animals) know their world, act in their world, and pass from knowledge to action;
4. Recognize and comparatively evaluate the current competing perspectives
representing physiological, experiential, psychodynamic, cognitive, personality,

Assessment Details
Weekly Quizzes
During the course you will be responsible for completing 4 online quizzes. Each quiz will consist
of 10 multiple choice questions. You can take a quiz anytime during the week it is offered;
however, you will only have one chance to answer the questions. Questions will be presented to
you one at a time and once a question is answered you will not be able to go back, so ensure that
you are satisfied with your response before moving forward. Answers to the questions will be
revealed to you on the Monday after each quiz closes.
Graded Discussions
During the course you will be responsible for contributing to 5 graded online discussions. You
will be randomly assigned to a discussion group during Week 1 and will work with your group
members during these online discussions. The discussion assignments are designed to help you
in developing your critical thinking skills, as well as giving you opportunities to use research to
support your ideas to our various topics in psychology.
For Graded Discussions 1, 4, and 6, you will be required to make a minimum of 2 quality posts
per weekly assignment (i.e., your own original post, as well as at least one reply/exchange with
Last Revised April 13, 2021
Page 7 of 16
one of your group members). You will be marked on your original postings, as well as on the
replies and exchanges with your fellow group members.
For Graded Discussions 2 and 3, you will be working together with your group members to
create one overall group assignment post. Thus, the group will need to communicate with each
other from the beginning of the week in order to accomplish the submission together by the end
of the week. Each group member that participates in assignment 2 and 3 will receive the same
grade (i.e., out of 5%).
Final Assignment
For the final research assignment, you will be asked to show your level of competence as a group
in understanding psychological disorders and treatment. As this is a group assignment, and as
you will each share the same mark, it is important that the group works as a team and shares
responsibilities equally among all group members.
You will be provided with a case study and will be asked to research and discuss content in 3
separate areas:
1. Diagnostic Features/Differential Diagnosis;
2. Cultural/Gender and Social/Environmental Factors; and
3. Paradigm & Treatment Methods.
You will also be asked to write an introduction and conclusion for the assignment.
The assignment must be no more than 5-6 double spaced typed pages (12-point font) excluding
the title page and references. You must have at least 3 scholarly, peer reviewed, journal
references in your research assignment (e.g., American Psychologist, Psychological Bulletin).
They must be current (i.e., within the past 10 years). The assignment must be in APA style.
Online Final Exam
All final exams are 2 hours in length and will be scheduled by Registrarial Services. To find out
when your final exam is scheduled, visit Final Exam Information on the University of GuelphHumber website. Select Content on the navbar to locate Assessments in the table of contents
panel to review further details of the final exam.
This course requires the use of Respondus LockDown Browser and Monitor (webcam) to proctor
your online final exam within CourseLink. Use of Lockdown Browser with a webcam has been
implemented to maintain the academic integrity of the final exam. You must download and
install LockDown Browser and Monitor to complete the practice test and final exam. While
writing the practice test and final exam, you must show your University of Guelph-Humber
student ID card during the Respondus Startup Sequence.
Similar to a sit-down exam where you must arrive prior to the start of the exam, it is highly
recommended that you enter the online exam environment in Respondus at least 20-30 minutes
before the end of the available window to allow enough time for you to complete the Respondus
Startup Sequence and ensure that you have the full two hours for the exam.

Please be sure to review the Using Respondus Lockdown Browser and Monitor instructions by
selecting Content on the navbar to locate Assessments in the table of contents panel.

University of Guelph-Humber Academic Regulations and Policies
Academic Integrity / Academic Honesty
Academic misconduct is behaviour that erodes the basis of mutual trust on which scholarly
exchanges commonly rest, undermines the University's exercise of its responsibility to evaluate
students' academic achievements, or restricts the University's ability to accomplish its learning
objectives.
The University takes a serious view of academic misconduct and will severely penalize students,
faculty and staff who are found guilty of offences associated with misappropriation of others'
work, misrepresentation of personal performance and fraud, improper access to scholarly
resources, and obstructing others in pursuit of their academic endeavours. In addition to this
policy, the University has adopted a number of policies that govern such offences, including the
policies on Misconduct in Research and Scholarship and the Student Rights and Responsibilities
regulations. These policies will be strictly enforced.
It is the responsibility of the University, its faculty, students and staff to be aware of what
constitutes academic misconduct and to do as much as possible through establishment and use of
policies and preventive procedures to limit the likelihood of offences occurring. Furthermore,
individual members of the University community have the specific responsibility of initiating
appropriate action in all instances where academic misconduct is believed to have taken place.
This responsibility includes reporting such offences when they occur and making one's
disapproval of such behaviour obvious.
University of Guelph-Humber students have the responsibility of abiding by the University's
policy on academic misconduct regardless of their location of study; faculty, staff and students
have the responsibility of supporting an environment that discourages misconduct. Students
should also be aware that if they find their academic performance affected by medical,
psychological or compassionate circumstances, they should inform the appropriate individuals,
(instructors, Academic Advisor) and follow the available procedures for academic consideration
outlined in the University's calendar.
Students are encouraged to review the Academic Misconduct policy, as stated within the
University of Guelph-Humber Undergraduate Calendar.
https://www.uoguelph.ca/registrar/calendars/guelphhumber/current/c07/c07-amisconduct.shtml
Accessibility
The University of Guelph-Humber is committed to creating a barrier-free environment.
Providing services for students is a shared responsibility among students, faculty and
administrators. This relationship is based on respect of individual rights, the dignity of the
individual and the University community's shared commitment to an open and supportive
learning environment.
Last Revised April 13, 2021

Students requiring service or accommodation, whether due to an identified, ongoing disability or
a short-term disability should contact Accessibility Services as soon as possible. For more
information, contact the Student Wellness and Accessibility Centre at Humber College.
http://humber.ca/student-life/swac/accessible-learning
Grading Procedures
Feedback to students on work completed or in progress is an integral part of teaching and
learning in that it allows students to measure their understanding of material and their progress
on learning objectives. Feedback often goes beyond grading-an indication of the standard
achieved-to include comments on the particular strengths and weaknesses of a student's
performance. While the nature and frequency of such feedback will vary with the course, the
University of Guelph is committed to providing students with appropriate and timely feedback
on their work. Instructors must provide meaningful and constructive feedback, at minimum
20% of the final course grade, prior to the 40th class day. For courses which are of shorter
duration, 20% of the final grade must be provided two-thirds of the way through the
course. This may include but is not exclusive to returning papers, assignments, in-class or
laboratory quizzes, laboratory reports, or mid-term examinations prior to the 40th class day. In
research and independent study courses, instructors must provide students with a realistic idea of
their performance by discussing progress directly with the student and, if necessary, identify
specific areas for improvement. This may include the assessment of a research plan, literature
review, annotated bibliography, oral presentation or other assessment tools.
When You Cannot Meet Course Requirements
When you find yourself unable to meet an in-course requirement due to illness or compassionate
reasons, please advise your course instructor (or designated person such as a teaching assistant)
in writing, with your name, ID number and email contact.
Review the University of Guelph-Humber Calendar for information on regulations and
procedures for Academic Consideration.
https://www.uoguelph.ca/registrar/calendars/guelphhumber/current/c07/sec_d0e2597.shtml
Missed Final Exams / Deferred Privileges
When students do not write a required final examination, complete a final assignment, or
complete a work term report prior to the last class date, they must request Academic
Consideration to be considered for a deferred privilege. When granted, a deferred privilege
allows a student the opportunity to complete the final course requirements after the end of the
semester, but during established timelines.
Please note that faculty members do not grant deferred privileges. Faculty can only grant
academic consideration for work that is due during the semester and cannot grant extensions
beyond their deadline for submission of final grades.
Last Revised April 13, 2021
Page 14 of 16
The nature of the deferred privilege may take the form of either a deferred condition or a
deferred examination. The Admissions and Academic Review Sub-Committee grants deferred
privileges on the basis of medical, psychological or compassionate consideration. Please see
your Admission and Program advisor for details.
It is the student’s responsibility to be familiar with the institution’s policies and Academic
Regulations, which can be found on the University of Guelph-Humber website.
https://www.guelphhumber.ca/registrar/policies
Plagiarism Detection Software
NOTE: The University of Guelph-Humber Undergraduate Calendar states:
“Students need to remain aware that instructors have access to and the right to use electronic
and other means of detection.”
Accordingly, instructors may decide to use originality checking services, such as Turnitin.com,
and invigilation software to ensure that submitted work conforms to the university’s Academic
Misconduct policy. The instructor will notify students of such requirements in advance. More
information on Academic Misconduct is included below in this outline.
