This assignment sheet is designed for students who choose the alternate activity to replace the research requirement of participating in a Department of Psychology research study. As you may know, students are expected to complete at least three hours of outside of class research activities. This is a requirement for all Introduction to Psychology students, and the requirement can be fulfilled either by serving as a participant for at least 3 hours, or by completing this alternate research activity. It is offered to students who choose not to participate as a human subject in a research study, or are unable to complete enough study time and need additional research hours. You may also complete a combination of research participation and alternative research papers to meet the requirement. Each research paper that conforms to the requirements below equates to 1.5 hours of outside of class research activity. Two papers satisfy the requirement. Likewise, 1.5 hours of research participation and one paper satisfy the requirement.
