Note that even though this is a course in advanced psychological statistics, the texts I am using are appropriate for anyone in the social and behavioral sciences (i.e., education, psychology, sociology) who is interested in study beyond those concepts addressed in an introductory-level statistics course.  If you are interested in graduate school in any of these areas -- this course is very important!  In addition, it will focus on building critical thinking skills and help you think more along the lines of a scientist.

Syllabus - just a general version.  Not the current one.  If you are registered in my class, you can get a current copy from me or from the course website which is password protected. 


Getting into the Blackboard web site:

Please note:

Due to USI Computer Center system changes made over the winter break, all student Blackboard usernames and passwords have been changed. Beginning spring 2002, each student has a new Person ID assigned by the USI Computer Center. This ID will also be used as a student's username for Blackboard.

You can get your username from me or find your updated Blackboard usernames at the following Internet address:

Your Blackboard username will be the part of your USI email address before the @ symbol.  (I thought this is a change they had already made.)

Follow the protocol described below to determine their your initial password.

A student's initial password will be the following: The 8-digit number consisting of the last 4 digits of his/her SSN and his/her 4-digit birthday (month and day). So, if the SSN is 333-22-1111, and the birthday is on February 10, the initial password is 11110210.

Prior passwords have been overwritten; therefore, whatever passwords you used for fall term will not work. Each student will also need to update his/her email address and personal information preferences.
