1 Final Project Description and Grading Criteria The purpose of the final project in this course is for students to gain a deeper understanding of a theory or model within the field of I/O psychology. The theory or model may be any that a student is particularly interested in; as long as it is part of the pre-approved list included in this document or is formally approved by either the teacher’s assistant or the instructor of the course. Papers investigating theories or models not related to I/O psychology (as determined by the above criteria) will have 50% deducted off the final grade of the paper. Students are required to complete ONE of the project possibilities described below. Though I have suggested that certain students may wish to pursue one project or another based on their future plans, students are free to choose whichever project they feel best fits with their interests and abilities. Both of the projects will have similar grading criteria and the difficulty level will be the same for both projects. Both projects have the same page length requirement: 5 pages minimum and 7 pages maximum. Papers less than 5 or greater than 7 pages in length will have 50% deducted off the final grade of the paper. The choice of which project you will complete and what theory or model you will investigate must be made by March 5, 2009. These choices may not be altered unless you meet with Liz or Matt to discuss the reasons for changing. The final project is due Tuesday, April 28 at the beginning of class. Late papers will not be accepted. P r o j e c t 1 : R e s e a r c h R e p o r t Intended for students interested in a career in psychology or a related discipline Students completing this project will write a report describing a theory or model within I/O psychology and summarizing a sample of research on that theory or model. Project 2: Application Report Intended for students interested in applying I/O to their future career in the workplace Students completing this project will write a report describing a theory or model within I/O psychology and applying the theory or model to a situation from their own past or present work life or the past or present work life of someone they know.

2 Both projects will have the same first component: description of a theory or model. To complete this part of the project, you must learn about the theory or model to the extent that you understand and can explain the major components of the theory or model (constructs, relationships, etc.). Throughout the paper you are NOT allowed to use any direct quotes from other sources, so this part must be entirely in your own words. Where to look: In order to learn about the theory or model you have chosen, you need to read scholarly works (journal articles and books) about it. The best sources are peer-reviewed journal articles, because these have passed through a rigorous review process. More recent and more “major” journal articles are more likely
