Dr. Dunn has elected to use journal articles, rather than a textbook, in her undergraduate social psychology course. See the table below for the mean ratings of interest and clarity for each article, as rated by the students. Blank responses, ‘0’ responses and responses outside of the scale were excluded from analysis.

Interest Scale: 4 = Very Interesting, 3 = Fairly Interesting, 2 = Fairly Boring, 1 = Very Boring, 0 = Haven’t Read

Clarity Scale: 4 = Very Clear, 3 = Fairly Clear, 2 = Fairly Confusing, 1 = Very Confusing, 0 = Haven’t Read
