    25. PSYC 9070 Proseminar: Cognitive Psychology – Spring 2013 Classroom: ASH 401 Section: 001 Time: MW F 1:00 - 1:50 PM Instructor: Dr. Michael J. Cortese Office: AS 347D Phone: (402) 554-2587 E-mail: mcortese@unomaha.eduWeb: http://myweb.unomaha.edu/~mcortese Office Hours: MW 3:00 to 3:50 PM, F 12:00 to 12:50 PM or by appt. Text: None. Course Description: This course will be a comprehensive overview of the field of cognitive psychology including the topics of attention and performance, memory, problem solving, and language. In addition, there will be a more in-depth coverage of selected issues.

    26. Educational Goals: 1) To create interest in cognitive psychology 2) To advance knowledge about cognitive psychology 3) To develop research skills 4) To strengthen analytical thinking 5) To develop creativity 6) To develop communication skills Grading: Course grades will be determined mainly from: 1) A midterm examination (30%) 2) Research proposal or literature review (20%) 3) Final examination (30%) 4) Class attendance (10%) 5) Pop quizzes (5%) 6) Presentations and participation (10%)

    27. Final grades will then be determined according to the following scale: Section 001 A = 92-100% A- = 90-91.9% B+ = 87-89.9% B = 82-86.9% B- = 80-81.9% C+ = 77-79.9% C = 70-76.9% C- = 65-69.9% D = 60-64.9% F = less than 60%

    28. Midterm and Final Exam Both of these exams will be take-home exams. Questions may come from lectures and/or readings. Class Attendance Attendance is required, and the grade for attendance will be based on the number of classes missed. Number of classes missedAttendance grade 0-1 100% 2-3 90% 4 80% 5 70% 6 60% 7 or more 50%

    29. Presentations and Participation Participation comes in the form of class discussion. This discussion includes both when you are leading and not leading the discussion. When you are leading the discussion, you will be giving a presentation on readings selected by Dr. Cortese and other readings selected by you. The presentation grade will be based on the clarity of the presentation, the duration of the presentation, and the perceived interest of the audience. While Dr. Cortese will supply an assigned reading for each section, it is the responsibility of the presenter that the presentations take up the entire allotted time. Thus, the presenter may need to access and utilize additional materials. In addition, points will be subtracted when the presentations exceed the allotted time or fall markedly short of covering the intended material.

    30. Pop Quizzes There will be pop quizzes to ensure that you are reading the course readings. Quizzes will consist of multiple choice questions. Each student will be responsible for constructing a pop quiz for his/her section. The pop quiz is due at 5:00 PM the day before the student’s first scheduled presentation. The pop quiz grade for the student giving the presentation and, thus, constructing the pop quiz will be based on: a) meeting the deadline and b) the quality of the quiz. For example, points will be deducted for ambiguity, vagueness, grammatical errors, and quizzes that are deemed to be too easy or too difficult.

    31. Research Proposal or Literature Review The research proposal or literature review is due along with the final exam on May 3rd. You will write either a research proposal or a comprehensive literature review about some issue in cognitive psychology. The proposal will consist of a title page, abstract, introduction, method, results (describing the analyses that would be appropriate given the research design), and references. The literature review will be on a topic to be approved by Dr. Cortese. You may also include tables, figures, and/or appendices.

    32. Late Policy for (Research Proposal or Literature Review) Paper To be fair to those who turn their papers in on time, there must be a penalty for papers turned in after the deadline. Late papers will lose 5% each day that they are late. The first 5% penalty will occur one minute after the deadline, and the second 5% will be subtracted at 12:00 AM on the subsequent day. Because deadlines are clearly stated on the syllabus, and there is plenty of time to complete this assignment, there will be no exceptions. Note: I must receive a hard copy of the research proposal or literature review. Fifteen percentage points will be subtracted from the grade of any paper turned in via email.

    33. Make-up or Late Exam Policy If you miss an exam deadline because of an emergency (e.g., death in the family, illness/injury) some documentation of the emergency must be provided to Dr. Cortese. Based on this documentation and the nature of the emergency, Dr. Cortese will decide whether or not to grant an extension. Without documentation, you will receive a grade of 0 for that exam if it is turned in late.
