Summer 2021 PASS Schedule

Below you will find more information on sessions held for each individual course.

PSYC 1010 6.00 – Introduction to Psychology

Section A – Taylor Alves

Thursdays and Fridays • 12:00pm – 2:00pm EDT

“Write out a study plan and break the material into chunks to study each day. Do not cram! Set a realistic schedule and give yourself enough time to review the material without rushing it. This helps you have lots of time to study and go over the material without feeling overwhelmed!”

PSYC 2022 3.00 – Statistical Methods II

Section M – Gary Bold

Tuesdays and Thursdays, 6:00pm - 8:00pm EDT

“1) Don't neglect the theory. You need to understand how concepts connect to each other. How does ‘Sample Size’ affect ‘the likelihood of rejecting the null’ or how does ‘Variability’ affect ‘Effect Size’ 2) The real trick is to learn the ‘recipe’. Develop a method for solving the problems, break it down by small steps. Then it comes down to practice, practice, practice. A useful resource is the Freedom App/Program (https://freedom.to/). It is designed to block problematic websites for a specified time (i.e. 25min Pomodoro) so you can get work done with no distractions.
