Course Requirements:

  • 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.
