We used DCPIP to measure the amount of photosynthesis that took place during our experiment this week. What characteristic of DCPIP made this possible?a. DCPIP turns clear when mixed with intact and functional chloroplastsb. Photosynthesis is stopped by DCPIP because of its blue colorc. DCPIP is a detergent and therefore distrupts the lipid membraned.

Week 1: How to design jobs to enhance satisfaction and motivation: Job Characteristics ModelEach module’s Discussion Forum in this class has two topics – one for the first week and another for the second. In the Module 1 Discussion Forum be sure to post your responses using the background material, including the reading and video on the Job Characteristics Model. Here is a shorter synopsis of that material: Louis, D.J. (2016) Notes on the Job Characteristics Model.In week one, consider a job you have held that you did NOT find motivating. What job characteristics were missing? Look at another student’s post and suggest some ways that a manager could redesign that job to enhance one or more job characteristics and increase the motivating properties of that job. When someone has posted to your original job characteristics, go back and comment on whether or not the suggested changes would have made you feel more motivated. Why or why not? (Besides the source listed above, bring in and cite at least one other source of information for your initial post.)Remember, after you submit your answer to the Discussion this week, you also need to respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts. (In total for this module’s two-part Discussion Forum you should have contributed to at least two Discussion Question posts and four response posts to your classmates.) You MUST participate in BOTH Week 1 and Week 2 Discussions to get credit for this module’s Discussion Forum. Posting early each week will allow for more opportunities for leading the discussions, making substantial contributions, and engaging in meaningful and mutual discussions with others.Week 2: How to design jobs to enhance satisfaction and motivation: Job Characteristics ModelRead the following: Herzberg’s Motivation-Hygiene Theory.http://www.netmba.com/mgmt/ob/motivation/herzberg/ Herzberg’s Theory suggests that pay and benefits are not motivators, because they do not satisfy the worker (who doesn’t want more pay or vacation time?). However, they can cause dissatisfaction if not sufficient. Critically compare and contrast his theory to the Job Characteristics Model. For example: What factors leading to satisfaction (motivators) can be aligned with Job Characteristics or Critical Psychological States? Do you think any of Herzberg’s dis-satisfiers (hygiene factors) align with Job Characteristics or Critical Psychological States? Does this mean one or both of these theories is wrong?(Besides the source listed above, bring in and cite at least one other source of information for your initial post.) Remember, after you submit your answer to the Discussion this week, you also need to respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts. (In total for this module’s two-part Discussion Forum you should have contributed to at least two Discussion Question posts and four response posts to your classmates.) You MUST participate in BOTH Week 1 and Week 2 Discussions to get credit for this module’s Discussion Forum.
