Level Change Requests - DEADLINE - Friday, Oct. 27th

Level drops will ONLY be allowed at the 3-week mark, the 6-week mark, and at semester. NO changes will be made at other times during the year. The 6 week drop has been adjusted slightly due to our late start.

Level drop procedures are listed below:

1. Level drops will ONLY be allowed at the 3-week mark, the 6-week mark, and at semester. NO changes will be made at other times during the year. The 6 week drop has been adjusted slightly due to our late start.

2. The 6-week level drop deadline is Friday September, 27th.
Students must submit forms to their House Counselor no later than 3:00 pm on September, 27th for the requested change to be made.

3. The level drop process begins with the teacher. Students do not ask their counselor for a level drop form. They must get one from the teacher only.*

*4. Parent - Teacher contact must be made to discuss the change in level before a drop form will be given to a student.

5. Students will also need to turn in textbooks for that class to the book room as mentioned on the form. 

Students can request a form at any time and may turn it into their counselor now. However, schedule changes will not be made until after the drop deadline

For this process, a level drop is considered a change from a 5.0 course to a 4.0 course. 

Students may move UP a level (from a 4.0 to a 5.0 course) at any time by requesting to see their counselor. We do advise that students do this as soon as possible so that they do not fall behind.

Students who do not change levels during this drop period must remain in the advanced course until the end of the first semester.

Unit 1 - Evolution of Psychology & Research Methods
  • Observation is the most important aspect of psychological research.
  • Operationalism means to define our variables in the manner in which we are going to measure them.
  • Correlation measures degree of relationship between variables and ranges from -1 to +1. Correlation does NOT imply causation.
  • Experimental, correlational, & descriptive methods all have strengths & weaknesses in describing human behavior.
  • Descriptive statistics describe the data gathered in research, while inferential statistics allow us to draw conclusions about how this data can be generalized to a larger population.
  • Following ethical principles is vitally important in any kind of psychological research.
