Department of Psychology at Illinois State University

Quantitative Professional Seminar

Schedule of Topics
for Spring, 2016

Tuesdays 3:30- 4:20 in DeGarmo Hall 48


Remember to complete speaker evaluation surveys on ReggieNet in a timely fashion. Feedback is due the following Tuesday at 3:30pm!

Articles and PowerPoint slides from previous semesters must now be accessed through ReggieNet. All future readings will also be distributed via ReggieNet. When an article is listed after a speaker, make sure you download the article from ReggieNet and read it prior to the presentation. Also, the schedule is duplicated in ReggieNet, and the article PDFs are linked on the schedule.

Students should note, however, that articles are typically included in the Spring semester when first-year students are presenting an article and leading discussion on that article and that articles are not typically included in the Fall semester when second-year students are presenting their thesis.

All students must submit one or two thought-provoking questions for each article presentation. The article being discussed must be read in advance, and your questions should be WORD-PROCESSED, printed, and brought to class. Students are expected to ask their questions during or after the presentation, unless they think of (even) better questions during the presentation.

Student grades will be determined through the quantity and quality of participation, the question submissions, and timeliness of feedback provided on ReggieNet for each topic and speaker.
