How can I access the textbook?

You can set up access to the textbook through the course Sakai page. The total cost of the E-book and InQuizitive platform are $49.95 (you do NOT need the version with ZAPS).

What are InQuizitive quizzes?

It is important to us that you get a feel for all that Psychology has to offer, but there is only so much content that can be covered during lecture time. Although your textbook will overlap a lot with content covered in lecture, there is some interesting and important content in the textbook that we don’t have time to cover in class. To help you master this material on your own, each chapter includes InQuizitive quizzes that will allow you to test your understanding of the material. This will help you both learn the material and be more prepared for exams. We encourage you to complete the InQuizitive quizzes soon after completing the readings. The deadlines for InQuizitive quizzes are listed on the course calendar but are nearly always Tuesdays at 11:59pm EST.

How am I graded on the quizzes?

Each InQuizitive quiz has a target “score” that must be met before the quiz is considered “complete.” However, once complete, you will be awarded 100% for the quiz. InQuizitive quizzes are worth 20% of your section grade and an easy way to boost your grade, prepare for exams, and stay on track with your reading assignments.

When are readings and quizzes due?

Look at the tabs for weekly lessons on the left-hand side of Sakai to find your weekly reading assignments and quiz deadlines. Students may complete textbook readings either before or after the corresponding lecture--do what works best for you! The due dates for quizzes are typically Tuesday at 11:59pm EST unless otherwise noted. Deadlines are strictly enforced and can only be extended for major illness and emergency (requiring a STINF or dean’s excuse). Whatever score students have earned by the deadline is the score that will be recorded.
