1. Document non-compliance with the Group Bylaws 2. Reach out to your assigned TA with your request. This request must contain documentation and be copied to all group members. Please use the Group Homepage for correspondence to the TA. 3. Either the TA or the Professor will notify all group members of the outcome of this process. 5. Extra credit Throughout the semester, there will be opportunities to earn up to 30 extra credit points. Students can earn extra credit points through Lab/Online Studies, LearnSmart study modules for each chapter, and topical discussions. Lab/online studies All extra credit opportunities will be posted at Be aware that not all studies have unlimited available spots. Some studies may have a close date but will close as soon as the maximum number is reached. I have nothing to do with the studies. If you have questions about the studies please direct them to the individual study coordinators. You will have the opportunity to complete up to participate in 10 points of lab/online studies over the course of the semester. Please note that these opportunities will open and close during the course of the semester. Do not expect to be able to earn all of these points during the last 2 to 4 weeks of the semester. It is YOUR responsibility to manage your extra credit points. Getting the points is contingent on honest participating in the study. If the study coordinators have reason to believe a student participated in a study but didn't answer honestly (responded with all C's, for example), the student will not get credit for the study. In addition, you may not be eligible for future extra credit studies. BE on top of the points and let the coordinators of studies (not Professor Archambeau) know if you believe you are due points but they are not there. NOTE: Extra-credit points will NOT appear automatically in the gradebook. Prior to the end of the term, after the opportunity is closed to participation, the researcher will provide me with the database to merge with your Gradebook. This process is mostly manual and can take a great deal of time. As above, if
9 the information (e.g., UFID, Gatorlink) provided to the researcher is incorrect (incorrect case used within Gatorlink, double entries with slightly different information, etc.), such that a participant cannot be identified, you will NOT receive the point(s). You will know when the points are posted when you see a “Points Posted” notice on the course website in the “Announcements” section. Each extra credit point earned through lab/online study participation is worth 3 points towards your extra credit allowance to your grade. All points will be posted by the end of the semester unless otherwise noted. It is not uncommon for some or even most of the extra credit study participation points to not become available in Gradebook until near the end of the semester, due to the nature and scope of the studies the various researchers involved are conducting. Please DO NOT email either the Professor or the TAs asking when
