Unformatted text preview: If necessary, grades
will be curved up, but they will not be curved down. In other words, you are certain to get at least the
grade corresponding to the points listed below.
D..D+ Plus (+) grades will only be assigned for the top two percentage points in any grade range (e.g., B+ =
88-89), and minus (-) grades for the bottom two percentage points (e.g., A- = 90-91). Extra Credit:
You have the opportunity to earn up to 2 extra credit percentage points by participating in an
experiment through the Psychology Department Subject Pool. By participating in experiments, you
will have the opportunity to contribute to on-going research at UCLA while getting an inside glimpse
of how research studies are conducted. Half a point of extra credit will be given for every hour of
experiment participation (i.e., if you complete 4 hours of experiments, you will have 2 percentage
points added to your final course grade).
The posting and scheduling of experiments is handled via the Psychology Department Subject Pool
system at http://ucla.sona-systems.com/. More information on how to use the system can be found at
http://www.psych.ucla.edu/undergraduate/subject-pool-experiment-participation. Before signing up for
experiments, you MUST select the course for which you want your experiment credits to count. All
experiments for Fall quarter must be completed by December 5, 2013 (Thursday of 10th Week).
Use of i>clickers:
An i>clicker remote is required for this course so that you can respond to in-class quizzes (graded),
and to other (non-graded) questions that are posed in class. You may use either an original i>clicker,
an i>clicker+, or an i>clicker2, all available at the UCLA Bookstore, or through Internet sites such as
iclicker.com, amazon.com or ebay.com. We will not be using the alphanumeric features of the
i>clicker2 in this course, but future courses you take at UCLA might require this newer model, so you
may want to consider in...
