Collaborative exam #1
Nice job on the independent tests. I hope you went back and reviewed the material afterwards. Always give your hippocampus a fighting chance.
Today I will be putting you into groups of three at 8a.m…. when our class/test starts. Work together and learn from each other. This is a closed book / closed note exam, but you will have three brains. By my calculations that’s about 2 and 1/2 brains to many for this task.
I have not released your independent tests yet becasue I want everyone to be equals during this collaborative process. The most poorly prepared participant may be able to explain a concept or two to the best prepared participants.
On Monday I’ll pass these exams back and I encourage you to get back together with your group and find the solutions to answers that evaded all of you. Remember we still have a final exam coming up.
My very favorite module is coming up. I believe we’ll have a lot of fun looking at memory. We’ll be doing lots of phenomenological work so come prepared to participate.
