LAW AND PSYCHOLOGY Psychology 377; fall 2009 Instructor Findley Midterm Exam, Form A Instructions: Put your full name (last name first), your student ID number and the particular Form letter (Form A or Form B) that appears on your exam. For each question, one of the four answers is correct. Even if you have a doubt, select the BEST of the four answers. Each question is worth 2 points, so you have an opportunity to earn 50 points toward your final grade. Place your answers on both the Scantron sheet and the examination. Note that stray marks, poor erasures of changed answers, using pen, and multiple answers to the same question, on your Scantron sheet will cause you to lose points during machine grading, and will not be changed on appeal !
