REDCap Account Setup


REDCap accounts are maintained by RSIA. To request an account, send an email to Please note that RSIA can only provide system administration and user account administration services for REDCap. End-user support for project-specific issues must be obtained elsewhere, such as online resources or contacts between other campus users.

Gallaudet's REDCap installation may be accessed at There are also a number of videos linked on that page that explain more about the application and how to use it.

Moving Projects to Production

REDCap projects start out in Development status, which means any changes made to the project take effect immediately, so that you can quickly build, test, and revise your data collection instruments.

When you have finished creating your project and have tested it thoroughly, you may request that it be moved to Production status. A Request for Production Status form must be completed, signed, and submitted to RSIA along with a copy of the project's IRB approval letter. RSIA's REDCap administrator will then switch the project to Production status. Note that the process of moving a project to Production status will delete all existing test data in order to prepare the database for new data.

Once a project is moved to Production status, any further changes will need to be approved by RSIA's REDCap administrator. This is done to protect the integrity of already-collected data and prevent any possible data loss.
