EXAM 4     19 (Monday: 1:00-3:00)
Attendance: Mandatory (Don't miss the fun!)

Course Objectives: This survey course is designed to introduce
students to the broad field of Psychology. The study of psych-
ology provides us with a unique opportunity to observe, measure,
and appreciate the diversity of animal and human behaviors.

Syllabus: The syllabus is a general outline including some of the
material we will cover in this course. There will be additional
material and, on occasion, some chapter material may be
abbreviated or omitted.
Examination Policy: Exams will not be given before the designated
test period. Make-up exams will be given only when and if the
student provides a valid excuse. Vacation travel plans are not
considered valid excuses.
Examination Format: Bring two #2 lead pencils with erasers. Tests
usually include 50 multiple-choice questions. Test questions will
be drawn from lecture material, the textbook, and the student
study guide.
     Exam 1 (100 points)........................... 24%
     Exam 2 (100 points)........................... 24%
     Exam 3 (100 points)........................... 24%
     Exam 4 (100 points)........................... 24%
     ERLP   (8 points)............................. 4%
                                                   _____
                                        Total       100%

Your letter grade can be determined by adding percentage points
for exam scores, exam review points, and ERLP points. Typically
the ranges are: 90% and above= A; 85-89.9%= AB; 80-84.9% = B; 75-
79.9%= BC; 70-74.9% = C; 65-69.9%= CD; 60–64.9%= D; 59.9% or
less= F.

 “As required by federal law and UW-Green Bay policy for Individuals with
Disabilities, students with a documented disability who need
accommodations must contact the Disability Services Office at 465-2841
(Voice/TTY) or 465-2849. Reasonable accommodations can be made unless
they alter the essential components of the class. Contact the instructor and
Disability Services Coordinator in a timely manner to formulate alternative
arrangements.”

Experiential Research Learning Program (ERLP)
   • Research Credits: Students are required to earn 8 research credits. These credits can be
       earned by participating in research studies, attending research presentations, and/or
       reading and reviewing relevant research articles (1 research credit = .25 hours of research
       experience). All students enrolled in this course are enrolled in the Experiential Research
       Learning Program (ERLP) D2L page. This page will advertise opportunities for students
       to earn research credits, allow students to track the credits they have already earned, and
       has other useful links and information.
   • To earn research credits:
           o Log on to the ERLP D2L page often to see what opportunities are available.
           o Sign up or show up for the activity (some activities require students to sign up
               ahead of time and some studies do not).
           o Following the activity, students print their name on a credit sheet which is given
               to the ERLP coordinator who will assign credit.
   • Important:
           o Be sure to read the “Information for Students” document on the ERLP D2L page.
                This will give you other valuable information about the program.
           o Sign up for research activities as early in the term as possible (so you don’t miss
               the opportunity later).
           o You may only participate in research activities posted on the ERLP D2L page to
               receive credit for this class.
           o Students who sign up for a research activity but do not attend and do not cancel
               24 hours ahead of time will receive a penalty equal to the number of credits
               offered for the activity. These negative credits can be reversed by participation in
               additional ERLP events.
           o You may only participate in the same research study once unless notified in
               advance.
