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 ! You are responsible for ensuring that your Scantron sheet correctly corresponds to your answer choices. The best procedure for you to follow is to mark your answers on the exam which you will take home.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
