I can take a maximum of 4 people as undergraduate TAs for this class next year.

If you will be here for both Winter and Spring quarters of 2014, and you are interested in being an undergraduate TA for this class, please come by and see me. Feel free to call or email me to set up an appointment.

Important things to know are these.

· Class times and the class structure will be the same next year as it is this year.

· Skills for being an undergraduate TA include both understanding the class materials and being able to explain them to others.

· Undergraduate TAs are expected to attend all class lectures, hold their own section, hold 3 hours a week of office hours, grade their section's homework, and help grade exams.

· Although it's a lot of work, being an undergraduate TA has a number of advantages: you learn the materials much better, you develop skill as an instructor, you develop a nice relationship with your fellow TA's and you get a letter of recommendation from me which is useful for your future (plus, at the end of the year, I take everyone out for a celebratory TA dinner).

· Class credit (I believe Psych 497) is available for being an undergraduate TA.

· Please talk to any of the current TAs to get the best sense of what the job is like.

· Amanda will be out of town later in the week, so she will not have her usual office hours on Thursday. She apologizes, and will be available via email if you have questions.

· Chapter 13

· It's been brought to my attention that Practice Exams 2 and 3, allegedly from 2006 are actually from 2004. This is true, but unfortunately, I can't fix the problem, because the actual exams from 2006 have disappeared. I'm sorry for this, but you do still have all exams from 2008, 2009, and 2010, as well as all exams *except* Exams 2 and 3 from 2006.

· Please make note of which section you are in

· You've been assigned to the same TA as you were for Psychology 317

· If it is *impossible* for you to attend section at the time you've been assigned, please email me and I will switch you to a section at the other time.

· Class syllabus (pretty much the same as it was for Psychology 317). NOTE that the first exam will be on Wednesday, April 10.

· Textbook errata sheet (same as from Psychology 317, so most of you should already have it)

· Psychology 318 practice exams from 2006, 2008, 2009, and 2010. The general organization is the same as it was for the Psychology 317 practice exams.

· Chapter 10

· Monday's lecture will get into what is traditionally Psychology 318 material (Chapter 10; t-test) and the Psychology 317 Final Exam will cover t-test to some degree. So this seems like as good a time as any to post Psychology 318 practice exams, which you can download from 2006, 2008, 2009, and 2010. You'll find all of them useful next quarter, but Exam 1 will be relevant to this year's Psychology 317 Final. The general organization is the same as it was for the Psychology 317 practice exams.

· Please download Final HW assignment from this Excel workbook.

· Please download Final HW assignment from this Excel workbook. Note that various numbers from most of the text problems have been changed.

· Please note: I will post the final version of the FHW after the 3/11/13 lecture. It's likely that many of these problems will be eliminated from FHW and will become part of the Psychology 318 HW1 which will be due on 4/4/13. So assuming that you will be taking Psychology 318 next quarter, you will be assigned all of these problems at some point in the not-very-distant future.

· Chapter 10

· Please download HW5 assignment from this Excel workbook. Note that various numbers from most of the text problems have been changed.

· Eliminate all Chapter 10 problems. Some of them will appear on the Final HW to be assigned soon, and due on Thursday, 3/14/13. All of them will be assigned by HW1 of Psychology 318, which will be due on 4/4/13.

· Please note: it's highly likely that some of the problems -- particularly Chapter 10 problems -- will be eliminated from HW5 and will become part of the Final HW which will be due on 3/14/13. I'm including all problems that may show up for the remainder of Psychology 317 so that anyone who wants to can get a head start on them.

· IMPORTANT NOTE: When you turn in HW *do **put it in the Psychology 317 mailbox in the Guthrie Hall mail room. Do not leave them in Dr. Loftus's mailbox: if you do, they will probably not be picked up or graded. *Also be sure to staple your HW pages together.

· There are a couple. Numbers is Apple's counterpart to Excel. Recently, I downloaded Stats Pad ($5.99, I think). I haven't tried to use it much, but from what I could see, it looks pretty good.

· Chapter 3, Appendix C

· Chapters 2 (review only) and 3; also Appendixes A and B

· Please download HW2 assignment from this Excel workbook. Note that mostly the problems are from the text but, as specified on the workbook, there are some changes to some of the problems. Also, there is one additional problem, Problem A1.

Kat's office hours have changed slightly: they are now Monday, 10:20-12:20 and Wednesday, 10:20-11:20.

· NOTE: For some of the HW answers you can see the underlying Excel formulas by clicking on the relevant cell. For other answers, you do not see the formulas; you only see the values.

· To practice for exams, you can download the actual Psychology 317 course exams from from 2006, 2008, 2009, and 2010.

· Note that the folder of exams for a given year contains the exams themselves (as Word documents) plus one "Exam Answers" Excel workbook. **Please note: **in the "Exam Answers" workbook, the answers to the individual exams are individual worksheets within the workbook that can be accessed by clicking the tabs at the bottom left.

· Please note also that different exams covered different materials in different years. It is up to you to figure out which material on any given practice exam is relevant to the exams this year.

You can download from here a contingency table relevant to the seminar example that I described in class today, 1/14/13.

Apologies for the botched attempt at the end of class. Please download a 3x2 contingency table from here.

· You can still download HW1 assignment from this Excel workbook but **drop **the following problems (which will show up on HW2): 4b (8-15), 7, 9, 10e-i, 10l, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16

You will all have been assigned a Section by the UW computer (either an 8:30 section or a 9:30 section that meet on Fridays). However, the UW computer does not do anything about equating the number of students in each section, and in addition, there are actually fewer sections than the UW computer thinks there are; specifically, Sections AE and AG no longer exist. To solve these problems, we will override the UW computer's section assignments and assign you to sections ourselves. Everyone's section assignment will be posted by the second day of the quarter.

·Please be sure to staple your homework pages together and circle your answers.

·You can turn in homework to a TA (ideally your TA, but any TA will do)

·You can turn in homework in the Guthrie mail room in the mailbox marked "Psychology 317" with a red label (located sort of to the lower right of the wall facing you as you enter the room ). If you do this, you will discover manila envelopes in that mailbox. Find the one corresponding to your section/TA and put your homework in that envelope.

· There are answers to the odd textbook problems at the end of the book. Many of these answers will be at best incomplete and at worst wrong. Don't get me started on why this is true. After each homework assignment is due, you will receive a full, complete, well-organized, and hopefully correct answer sheet for all the homework problems that have been assigned to you. The first answer sheet, to HW 1, will be posted on 1/10/13, shortly after 12:30 PM

· Chapter 1

· Class syllabus: Please read carefully before coming to the first class lecture.

· Handout packet: I will constantly be referring to these handouts in lectures.

· Textbook errata sheet: Be sure to go through the text and actually implement the errata or you will be confused down the road.

· Chapter 1

· Please download HW1 assignment from this Excel workbook. Note that mostly the problems are from the text but, as specified on the workbook, there are some changes to some of the problems.

· Note that HW1 is designed to cover only material that I will have covered in class through the lecture on Wednesday, 1/9/12. Because I will not know exactly what this material will be until class ends on Wednesday, there may be some adjustments to the assignment, which I will post very soon after class on Wednesday.

· This adjustment process will be true of *all * HW assignments. In general, I try to err on the side of initially assigning more rather than fewer problem on a given HW assignment. This means that any Wednesday after-class adjustments usually entail dropping problems. Dropped problems on any given HW assignment will show up as problems on the subsequent HW assignment.

Should you like to see what happens during the entire 317-318 course, you can access last year's web site here. Note that most of the links will not work, but you can still get an overview of what the course is like.

I'd like you to be circumspect in emailing questions to me. If you have a question that needs an urgent answer, then phone me, stop by, or email me. However, if the question can be answered by a TA, then please direct it to your TA or any TA. If the question can wait, ask someone during office hours, or raise the question in section or in class. Thanks.

This class will be highly Excel-based in that HW assignments, HW answer sheets, and Exam answer sheets will all be posted in the form of Excel workbooks. It is very, very strongly to your advantage to become proficient in Excel. Knowing Excel will allow you, for example, to do your HW assignments faster by at least a factor of 3. It is possible to do well in the course without learning Excel, but it will be considerably more difficult than if you do learn Excel.
