October 8 Deadline

Please come to class WITH A PASSING score on your human subjects certification test.   Please do not leave this test for the last minute as it will take a few hours to complete. It is an online learning module with tests after each module.  After you complete the test, you are given a certificate (see sample to the left). You need to print out the actual certificate and come to class with it.  Hold on to this certificate.  It is good for three years. You can use it again later when you work as a research assistant with another faculty member here at John Jay.  This actual certificate submitted on this day of class will count as reading response #4 (4 points).
