AbstractThe author offers a method th resolve the conflict between the American Psychological Association (APA) Ethical Standard that instructors cannot require students to disclose personal information in class-related activities, and the APA learning goal for undergraduate psychology students is that they reflect on their experiences to develop insight into their behavior and mental processes. The author suggests having students convert papers that involve self-reflection into anonymous, unreadable papers before submitting them to solve this conflict.
