Higher-Order Cognitive Functions in Adulthood
1. Executive Functioning and Term Limits. What is executive functioning and how does it fare in adulthood?
Given its importance in complex decision-making and problem-solving, do you think there should be “term limits” for individuals in key decision-making roles such as political, religious, or business leaders?
Should there be mandatory intelligence testing of these individuals every few years as a condition of staying in the role? Why or why not? Using the key concepts from this chapter, explain your view.
2. Adult Learners at Work. Imagine that you are designing a program for adults over 40 for learning about a new system or process at your current or future place of employment.
Based on the research about how adults learn best, describe three specific instructional practices that you would build into your training program.
Provide enough detail and context so that other readers can envision what you will do, and why.

As you work your way through this capstone class, this is a good time to start exploring and organizing your thinking about the degree you’re almost finished with! This portfolio assignment is not something you would hand to a future employer, but is designed to help you collect your thoughts and practice some professional documents.
A completed assignment will be a PDF of the following documents (specific instructions below), assembled into one file:
1. Your most recently updated resume (or CV)
Resume or CV should include education, employment, and skills, and may also include sections for honors/awards, extracurricular or co-curricular activities, skills, and three individuals who can be contacted as references (including current contact info and how you know them). If it goes longer than 1 page, that’s okay for our purposes. Please be sure to reach out to the Career Development CenterLinks to an external site. if you need a template or more detailed support.
2. A cover letter (for a job) or statement of purpose (for a grad-school application)
Cover letter or Statement of Purpose should be a 1-2 page statement of why you are applying for the position (real positions that you may or may not actually consider applying for). Contents of this document must be truthful and reflect your actual interests and abilities. Depending on which type of document you do, different conventions are required. Feel free to search for examples or instructions online, and I have collected somelinks on my professional website

4. Link and description of one real graduate or professional school program (psychology or not, doesn’t matter) that you would actually consider applying for.

For Discussion Topic: 
Suppose that you are a high school guidance counselor and have been asked to prepare a set of 4 to 5 guidelines for students who want to work part-time. What would you recommend? Please use information in chapter 9 to support your guidelines. Respond to the question with no less than 200 words and one other classmate with no less than 150 word response. (I will attach one of my classmates responses for you to respond to after I have received my discussion post as I cannot view their responses until I submit my own so if possible please submit this first.) I included the response to my classmate word count (150) in the order so I am paying for that portion as well if you cannot complete the repsonse as discussed above please let me know so we can work something out together. I will attach my notes below which includes everything on chapter 9 so please review that section to help with this assignment. 
Your Own Morality Discussion- consider the following scenario: 
You are in the final exam of the final class you need to graduate from college. Your relatives are traveling out for your graduation this very afternoon. Your parents have made a lot of financial sacrifices to get you through school; your mom has even taken on a second job. Trouble is, you’ve struggled in this particular class. As you sit in front of the exam, you realize how little you actually know. You have your cell phone, your professor isn’t paying attention, and you know you could easily text your friend who aced this class last semester for some answers. Should you cheat via cell phone?
Based on what you would do, where do you fall in Kohlberg’s stages of moral development? In order not to embarrass anyone, please answer the question from the perspective of you would cheat and from the perspective of you wouldn’t cheat.
