Psychology Department Subject Pool Information

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.
