<ul><li><p>PSY 230: HUMAN GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT SUMMER 2017 </p><p>Instructor </p><p>Carl E. Granrud, PhD, Professor of Psychological Sciences </p><p>Email: carl.granrud@unco.edu </p><p>PSY 230 Online </p><p>This section of PSY 230 is an online class. We will not meet in a classroom at any time. </p><p>All work will be completed on Canvas, UNCs online learning management system. </p><p>Course Objectives </p><p>This course provides an introduction to human development from before birth through </p><p>late adulthood. We will cover scientific research in developmental psychology, focusing </p><p>on physical, cognitive, emotional, and social development in infancy, early and middle </p><p>childhood, adolescence, early and middle adulthood, and late adulthood. </p><p>Communication between Students and Instructor </p><p>Students are encouraged to stay in contact with the instructor to ensure that all questions </p><p>are answered and all assignments are clearly understood. The following procedures are </p><p>recommended for communicating with the instructor: </p><p> Send e-mail to the instructor to ask questions about course requirements, grades, deadlines, etc. When sending e-mail, always include PSY 230 in the subject </p><p>line of the message. On weekdays, the instructor will respond to e-mail within 24 </p><p>hours (response time may be longer on weekends). </p><p> Contact Macmillan tech support, not the instructor, to report technical problems with Launchpad. Send email to the instructor if you need deadline extensions or </p><p>extra time on assignments, or if you notice inaccuracies in the grade book on </p><p>Canvas. </p><p> The instructor will often send e-mail to students at their BearMail accounts. Make sure to check your UNC/BearMail account regularly. </p><p> The instructor will not be available by phone during the summer session. </p><p>Grading </p><p>This course is letter graded. Your grade is determined from the number of points you earn </p><p>during the term. There are 600 points available, distributed as follows: </p><p>Assignment Points per Assignment Total Points Available </p><p>Syllabus quiz 10 10 points </p><p>14 Chapter quizzes 30 420 points </p><p>45 Learning Curves 3 135 points </p><p>Discussion Board 5 per week 35 points </p><p> (plus 5 pt. bonus if discussion requirement is met all 6 weeks) </p><p>Grades will be assigned as follows: </p><p>A = 552-600 (92-100%) A- = 540-551 (90-91.9%) B+ = 528-539 (88-89.9%) </p><p>B = 492-527 (82-87.9%) B- = 480-491 (80-81.9%) C+ = 468-479 (78-79.9%) </p><p>C = 432-467 (72-77.9%) C- = 420-431 (70-71.9%) D+ = 408-419 (68-69.9%) </p><p>D = 372-407 (62-67.9%) D- = 360-371 (60-61.9%) F = 0-359 (0-59.9%) </p><p>mailto:carl.granrud@unco.edu</p></li><li><p>2 </p><p>Textbook </p><p>The textbook for this class is Invitation to the lifespan (2nd edition), by Kathleen Berger. </p><p>The book comes in a paper version and an online e-book version. THE E-BOOK IS </p><p>REQUIRED. A paper copy of the book is optional. The e-book is part of a set of online </p><p>resources called Launchpad. To purchase the e-book, log onto Canvas, click on </p><p>Launchpad Registration Instructions on the PSY 230 homepage, and follow the </p><p>instructions to buy access to Launchpad. Make sure to go through Canvas when you </p><p>register on Launchpad. After you have registered on Launchpad, you can access the e-</p><p>book through Canvas by clicking on the E-Book Home link on the PSY 230 Canvas </p><p>Home page for in any of the chapter modules. </p><p>Assignments and Quizzes </p><p>All work for PSY 230 is completed through Canvas. All assigned work can be found by </p><p>clicking on Modules in the course menu on Canvas. There is a module for each </p><p>textbook chapter. Each module includes Learning Curve activities, a chapter quiz, and </p><p>discussion questions for each chapter. </p><p>Learning Curve </p><p>Learning Curve activities are chapter reviews, presented in the form of practice tests. </p><p>These activities are excellent for test preparation. They are required in PSY 230 because </p><p>they are very effective at facilitating student learning. Most chapters include three </p><p>learning curve activities. However, some chapters have more than three and one chapter </p><p>has only two. There are 45 assigned Learning Curve activities. </p><p>In each Learning Curve activity, you are tested on all of the key concepts in a section of a </p><p>chapter. When you have correctly answered questions on all key concepts, you have </p><p>completed the activity. </p><p>Learning Curve activities have no time limit. In addition, you can stop a Learning Curve </p><p>activity and resume later. You will receive 3 points for a completed Learning Curve </p><p>activity and 0 points for activities that are not completed. No scores other than 3 and 0 </p><p>will be given for Learning Curve activities. </p><p>Deadlines for the Learning Curve activities are listed in the Summary of Deadlines on the </p><p>last page of the syllabus. The Learning Curve activities for Chapters 2-12 have 6-day </p><p>grace periods. These activities may be completed with no penalty (i.e., no points </p><p>deducted from your score) up to 11:59 PM, 6 days after their deadlines. After the grace </p><p>period ends, students will receive scores of 0 on all incomplete activities. There is no </p><p>grace period for the Chapter 13-15 Learning Curve activities. They are due on the last </p><p>day of the term. </p><p>Chapter Quizzes </p><p>There are 14 chapter quizzes, worth 30 points each. Each chapter quiz covers one </p><p>chapter. The quizzes cover Chapters 2-15. There is no quiz on Chapter 1. </p><p>Each chapter quiz consists of 15 multiple-choice questions, worth 2 points each, and has </p><p>a time limit of 15 minutes. Once you start a quiz, you must finish it within 15 minutes in </p></li><li><p>3 </p><p>one sitting. If you exceed the 15-minute time limit, the quiz will close down, you will not </p><p>be able to continue, and this will count as one attempt. You cannot start a quiz, stop, and </p><p>then go back to finish it later. Do not start a quiz until you have studied the material and </p><p>are ready to complete the quiz in one sitting. </p><p>Two attempts are allowed on each quiz. You will not receive the same questions on the </p><p>second attempt that you saw on the first attempt. Only your last attempt will count toward </p><p>your grade. If you make two attempts, your score on the second attempt is used to </p><p>compute grades, even if it is lower than your score on the first attempt. So, make a second </p><p>attempt only if you are confident that you can improve your score or if you reached the </p><p>time limit before finishing your first attempt. </p><p>A deadline for each quiz is given in the Summary of Deadlines on the last page of the </p><p>syllabus. Chapter Quizzes 2-12 have a 6-day grace period. These quizzes may be </p><p>completed with no penalty (i.e., no points deducted from your score) up to 11:59 PM, 6 </p><p>days after their deadlines. After the grace period ends, students will receive scores of 0 on </p><p>all incomplete quizzes. There is no grace period for Quizzes 13-15. These quizzes are due </p><p>on the last day of the term. </p><p>Preparing for quizzes </p><p>To prepare for each quiz, read the textbook chapter and complete all of the Learning </p><p>Curve activities for that chapter. The chapter review is also recommended, but not </p><p>required. </p><p>Quizzes are open book </p><p>You may use your book and notes during quizzes. However, dont expect to have time to </p><p>look up answers during a quiz. Before starting a quiz, you should study the material as </p><p>thoroughly as you would for a closed-book test in a classroom. </p><p>Syllabus Quiz </p><p>The first quiz for PSY 230 covers the syllabus. A score of 10 points (100% correct) is </p><p>required on the Syllabus Quiz. Scores of less than 10 points will be converted to zero in </p><p>the grade book. The Syllabus Quiz has no time limit, and you may take it as often as </p><p>necessary up to its deadline, to achieve a score of 10 points. The syllabus quiz will not be </p><p>available after the deadline listed in the Summary of Deadlines on the last page of the </p><p>syllabus; there is no grace period for this quiz. </p><p>Discussions </p><p>Discussion questions are found in the Chapter modules on Canvas. The purpose of the </p><p>discussions is to encourage active and critical thinking about research, theories, and </p><p>overall themes in developmental psychology. Each student is required to make at least </p><p>two discussion posts during Week 1 and at least four posts per week during Weeks 2-6. </p><p>In Week 1, you will receive 5 points for making two posts. In Weeks 2-6, you will </p><p>receive 10 points for each week in which you make the four required posts (you may </p><p>make more than 4 posts; 4 is just the minimum). You will receive zero points for weeks </p><p>in which you make fewer than the minimum number of posts. </p></li><li><p>4 </p><p>There is no grace period for discussion-board posts. All required posts for each week </p><p>must be posted by 11:59 PM on Friday of that week. </p><p>In all communications related to this class, including discussion board posts, students are </p><p>expected to be professional in the tone and content of their communications, tolerant of </p><p>diverse ideas, and respectful toward the instructor and other students. </p><p>Disability Support Services </p><p>Students who believe that they may need accommodations in this class are encouraged to </p><p>contact the Disability Support Services, voice/TTY (970) 351-2289, or fax (970) 351-</p><p>4166, or visit www.unco.edu/dss as soon as possible to ensure that accommodations are </p><p>implemented in a timely fashion. </p><p>Inclusivity Statement </p><p>The College of Education and Behavioral Sciences (CEBS) supports an inclusive </p><p>learning environment where diversity and individual differences are understood, </p><p>respected, appreciated, and recognized as a source of strength. We expect that students, </p><p>faculty, administrators and staff within CEBS will respect differences and demonstrate </p><p>diligence in understanding how other peoples perspectives, behaviors, and worldviews </p><p>may be different from their own. </p><p>Academic Integrity Policy </p><p>The University of Northern Colorados Student Code of Conduct </p><p>http://www.unco.edu/dos/Conduct/codeofconduct.html and Honor Code </p><p>http://www.unco.edu/dos/Conduct/academicIntegrity.html strictly prohibit any form of </p><p>academic misconduct. Academic misconduct includes but is not limited to plagiarism, </p><p>cheating, fabrication, and knowingly or recklessly encouraging or making possible any </p><p>act of plagiarism, cheating, or fabrication. Academic misconduct is an unacceptable </p><p>activity in scholarship and is in conflict with academic and professional ethics and </p><p>morals. All incidents of alleged plagiarism or other forms of academic dishonesty will be </p><p>investigated and violations of academic integrity will result in a consequence that may be </p><p>as severe as an F in the class and a recommendation for expulsion.
