cognition exam

May 1st, 2006 (08:33 am)

Cog Scholars,

Per Spencer's request...I averaged your 3 exams and standardized them. No one met my criteria for exemption, even though there are some very good grades in the class. Actually, that is the problem. Several people have really good grades and several people have really bad grades. The distribution is very wide and flat...

I'll see everyone on Tuesday.

Stats Update: the tests are graded!

April 28th, 2006 (07:55 am)


The following three have an A in Stat after exam #4: Breedlove, Emmett, and Love. Congratulations!

I'll see the rest of you on Tuesday, bright and early (actually it still might be dark, bring coffee and an abacus).

Update for all classes -- Pesky tests and all....

April 24th, 2006 (09:23 am)
current mood: fried, turn me over on the other side


As I reflect on coming to the end of our run together this semester, I have a good time. I hope that you have taken advantage of all the information and opportunities that have been made available to you. Congratulations to those of you that will be graduating.

Intro Psych -- We will be finishing up with the modules on Cognition( 28) and Intelligence(30, 31, 32). We won't have time to cover Language, you will get a good dosage of it if you take a human development class. Our final test will cover the 4 modules mentioned above. We will take it on the last day of class, Friday the 28th. I will have them graded and will make them available on Monday so that you may prepare for the Final Examination on Friday the 5th, from 10:30 until 12:30.

Stats -- We will finish the chapter on Correlations and Regression on Tuesday and take test #4 on Thursday the 27th. I will have them graded by Friday morning. You should stop by and pick it up so that you can work on the problems you missed and get back with me before the exam on Tuesday the 2nd. I will take meetings by appointment on Monday. Let me know and I will put you in the calendar. I am willing to come early on Tuesday for those of you that like to take your time and double check your calculations. We can work a start time out on Thursday before the exam.

Cognition -- Hey you social bookmarking gurus :-) Our third test is coming up on Thursday the 27th. The test will cover four chapters: concepts and categorization, visual imagery, thinking/problem solving, and a little bit of reasoning (whatever we get covered on Tuesday the 25th). Your bookmarks are due for each of the chapters on on the 25th. This should allow everyone to learn a little bit more as they study for the exam on Thursday. Make sure you contribute your review before the examination on Thursday. Your CogLab assignments should be finished by the last day of class (Friday the 28th). I realize that a few of the demos have been removed from the site, therefore, you were not able to complete the assignments I asked you to do. I'm on top of it and will make sure that everyone gets credit. Your final exam will be on Tuesday the 2nd, from 1 until 3. Bring a #2 lead as it will be multiple guess.

e-tiquette -- My thoughts on email etiquette and contacting me

April 24th, 2006 (08:11 am)
current mood: empty Ss line

I am happy to be a part of your environment and I hope that you are comfortable coming to me and engaging em in conversation. Feel free to speak with me in a media appropriate tone. If I feel that you wonder outside the boundaries of a reasonable relationship I will let you know. I hope that you will do the same...no hard feelings ;-)

Of course, the same can not be said for all of you other profs. You might want to take a little time and read the email etiquette link that follows the snippet from Dan Mitchell's teachnology blog.

Dan Mitchell's Teachnology Blog : News:
Be Polite, E-Polite
"Some professors respond to publicity about students' online demands by setting out some rules." [Inside Higher Ed]
Sarah McClure, an adjunct assistant professor of anthropology, said that she's received some e-mail messages from students that use "completely inappropriate" language.
McClure said that some students seem to feel "that e-mail is a casual form of communication, where professional relationships somehow do not exist as they do in the classroom" students feel comfortable saying things in an email that they would never say to you in person.
Well, yes. Email is a casual form of communication. It does imply a different set of relationships than those in the traditional classroom. Students do (and perhaps should?) feel comfortable saying things in email that they would not feel comfortable saying in person or in front of a class.
In my view, the professor misses the point. Email (and IM and web site, etc.) changes the relationship between students and faculty in some ways that may, once we all adapt, benefit faculty and students.

Peer Mentor Opp for Fall -- Learning Communities.

April 20th, 2006 (06:48 pm)
current mood: duh


The new learning communities that will begin in the fall are looking for peer mentors. I believe this might work out as an internship.

I am attaching the documents should you want to apply.

I will be teaching in one of the learning communities with Bryson Paine. It is basically a cognitive science community. We are focusing on collaboration and will be using a lot of web2.0 apps. There are also several bio, english, spanish communities too.

Let me know if you are interested. We can talk.

This needs to be done right away, so don't dilly-dally. Turn it in.

Application as a pdf file.
