- Take three
closed book, non-cumulative in-class exams.
You will be asked to identify terms and solve brief research problems
discussed in lecture and the textbook.
- Turn in
three sets of "three
questions". Two sets of questions should be about a different
textbook chapter. One set of questions should be about the research
paper that you plan to review for the final paper.
- Complete three course projects: 1) develop and pilot test an attitude scale, 2) analyze the content of television programs and 3) design an experiment. For each project, you will be asked to write a two to three page summary of your experience. The paper should include a precise description of the methods you used, present the information that you collect and offer your interpretation of the information. All the course projects will be more fully described in separate handouts. Co-authored papers will not be accepted.
