Prep for MCQ

This semester I have two subjects using MCQ as part of its final assessments. Apart from having a go at its self-test quizzes on the OUM platform – I realized that we could also search for sample questions online. That was what I did for my Statistics in Psychology subject in Semester 5 and I was so amazed that some of the questions coming from these online sources appeared in our final test. At least 3 -4 questions bears resemblance to the format I came across online.

This Time…

I searched abnormal psychology and there were a few samples available with about 10-15 questions. There were more on this particular website. Although non of the questions appeared in the final exam, at least it gives me an inkling on which part of the subject I need to focus on.

Searching sample MCQ for the Professional Ethics paper is more tricky. The link below had a few questions I could try.

Either way, it is best to go through the questions in the e-weekly lessons and also the sample MCQ on the portal. The exam has ended. Technically, my semester has ended. I can start prepping for the next sem in 2 weeks time. As of now, I plan to read my storybooks. The TBR list is getting so long now.

Abnormal Psychology online textbook

My assignment for this subject required learners to discuss abnormal psychology based on three different textbooks. This is the list given by my e-tutor on the forum.

Even without Google, learners could actually access textbooks in e-book format using the digital library link in the portal. Using proper keywords, learners could find thousands of journals, articles, media and like I said, ebooks from the library. The digital library even has a feature that allows you to store your search results online, which I will put in another post.
