Attached is the syllabus for the assignment. As far as the theme of the articles, my professor already approved me to do discrimination in the workplace (i.e. race, gender, sexual orientation, age, etc.) Therefore, I need to have scholarly journal articles that possess this theme.

Annotated Bibliography Each student 1 is to do an annotated bibliography. This annotated bibliography must have 15 articles covering a topic area of personal interest related to industrial/ organizational psychology. The topic of interest is up to you. However, I recommend you check on this topic with me during office hours or by email. I will help you make sure the topic is relevant to the class. This annotated bibliography is worth 250 points (25% of your grade). The annotated bibliography is due by 10 AM on April 22, 2016 . This annotated bibliography is to be provided electronically. I do not want a paper copy. This annotated bibliography must be done in an MS-Word; WordPerfect or pdf format. Students providing annotated bibliographies after this time will lose 2 points per hour that they are late from the final point total received for this assignment. The amount of penalty is determined by when I receive the assignment via email. This email will give you a time stamp which I will use to assess any penalty. This annotated bibliography must have the following components: A. A cover sheet listing your name and the topic area. B. The second sheet should have each reference in this annotated bibliography listed in APA style. C. The annotated bibliography should then have 15 pages using the format provided in the abstract below. Each entry should be on a separate page. D. Each annotated bibliography should have an appendix in which the abstracts of all articles listed in the annotated bibliography are provided. I will be reading your annotated bibliography and gauging the degree to which each entry goes beyond the abstract. An example of an entry in an annotated bibliography is provided below: Puncochar, J., & Fox, P. (2004). Confidence in individual and group decision making: When two heads are worse than one. Journal of Educational Psychology, 96(3) 582-591. The article examined the idea of whether people make more accurate decisions when alone or when aided by the opinions of others when in a group. In particular the authors looked at the concept of confidence resolution, an individual’s level of confidence about correct answers versus their confidence about incorrect answers. In an ideal situation the level of confidence should be highest when answers are correct and lowest when answers are incorrect. Results for each of the three studies suggest that individuals tend to be overly confident about what they know as opposed to what they do not know and that making decisions about answers in a group greatly influences their perceptions. Individuals tended to rate their incorrect answers with lower amounts of confidence as opposed to group members who usually rated their incorrect answers with a much higher level of confidence,

often higher than they rated their correct responses. Hence, “the two heads are better than one” is shown to be wrong. Decisions made in group contexts, therefore, may lead to negative consequences for the group and potentially those affected by the group’s decisions as well.
