     Research Assistant/Transcriber Confidentiality Agreement
     This study is being undertaken by Christie Schultz for the University of Alberta Creative Services unit of
     the Office of External Relations. The purpose of the project is to assess the usability of the new interface
     for the University website for its target users; in other words, assessing how easy or difficult it is for
     people to use the new version of the University of Alberta homepage. Data from this research may be
     used to make improvements. A final report on the research may be presented to the University
     community, and the results may be written up for publication or conference presentations.
