Assessment Instructions

In Assessments 1–3, you completed three parts of a request for proposal (RFP) from a nearby school district that is seeking individuals or groups to design a training and professional development inservice day about the brain and mind from a biopsychological perspective for their educators. For this assessment, use the Assessment 4 Proposal Template (linked in the Resources) to create Part 4 of the RTF by connecting visual perception and face recognition to how understanding these two theories could help educators to be aware of ingrained biases.

Complete the following two sections:

X. Face Recognition

  1. Describe studies and theories that explain face recognition. Are people better at recognizing faces that are different or similar to their own? What does the research say about this?
  2. Analyze the neurological mechanisms that are involved, and explain why.

XI. Application of These Theories

  1. Connect face recognition theory to how this explains an educator’s own biases.
  2. Provide strategies or ways for educators to check their perceptions and face recognition biases when relating to students and parents, as well as when recalling information about students and a situation.
