Proposed Project: Evaluation of the effectiveness of an educational interactive video on research integrity— OMB No. 0990–New–Office of Research Integrity. Abstract: The Office of Research Integrity (ORI) proposes to conduct a nine-month evaluation study of the effectiveness of an educational interactive video on research integrity. The study seeks to answer two questions: (a) Objectively, is the Educational Interactive Video for Research Integrity (EIVRI) effective in achieving learning outcomes? (b) Subjectively, do learners and teachers perceive the video simulation as effective in helping them learn and teach research integrity? To answer the first question, a pretest-posttest control group experimental design is used to assess the effectiveness of individual learning of research integrity principles and concepts through the use of the video simulation. The video simulation instruction will be incorporated into an existing syllabus for a research integrity or research ethics course for the treatment group. The control group will use the existing syllabus with no video simulation in class. Participants will be graduate students enrolled in these ethics courses to learn and apply the responsible conduct of research at educational institutions. Participants will fill out a demographics form to discern if they have had prior training experience in research integrity. Those who have prior training experience and those who do not have prior training experience will be randomly assigned to either the treatment group or the control group. The random assignment will be done by picking the last digit of each individual’s social security number for E:\FR\FM\17JAN1.SGM 17JAN1

rate review has resulted in no rate changes when employees use their 
privately owned automobile (POA), their POA when Government owned 
automobiles (GOA) are authorized, their privately owned airplane, and/
or their privately owned motorcycle for official purposes. 
Historically, GSA has determined these rates by reviewing the annual 
standard automobile study conducted by the Internal Revenue Service, as 
well as conducting independent automobile, motorcycle, and aircraft 
studies, and/or by applying consumer price index data. GSA will
