General'Course'Information'
This'course'is'the'second'part'of'Introduction'to'Psychology.'Along'with'PSYA01,'this'course'provides'students'with'an'overview'of'
the'foundational'aspects'of'psychological'science.'In'PSYA02,'we'will'continue'covering'some'of'the'basic!building!blocks!of'
psychology,'such'as'intelligence,'emotion,'social'psychology,'and'personality.'We’ll'also'spend'some'time'discussing'developmental!
change'across'the'lifespan.'Finally,'we’ll'finish'the'term'by'exploring'atypical!patterns'in'psychology,'including'psychological'
disorders'and'the'treatment'of'them.'
We'think'that'there'is'something'for'everyone'in'this'course.'Even'if'you'don’t'think'that'you'have'thought'deeply'about'psychology'
before,'we'in'fact'are'all'amateur'psychological'scientists,'constantly'pondering'and'analyzing'our'own'psychological'states'and'
those'of'others'around'us.'We'hope'that'you'will'find'aspects'of'this'course'to'be'applicable'to'and'enriching'of'your'daily'lives.''
After'you'finish'the'PSYA01'and'PSYA02'sequence'of'courses,'you’ll'be'prepared'to'dive'further'into'psychological'science'at'the'B-
level.'We'hope'that,'after'this'experience,'you’ll'be'motivated'to'do'so!'

peerScholar'
peerScholar'is'an'online'tool'that'helps'develop'your'critical'thinking'skills.''There'are'three'phases:'

2) You'will'be'randomly'assigned'to'anonymously'evaluate'assignments'submitted'by'approximately'six'of'your'peers.''At'the'

3) You'will'revise'your'composition'in'light'of'the'feedback'you'received,'and'course'TAs'will'grade'you'on'the'final'
composition,'the'quality'of'the'comments'you'gave'to'your'peers,'and'the'appropriateness'of'your'revisions.'

Experimental'Participation'(SONA)'
Many'senior'undergraduates,'graduate'students'and'faculty'conduct'research'aimed'at'better'understanding'psychological'
processes.''You'will'read'about'such'research'throughout'the'course,'but'to'make'what'you'read'more'concrete,'another'
component'of'the'class'involves'you'serving'as'a'participant'in'ongoing'research.''Being'a'participant'will'give'you'the'chance'to'
interact'directly'with'researchers'in'the'context'of'a'few'specific'experiments,'with'the'hope'that'you'will'come'to'a'better'
understanding'of'psychological'research'through'this'experience.''You!will!earn!0.5!credits!for!every!30!minutes!of!participation,!up!
to!a!maximum!of!4!credits!(4!hours).!

Top'Hat'

Midterm'Exam'
The'midterm'exam'will'take'place'in!person!on!Scarborough!campus.!The'midterm'exam'will'take'place'after'Reading'Week.'The'
exact'date'and'time'will'be'scheduled'by'the'Registrar'shortly'after'classes'begin.'As'such,'please'be'prepared'to'write'the'midterm'

The'midterm'exam'will'consist'of'60'multiple-choice'questions'(with'answer'choices'A'through'E).'It'will'cover'material'from'
Chapters'9,'10,'11,'and'12,'as'well'as'any'lectures'on'those'chapters.'You'will'have'two'hours'to'complete'the'test,'giving'you'
approximately'two'minutes'per'question.'

those'two'modalities.'
Final'Exam'
The'final'exam'will'have'the'exact'same'format'as'the'midterm'exam,'and'will'cover'Chapters'13,'14,'15,'and'16.'The'final'exam'is'
not!cumulative.'However,'as'with'the'mTuners,'it'is'important'to'note'that'psychology'is'a'cumulative'discipline.'You'may'very'well'
be'expected'to'remember'some'details'from'earlier'in'the'course'to'best'answer'questions'on'the'final,'but'there'will'be'no'

The'final'exam'takes'place'in!person!on!Scarborough!campus'during'April'exam'period.'The'Registrar'will'not'schedule'the'final'
exam'until'late'February,'so'it'is'essential'to'avoid'making'travel'plans'until'the'exam'has'been'scheduled.'As'with'the'midterm,'

Other'Important'Notes!
Department!of!Psychology!position!on!Grade!Norms!
The'Department'of'Psychology'at'UTSC'is'committed'to'providing'fair,'consistent,'and'uniform'delivery'of'its'courses'from'year'to'
year.'As'part'of'this'commitment,'the'Department'mandates'that'all'A-level'courses’'final'course'averages'fall'between'65%'and'
68%.'That'ensures'that'PSYA02'is'not'graded'harshly'in'one'term'and'leniently'in'another'term.'Typically,'the'average'for'PSYA02'
falls'below'65%,'and'the'instructor'then'adds'points'to'everyone’s'mark.'However,'the'opposite'is'also'theoretically'possible,'where'
the'course'average'falls'above'68%,'and'points'have'to'be'subtracted.'This'has'never'happened'before,'but'the'course'instructor'
reserves'the'right'to'modify'marks'across'the'board'(for'all'students)'to'conform'to'these'averages.'
Grade!Changes!
Under'no!circumstances'will'the'instructor'of'this'course'change'a'grade'for'an'assignment,'an'exam,'or'for'the'course'mark.'There'
is'no!circumstance'(not'a'health'issue,'or'death'in'the'family,'or'impending'graduation'prevented'by'failing'this'course)'that'is'
compelling'enough'for'the'instructor'to'do'so.'The'only!changes'made'to'the'course'marks'will'be'the'ones'provided'to'everyone,'as'
detailed'above'in'the'section'on'Grade'Norms.'That'is'the'only'method'that'ensures'fairness'for'everyone.'Again,!there!are!no!
exceptions!here.'Every'semester'Kyle'has'to'tell'students'“no”,'even'when'they'present'compelling'and'often'heart-wrenching'
excuses.'Please'do'not'put'Kyle'in'the'awkward'position'of'telling'you'“no”'when'you'ask'for'a'grade'change.'It'will'absolutely,'under'
no'circumstances,'ever'happen.'You'may,'as'always,'petition'the'Registrar’s'Office'if'you'believe'that'your'mark'has'been'calculated'
incorrectly.''
