Sports Psychology Power Point
Congratulations. You have been asked to create an MS PowerPoint presentation (i.e., Week 7 assignment) in order to educate youth sport coaches and/or strength and conditioning coaches about sport psychology.
Suggestion – select a specific topic of interest, which is presented in our PSYC460 assigned readings. Examples include: Goal Setting, Imagery, Stress Management, Group Cohesion, or Exercise Adherence.
Create a MS PowerPoint (PPT) presentation and include notes within the presentation. The Notes section should be the script you will use for your presentation such that if you were unable to make the presentation, someone else could present the information by reading what you’ve written in the Notes section. Additional Information re: MS PPT Notes is discussed later in the assignment’s instructions.
The Sport Psychology presentation must be at least 10 slides in length (not including the title and reference slides) and include components such as the following:
Table of Contents
Primary Topic of Presentation
Introduction of Presentation’s Main Objective(s)
Identify and Define Important Psychological Concept(s) associated with Presentation’s Objectives
Explain how these Psychological Concept(s) can influence athletic performance (cite information from at least three (3) academic publications [i.e., journals – (e.g., The Sport Psychologist, Journal of Sport and Exercise Psychology)]. — Suggestion – You can use the APUS Library (see “APUS Library” on PSYC460 home page) in order to locate scholarly publications (e.g., academic journals). “SPORTDiscus with Full Text” can be a useful database when completing your literature search.
Present one (1) web link for a video pertaining to Psychological Concept(s) discussed in presentation. — When identifying the video in the presentation, just insert the web link on the slide. APUS has size restrictions on uploads, and incorporating the video into the presentation will often make the PPT too large.
Identify an activity, which individuals can complete during this presentation in order to gain knowledge about Psychological Concept(s) discussed.
References (as well as in-text citations should be displayed in APA format). In-text citations may be included within the Notes section of each slide. Information re: American Psychological Association (APA) format is presented in this course’s Resources or www.apastyle.org. Also, a suggestion – visit the APUS Library to review Writing@APUS (see “APUS Library” tab located on left side of course’s home page).
Please be sure to review the MS PowerPoint do’s and don’ts document (see attachment). Remember, the MS PowerPoint must include a Notes section.
Additional Information re: Notes section:
Notes are placed on the same slide (i.e., beneath) information being presented pertaining to a specific area (e.g., Introduction). See “Click to add notes” at bottom of slide – notes will be placed in this area. Suggestion – use MS PPT “help” to review instructions for inserting “speaker notes” using your specific version of MS PPT.
If Notes are not included within the same slide, a 10-point deduction will be assessed prior to reviewing a student’s submission.

Please review “More Tools” (see tabs on left side of course’s home page) to review policies concerning Plagiarism.
Please submit your assignment as an attachment (in an MS PPT ppt. or MS PPT pptx. file format) titled “Your Last Name Week 7 Assignment.” For example, the MS PowerPoint file would be titled: Johnson Week 7 Assignment. Avoid typing your entire assignment in the text box provided within each assignment.
ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE CLASS
Discussion Questions (DQ)
Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked, include a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words.
Successful responses are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion, well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source.
One or two sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words.
I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your responses.
Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately.
In addition to the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three replies.
Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite someone else’s work).
Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week.
APA Format and Writing Quality
Familiarize yourself with APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required).
Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation.
I highly recommend using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.
Use of Direct Quotes
I discourage overutilization of direct quotes in DQs and assignments at the Masters’ level and deduct points accordingly.
As Masters’ level students, it is important that you be able to critically analyze and interpret information from journal articles and other resources. Simply restating someone else’s words does not demonstrate an understanding of the content or critical analysis of the content.
It is best to paraphrase content and cite your source.
For assignments that need to be submitted to LopesWrite, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me.
Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes.
Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own?
Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.
The university’s policy on late assignments is 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ replies.
Please communicate with me if you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I am happy to be flexible, with advance notice. We may be able to work out an extension based on extenuating circumstances.
If you do not communicate with me before submitting an assignment late, the GCU late policy will be in effect.
I do not accept assignments that are two or more weeks late unless we have worked out an extension.
As per policy, no assignments are accepted after the last day of class. Any assignment submitted after midnight on the last day of class will not be accepted for grading.
Communication is so very important. There are multiple ways to communicate with me: Questions to Instructor Forum: This is a great place to ask course content or assignment questions. If you have a question, there is a good chance one of your peers does as well. This is a public forum for the class.
Individual Forum: This is a private forum to ask me questions or send me messages. This will be checked at least once every 24 hours.
