This requirement is set by the Psychology Department. Failure to complete all six hours by the due date set by the instructor will result in a one-letter grade reduction of the final course grade.To fulfill outside credits for this class you are encouraged to participate in research projects. If you do not participate in enough research studies to fulfill the required 6 hours, you have the option of answering questions about students’ research posters, which are available during finals week. I encourage you to participate in some research in order to get ideas about your own future research projects.To receive credit for participating inresearch: Sign up for studies via theonline system (see handout on Blackboard).The researcher will assign you credit in thecomputer once you participate.
