COURSE DESCRIPTION See the announcement from the School of Psychology that follows the schedule. ACADEMIC FRAUD I try to maintain a collegial atmosphere in the class, because my experience has been that students learn best in a comfortable environment. However, “comfortable” is not synonymous with “lax”. I expect that you will adhere to accepted academic ethics standards and will not engage in academic fraud of any sort. Plagiarising someone else’s work or committing some other type of fraud risks your academic career and wastes my time, and of course will be prosecuted as severely as possible. Please refer to for guidance on what constitutes fraud; you should also check Most important, if you have any doubts about whether or not you’re risking fraud, ask me ahead of time, even if this means a late-night e-mail. There is no penalty for asking ahead of time, but there are severe penalties for committing fraud. COURSE EVALUATION The final mark in the course will consist of several components: Research participation (ISPR) 4% Two midterm exams @ 25.5% each 51% Final exam (exam period) 45% Total 100% Both midterm exams and the final exam consist of multiple-choice questions. The final exam is cumulative, but the second midterm is not cumulative. C OURSE SCHEDULE The list below provides a preliminary schedule for classes.

Organization of the course Each student is assigned to a specific section: A, B, C, D, E, or F. Due to the large number of students registered in this course (over 3500), we have to control the registration in the different sections. When you register, you are automatically assigned to one section. If, for a serious reason, you wish to change section, you should meet, before the deadline, with an academic advisor of your faculty. A professor and a teaching assistant are assigned to each section. Each Intro professor follows a similar procedure. Thus, all Intro sections are substantially the same in content and approach. Textbook The textbook is entitled "Psychology" (10th Edition), by David G. Myers. It is available at the University Bookstore. We strongly suggest that you buy your own copy; it is a recent document on modern psychology and it covers the course program efficiently and pleasurably. Online student resources are available at the following website: Student evaluation The passing mark for this course is 50%. The final exam, identical for all English sections, is worth 45% of your final grade. This exam, containing 100 multiple-choice questions, will be based on the textbook only. The date of the final exam is set by the central administration of the University, and it is usually scheduled at the end of the exam period. THEREFORE, WE STRONGLY SUGGEST THAT YOU CONSULT THE EXAM SCHEDULE BEFORE PLANNING
