  • I have updated your Interim Grade Check to include all assignments except  the third exam. Check your grade using the PIN you provided. If you did not provide a PIN, check with me to see what PIN I assigned you. Let me know if my records do not match up with yours. I can easily check a graded assignment and correct my records - but would need to do so by May 25th.
  • You may pick up your exams, or anything else that you have not yet picked up in the Fall semester, or check with the CHDV office this summer for my summer office hours.

Congrats to Graduates!

Have a restful summer.

  • The fourth (and final) set of research discussions are scheduled for the Monday 5/4 lab session (Bos et al. 12:00 - 12:35, and Waldrip et al. 12:40 - 1:15) If you are scheduled to be a discussion leader, be sure to bring 3 copies of your one-page outline and complete the discussion leader worksheet before the session. If you will be a discussant, read the article and complete the participant worksheet in advance of the session. If you are not scheduled for a particular session, you should not attend lab that day.

I. Sample Characteristics n =42

Younger group n=16 (mean age=5.38 years; 9 boys and 7 girls)

Middle group n=17 (mean age=9.17 years; 8 boys, 9 girls)

Older group n=9 (mean age= 12.00 years; 4 boys and 5 girls)

 

II. Tests of age differences

Age

  2.37 (1.15)a

    2.11 (1.22)a

     1.22 (1.15)b

    2.78 (1.20)

Need

 2.81 (1.22)

 2.35 (1.00)

  3.00 (.87)

Note: F tests revealed that the oldest children rated the age solution as significantly less fair than both the middle and youngest children, F = 3.42, p < .05. There were no other significant age differences. All children rated the equality solution significantly higher than the other solutions, F=7.25, p<.05.

Hello and welcome!  Here are a couple of things to keep in mind as we begin the course:

  • Please take a little time to browse through the course web pages this week. You'll likely find some helpful information about course assignments and resources. I do not suggest that you print off the entire web site! Instead, print off those pages that have information you will need in written form (i.e., assignment handouts, lecture outlines). There are a lot of pages for me to take care of, so if any of the links are missing, or if you are having difficulties, please let me know.

  • You can keep on track in the course and assignment due dates by accessing the course schedule. The course schedule will be updated periodically. Be sure to check this announcements page and the course schedule weekly. There are links to almost everything you need from these two pages.

  • Lecture outlines are posted to the course schedule as I develop and revise them (i.e., throughout the semester). I will typically post one or two outlines at a time, so if you find that a particular lecture isn't yet linked, it probably means I haven't posted it yet.

  • Be advised that CHDV 133 is a prerequisite for this course. If you have not already taken CHDV 133, you will be removed from the course roster by the department.
