the results of the study were shared with the student’s major professors.” This violates research confidentiality. ****This is totally fictional, it is not from the article****
