Introductory Psychology


Departmental Policy on Research Participation


Students at Lakehead University can earn up to 6 bonus points to add to their final Intro Psych grade by participation in research or by writing one double-spaced page summary of a psychology article (1% per 1-hour-research-participation or per research-summary) or a combination of the two.


The Intro Psych student participation in psychological studies serves several purposes:

*        it offers a hands-on experience with psychological studies and the research protocol as opposed to reading about them in the text book,

*        the debriefing offers the student participants research information about the area that the study is examining and thereby expanding their psychological knowledge, 

*        the experience of participating in a psychological study offers them the unique perspective of what it means to be a participant and that would benefit the students later on when they design their own undergraduate thesis studies.


All research using the Introductory Psychology Pool is approved by the Psychology Department.
