Students in PSY 2012 courses are required to participate in scientific research being conducted in the Psychology Department. This experience will expose students to research in a variety of psychological sub-disciplines, many of which will be discussed in class. Announcements and sign-ups will be posted on FIU's Sona Systems website located at http://fiu.sona-systems.com. Students are required to participate in 4 hours (or "credits") of research throughout the semester.
Important Things to Know:
* The deadline for participation is Monday, November 28, 2011.
* You must first create an account. To create an account on the Sona website go to the website (http://fiu.sona-systems.com) and click on the "Request a New Account" link under “New Participant?”. When prompted, enter your first and last name, and put your 7-digit Panther ID as your "User ID". Enter a valid email address (twice) and select the course(s) in which you are enrolled in the pull-down menu at the bottom. If you do not see a course listed, don’t worry--it may be added at a later time. IMPORTANT: If, by the end of the semester, you do not select the course you are enrolled in, then the credits that you accumulate for the semester will NOT be sent to your instructor and you will not receive credit for participating!!! Be sure to select the CORRECT section of the course (you are in PSY 2012, professor Yasmin LaRocca, section U01).
When you click the “Request Account” button, you will be (usually immediately) emailed a password to access the system. If you do not receive an email from “FIU Psychology Research Participation System” within 24 hours, it is highly likely that either (1) you did not provide a valid email address or (2) the registration email was blocked by your email system’s Junk Mail Filter. Check your email filters and make sure that you can receive emails from firstname.lastname@example.org .
