Psychology & AP Psychology Final Week 5/11-5/15

We will have our last content Zoom call on Tuesday at 2:00 for both Psychology & AP Psychology (see link below).  We will continue coverage of Social Psychology. Make sure you have completed the Social Psychology Application assignment by then so we can discuss terms you may need clarification on. The assignment is part of the course extension test grade so do an excellent job on it.

The optional Course Extension test will be administered on Wednesday at 2:00 via a Zoom call (see link below) so I can monitor you as you take it. You will send me an email with your Social Psych application assignment attached and I will send you a return email with the test. Make sure you can print the test. You will write on your own paper. Your work space must be TOTALLY clear and you should position your camera so I can see the entire area around you, not just your head. The sound should also be UNMUTED so choose a quiet place to take the test!!! Unfortunately, I have had students cheat recently and am taking every precaution possible to avoid other such incidents. Understand, that if you cheat, you will receive a ZERO and be written up.

The test is primarily focused on Social Psychology vocabulary application. Make sure to study ALL the vocab found on nicolefredericksen’s quizlet (Chapter 13), not just the ones from the assignment. It will consist of 50 multiple choice questions and count 15% of your final grade. Start prepping now since most of you who choose to take it will need to do well to earn the higher grade you are hoping for. You can use the RogerHub grade calculator on the internet to see the grade you will need and if it is worth your while to take the test. Please understand you will need to EARN it. You have had plenty of chances to pull your grade up with the positive grading policy, but many students did not take advantage of that opportunity. You know I am old school….grades are earned, not given.

As for the College Board AP Psychology Exam on May 1 9th, please refer to the Review blog post for information, resources, videos, etc. to prepare for the exam. You should find an answer to all your questions there.

Good luck and strive for Self Actualization…lol. Take care.  Mr. S

2020 AP Exam Reminders/Information from Ms. Poole

Below are a few reminders from Ms. Poole regarding the AP exams. Please see my Review Blog Post for a more detailed review of what to expect and prepare for on ex

  • College Board is allowing students to cancel their exam without penalty (however we still want to encourage students to take the exam!). CB has a new policy which states that we cannot change the exam status of students in CB after 4/20. So students who want to cancel the exam at this point, simply do not log in to take the exam. Once they log in, they are charged for the exam. Students who do not log in to take the exam will be able to request a refund through total registration, but not until after June 5th.
  •  An updated exam schedule can be found here https://apcoronavirusupdates.collegeboard.org/students/taking-ap-exams/ap-exam-schedule

    .

  • Students will be sent an exam ticket via email, but they will also be able to access this ticket through their AP account.
  • You are expected to login 30 minutes before the exam starts.
  • Make sure you have working technology and internet service. Those who do not should contact Ms. Lucia Poole.
  • Students who believe they get accommodations will need to confirm with College Board or through their AP account. Accommodations for students, such as extended time, will be automatically built in for students who have already gotten approval through College Board’s Services for Students with Disabilities department.

Thursday: CHANGE OF PLANS: NO ZOOM on THURSDAY

We have 4 units remaining but will not have time to cover all of them. We are going to skip the Motivation/Emotion (Unit IX) and cover Personality (X), Abnormal Psych & Therapy (XI), & hopefully Social Psychology (XII) in that order.

The last test scores were NOT good. I know online learning is not for everyone, including me, and the testing format was not what you are used to, but it was obvious you guys did not know the vocab and/or were not able to apply it to the questions. I did not have you define all the terms, which may have been a mistake on my part, but as I said all semester, knowing the vocab is critical for success in this class. However, many of the questions on the test came straight from the Intelligence study guide that we went over in Zoom,  yet scores were still low in that section. Unsure what I can do to help with that.

With that said, you will have a Personality Vocabulary Quiz on Tuesday at 2:00 via Zoom. Before we go over the content, I want you to have a base knowledge of the vocab. Plus, I want you to have more assessments in hope of bringing your quiz average up to help your overall grade. You can use quizlet. In the search bar, type in nicolefredericksen and look for Myers/Dewall 12e Chapter 14. There are 37 terms. You will get a word bank for the quiz and I will post it right before the ZOOM meeting so you can print it out and take it from home as I monitor it on a ZOOM call. There will be a time limit, however, so make sure you know your stuff! We will cover one of the Personality theories (Psychoanalysis) after the quiz.

Use today to start reviewing the Personality vocabulary…the spacing effect. In addition, your weekly journal is due by NOON tomorrow. I will not take it after that. Again, deadlines still exist.

Hang in there. I am here to help, but you have to put in the time and effort on your end. Are you studying? Are you engaged in the Zoom sessions? Are you writing down what we cover? Have you watched the Crash Course review videos for reinforcement? As they say…HUNKER DOWN!

See you on Tuesday! Uncle Shelty
