Psychology M9: POST ASSESSMENT

MONDAY'S MESSAGE

Good morning, fellow student Psychologists. Guess what? You have hit the 3/4 point in your online class. There is a light to see at the end of this tunnel. If this class were a day at school, you would be in about the 7th period daydreaming about what you were going to do at McDonalds afterschool or what team you were going to beat in soccer. Today is also test day so let's not forget that.

TODAY'S GOALS:

1. Now that you have completed all the practice and assignments for module 9, you will use your knowledge and understanding of Motivation and Emotion to take this Test. You will have some multiple choice questions and a constructed response question. This should be done without notes or other resources open on your computer. Make sure to review the APA guidelines on ethics to prepare for your constructed response question. The NCVPS policy on Academic Integrity is to be maintained.

SHOUT OUT:

to Michael W. and his Riverside High School lacrosse team in Durham, NC who won their first game of the season. Michael plays goalie and had his first shut-out of his career.

PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT

When it comes to motivation, nothing may be as effective as much as music. Check out a song that motivated me when I was your age (and still does). If you've seen the movie Creed, you'll know what I'm talking about. It also fits in with the theories of motivations we studied. It's also a cool song to get you psyched to take our test today.


1. Instinct: When Creed gets punched, it's instinctual to want to defend yourself.

2. Incentive: Creed wanted to make his dad proud.

3. Operant Conditiing: Creed forms connections between training, working out and winning.

4. Arousal Theory: There is something about this song that gets the endorphins going.
