Psychology Community Portal
Welcome – From the Editor
Welcome to the MERLOT Psychology Portal! The Psychology collection provides access to nearly 20 different types of materials (including online texts and online courses) across 15 psychology disciplines. The MERLOT Psychology Editorial Board manages the collection and oversees a peer review process that evaluates the applicability of the materials within the collection. We invite you to explore all that our collection has to offer. Our Board strives to review every Learning Object (LO) submitted for review. We have a multi-level review process for each LO, and use a standardized review form in assessing all LOs submitted to the Psychology collection.

Test My Brain is a website composed of five different online cognitive assessments for the purpose of engaging the public in psychology research. The primary purpose of the site is to allow participants to be involved in the scientific process by explaining after each assessment the results and significance of the studies, in addition to collecting data. It can be used as an online supplement to a research/methods course aimed at learning about human subject studies.
Each group of studies is associated with a research participant information sheet that explains the objective of the research and confirms Human Subjects approval. Participants will be provided feedback and will be able to view their results in comparison to those of others. The assessments address attention, memory, and problem solving.
