Responsible conduct of research courses are widely taught, but little is known about the purposes or effectiveness of such courses. To assess the purposes of these courses, students were surveyed about their perspectives after recent completion of one of eleven different research ethics courses at ten different institutions. Participants received a voluntary, anonymous survey from their instructors at the completion of the course. Responses were received from 268 participants. Over 75% of the respondents specifically noted that courses were useful in preparing them to recognize, avoid, and respond to research misconduct. The two principal findings of this multi-institutional study are that respondents reported: (1) a wide variety of positive outcomes for research ethics courses, but that (2) the impact on knowledge was greater than that for changes in skills or attitudes.
