4 Columbia College Online Campus P a g e 4 Assignment Overview Discussions Paper You are expected to participate in two discussion topics each week. The first discussions must be completed by Wednesday each week; the second must be completed by Friday. Both your response to the original question AND your replies to classmates (at least 2) are due by the deadline posted. Grades for the discussion will be based on demonstration of your understanding of the reading and online resources that week and your responses to your classmates. You are expected to respond to at least two classmates' postings. You will find more detailed grading criteria in the course environment. I will provide each week a "WEEK # INTRODUCTION" document which will be posted in the NEWS section of the course homepage. This document will contain important course information and specific guidelines for content and topic areas to address and include in the response for each discussion. Topic: In this course, you will write a research paper. This is NOT an essay type paper. Please plan to obtain information for your paper from the text or other professional psychology sources to support your comments and conclusions. As a RESEARCH paper, you should investigate psychological research studies on your topic from professional psychology sources such as books, journals and publications. As a research paper, it should explain the difference between correlation, survey, and experimental types of research and the implications from data obtained from these studies. You must include your references with the paper and list them in an appropriate format at the end of the paper. Please make sure your name, title of paper and date submitted are on the paper heading or title page. An abstract page is not required. APA format is preferred, but not required. (See apastyle.org for further information). If you do not use APA format, you should use another standard referencing format. References should be cited in the body of the paper with a reference list of citations at the end. CHOOSE ONLY ONE OF THE FOLLOWING FIVE TOPICS 1. The human experience involves five general perspectives on human behavior: biological, learning, social/cultural, cognitive and psychodynamic influences. Describe how each of these perspectives explains how a love relationship begins, develops and is maintained. Compare and contrast the impact of these perspectives on behavior in a love relationship any relationship you choose but one that shows a loving interaction between two people, such as spouses, parent/child, brother/sister, etc. This means you are going to choose a relationship and examine it from those theoretical perspectives. Do NOT use the 5 Perspectives for topics Discuss the current research regarding the effects of day care on child development and future behaviors. 3. Discuss the application and relevance of the Stanford Prison Study to current world situations. 4. Discuss the research and relevance of TV and Video game exposure to violence on the subsequent behavior of youth, adolescents and young adults. 5.

Course Policies Student Conduct Plagiarism All Columbia College students, whether enrolled in a land-based or online course, are responsible for behaving in a manner consistent with Columbia College's Student Conduct Code and Acceptable Use Policy. Students violating these policies will be referred to the office of Student Affairs and/or the office of Academic Affairs for possible disciplinary action. The Student Code of Conduct and the Computer Use Policy for students can be found in the Columbia College Student Handbook. The Handbook is available online; you can also obtain a copy by calling the Student Affairs office (Campus Life) at The teacher maintains the right to manage a positive learning environment, and all students must adhere to the conventions of online etiquette. Your grade will be based in large part on the originality of your ideas and your written presentation of these ideas. Presenting the words, ideas, or expression of another in any form as your own is plagiarism. Students who fail to properly give credit for information contained in their written work (papers, journals, exams, etc.) are violating the intellectual property rights of the original author. For proper citation of the original authors, you should reference the appropriate publication manual for your degree program or course (APA, MLA, etc.). Violations are taken seriously in higher education and may result in a failing grade on the assignment, a grade of "F" for the course, or dismissal from the College.

8 Columbia College Online Campus P a g e 8 Collaboration conducted between students without prior permission from the instructor is considered plagiarism and will be treated as such. Spouses and roommates taking the same course should be particularly careful. All required papers may be submitted for textual similarity review to Turnitin.com for the detection of plagiarism. All submitted papers may be included in the Turnitin.com reference database for the purpose of detecting plagiarism. This service is subject to the Terms and Conditions of Use posted on the Turnitin.com site. There is a Plagiarism tutorial available in the course content area in D2L for your assistance. Non-Discrimination There will be no discrimination on the basis of sex, race, color, national origin, sexual orientation, religion, ideology, political affiliation, veteran status, age, physical handicap, or marital status. Disability Services Students with documented disabilities who may need academic services for this course are required to register with the Coordinator for Disability Services at (573) Until the student has been cleared through the disability services office, accommodations do not have to be granted. If you are a student who has a documented disability, it is important for you to read the entire syllabus before enrolling in the course. The structure or the content of the course may make an accommodation not feasible. Online Participation You are expected to read the assigned texts and participate in the discussions and other course activities each week. Assignments should be posted by the due dates stated on the grading schedule in your syllabus. If an emergency arises that prevents you from participating in class, please let your instructor know as soon as possible. Attendance Policy Attendance for a week will be counted as having submitted a course assignment for which points have been earned during that week of the session or if the proctoring information has been submitted or the plagiarism quiz taken if there is no other assignment due that week. A class week is defined as the period of time between Monday and Sunday (except for Week 8, when the week and the course will end on Saturday at midnight). The course and system deadlines are all based on the Central Time Zone. Cougar All students are provided a CougarMail account when they enroll in classes at Columbia College. You are responsible for monitoring from that account for important messages from the College and from your instructor. You may forward your Cougar account to another account; however, the College cannot be held responsible for breaches in security or service interruptions with other providers. Students should use for private messages to the instructor and other students. The class discussions are for public messages so the class members can each see what others have to say about any given topic and respond. Late Assignment Policy An online class requires regular participation and a commitment to your instructor and your classmates to regularly engage in the reading, discussion and writing assignments. Although most of the online communication for this course is asynchronous, you must be able to commit to the schedule of work for the class for the next eight weeks. You must keep up with the schedule of reading and writing to successfully complete the class.

9 Columbia College Online Campus P a g e 9 Discussion posts submitted late will not receive a grade. (It would be like talking to an empty room.) Quizzes (and Final) automatically close at midnight on the date they are due. Quizzes may not be submitted late. This rule can be waived for unexpected and extraordinary circumstances, such as a death in the family. Losing Internet access on Sunday night is not a good reason for missing an exam. The paper may be submitted up to three days late, in the case of emergency situation, but I will deduct 20 points for late submissions (one letter grade). I will not accept papers that are more than three days late. Do not wait until the last minute to submit your paper if at all possible. If you know that your paper will be late, you must communicate with me and request an extension with penalty. Course Evaluation You will have the opportunity to evaluate the course near the end of the session. Course evaluations will open on Sunday of Week 5 and will remain open until Thursday of Week 7. A link will be sent to your CougarMail that will allow you to access the evaluation. Be assured that the evaluations are anonymous and that your instructor will not be able to see them until after final grades are submitted. Proctor Policy Students taking courses that require proctored exams must submit their completed proctor request forms to their instructors by the end of the second week of the session. Proctors located at Columbia College campuses are automatically approved. The use of Proctor U services is also automatically approved. The instructor of each course will consider any other choice of proctor for approval or denial. Additional proctor choices the instructor will consider include: public librarians, high school or college instructors, high school or college counseling services, commanding officers, education service officers, and other proctoring services. Personal friends, family members, athletic coaches and direct supervisors are not acceptable.
