An alternative to participation in experiments is available for those students who
do not wish to participate in an experiment or for those students who have tried and
failed to find an experiment that fits their schedule.
For this alternative, you will be required to obtain a copy of an empirical journal
article from a peer reviewed Psychology journal (found in the library). Bring a copy
of the article to your 1200 instructor for his/her approval. If it is approved, read
the article and write a one-page typed (double-space) summary that includes information
on what the researchers were studying, how they studied it, and what they found. Then,
turn it in (along with the copy of the article) to your instructor for his/her review
to determine if credit should be given. Each acceptable review your turn in will be
worth one hour of extra credit. You may turn in up to 10 reviews.
