As you know, the Advanced Placement (AP) Psychology exam involves 100 multiple-choice questions and two free response essay questions. The goal of the exam is to accurately measure knowledge of psychological concepts and to communicate to colleges which students would most likely succeed in a college-level psychology course. Each year, few students receive composite scores of 1 and 5, and more students receive scores of 2, 3, or 4. Use the following terms to describe how the College Board most likely developed and evaluates the AP Psychology exam. • Recognition • Recall • Standardization • Normal curve • Reliability (test-retest reliability or split-half reliability) • Content validity • Predictive validity
Francis Sumner When spoken of, Francis Cecil Sumner is considered the ‘First’. Sumner was the first African American male psychologist; he was called Father of Black Psychology.

Sumner is known to many as the ‘Father of Black Psychology’. Sumner was born in a segregated community, didn’t have an education pass junior high, and was looked down upon because he was black.

3. A. Statistics are often used to describe and interpret the results of intelligence testing. • Describe three measures of central tendency (mean, median, and mode). • Describe a skewed distribution. • Relate the three measures of central tendency to a normal distribution • Relate the three measures of central tendency to a positively skewed distribution. • An intelligence test for which the scores are normally distributed has a mean of 100 and a standard deviation of 15. Use this information to describe how the scores are distributed.

Lawrence fiddled with a toy while listening to the radio. After the broadcast was over, he softly mumbled something, though he generally kept to himself. I listened closely since his autism typically prevented Lawrence from stringing even two words together. He had recited the entire radio program, virtually word for word, even mimicking the tone of the broadcaster's voice. My jaw dropped. At that moment I knew that I wanted to learn more about Lawrence’s autism condition so that I could help him grow, but I also hoped to dedicate myself to studying the brain both from a physiological and psychological standpoint.
APA Format: What Does It Mean? Almost every KGSM written assignment specifies that the paper conform to APA style. But no one really knows what this means. At the very least, the requirement could be that references be cited as described in the APA manual. But APA style involves a lot more.

My best advice for what to do in other classes is to ask the professor.

Fig. __ Feed-forward projections from the eyes to the brain and topographic mapping. In each eye the visual field on the left and right of the fovea (the cut goes right through the fovea!) projects to different cortical hemispheres: the ipsilateral retina projects to the ipsilateral visual cortex, and the contralateral retina crosses the contralateral cortex (hemifield crossing in the optic chiasma). The first synapse of the retinal ganglion cells is in the lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN), but information from the left (L) and right (R) eye remains strictly separated. The LGN consists of six layers, layers 1 and 2 are primarily occupied by the magnocellular pathway, and 3–6 by the parvocellular. Information from both eyes comes first together
