Metody i kryteria oceniania: (tylko po angielsku)

During the module students will work individually on psychological

assessment assignment. Students' task will be first to conduct and analyze

a 20-minute interview with a colleague from the group aimed at

understanding a particular aspect of colleague’s life. Than students will be

asked to evaluate their diagnostic activity during the interview (e.g.

determine the best and worst part of their activity, indicate moments of

empathic response, proper use of paraphrases and open questions, and

improve the errors committed during the interview), analyze obtained

data and finally prepare feedback and deliver it to the colleague. Detailed

guidelines and requirements for the assignment will be given during the

workshop. Psychological assessment assignment should be handed in no

later than on Workshop 14 in print. Handing in assignment after the

deadline will lower the grade. For every day of a delay, you will receive

two points less. Assignments handed in more than two weeks after the

deadline will not be checked and graded, what is equal with failing the

workshop.

Max points for this assignment is 60

Three additional pieces of homework will be given during the course. Each

homework is 10 points

Positively evaluated, active participation during the classes (that is

preparation, asking questions, critical thinking, participation in conducted

exercises and discussions) is rewarded with additional 10 points.

Students are supposed to prepare the readings home and workshops will

include discussions to which preparation is needed. Please read the

literature for each class. If the class does not read the literature well

enough to participate in class discussions, the tutor has right to perform

unannounced tests of knowledge from the readings. Points from the

unannounced tests will be included into participation points.

Three home assignments =3 x 10 points

Active participation = 10 points

MAX = 100 points

Needed to pass = 60 points

Attendance rules

Not more than 2 excused or unexcused absences allowed. An excused

absence means that the student has a documented excuse substantiated

by for instance a medical note. In case of the third absence it can only be

an excused one and it results in an additional assignment. Having more

than 3 absences means failing the class.
