K. (2009). Cognition: Theory and Applications (8th Edition) Francis& Neath, CogLab 2.0 (book and CD with simulated classic experiments). These texts are available bundled together at the campus bookstore. The text is also on reserve at the library; there are copies of CogLab in the Resource Room (Psy B 120). Required activities: 1. LECTURES : Everyone is expected to attend lectures . Although lecture slides will be available on Blackboard, they often cover material not in the text. You will be tested on both text and lectures. 2. EXAMS : Material from lectures and text will be tested in 2 midterms and 1 final; midterms will be cumulative but will focus most heavily on recent material. You are expected to take both midterm exams, although the lower midterm will be dropped. You MUST take the final exam in order to complete (pass) the course . There will be no make-up exams , except where required in compliance with the University’s official policy; if you believe you have a valid excuse, talk to us before the exam or else your excuse may be deemed unacceptable. Check the schedule on the last page now to ensure you have no conflicts that would prevent you from participating fully in the course. 3. QUIZZES : Occasional unscheduled quizzes will be given during lectures (on current or recent material). These provide chances to earn extra credit points (and have no negative impact on your grade); 3 quiz points are worth 1 “real” point, to be added to your final grade. Quizzes also let us know how well you understand the material. There will be no make-up quizzes. 4. COGLAB—Participate in classic studies: You are required to complete 9 simulated classic experiments in CogLab (one for each major topic). You'll be able to choose from a set of relevant experiments. Each simulated experiment takes up to one hour. A report of your data from the experiment, along with your brief interpretation of the data , must be submitted to BlackBoard (no email submissions ) before the start of class on the day designated in the syllabus. Each CogLab is worth 10 points. No credit is given for labs on the wrong topic. You will receive full credit
