Psychology 1010

Kathie F. Nunley

Here is a sample unit I used in a Psychology 1010 class which met one night a week. The students received credit for coming to class, but also got to choose from a variety of assignments for the rest of the unit grade. If they missed a class, besides being responsible for getting the lecture notes, they would have to make up the points through additional assignments. Some of these were done in class, others at home, depending on the student's schedule and preference. We had a 100 point exam at the end of the unit, so these units counted toward 1/3 of their grade.
