|A Great Semester!
Thanks for a great semester! I hope that you enjoyed class and learned a little something along the way.
Erika pointed out that the number of points listed on the syllabus was incorrect. The grading scale was based on 550 points when in fact there are 640 points in the class. I have keep the same percentage cutoffs -- 93 to 100% an A, 90 to 92% an A-, and 87 to 89% a B+. Who wants their teacher evaluations back?

I hope that you find this class as interesting as I find cognitive science. Cognitive psychology and cognitive science is fascinating because they cover such a broad range of topics -- perception, memory, attention, problem solving, creativity, to name a few -- and they offer both theoretical insights into the workings of the human mind and practical implications for both clinical psychologists and human factor psychologists.
