DEP3464 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: B+

Straightforward course of 3 tests (75%), 4 assignments (25%)which were a syllabus quiz and 3 short commentary on TedX talks - loved that! HOWEVER, the 4 chapter 60 question tests are full of ?s that are either poorly written or weren't covered in the text. My 1st B in a psych class - got an A in statistical AND research methods! Very disappointing!

DEP2004c Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

This was a well organized online course. I took it during the summer so the work load was not bad. The class is straightforward. No one should fail. However I do recommend getting an e-text of the book so that you can find answers for the test faster.

Fantastic course-the organizational aspect of the online course must have improved because this isn't a hard course to navigate. Exams aren't easy, but you get to take them twice (not the same questions). I noticed some questions weren't from the current edition of the textbook-annoying. Discussion posts and papers are simple. Not a lot of work.

She does not organize her online class well. Things are disorganized and expectations are not clearly given. Once you figure out tasking, the tasks are simple but her requirements for full-credit are misconstured throughout the multiple online folders. Should be much more straight-forward than it is.

DEP3464 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

The organziation of the class was awful. Everything is hard to find. Discussion expectations aren't clearly given. She never returns emails and neither do the TAs. Papers were easy but tests were beyond hard. Unless you have photographic memory don't bother taking this course.

DEP3464 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Students had many questions posted in the discussion boards and she would not answer. Tests cover 4 chapters each with minimal review material. Review was typically 5 of 60 questions. Completely self study course. If you don't have HOURS to devote to it, take someone else.

Loved the layout of the course. Worked well with other online courses. Allowed me to pace out my schedule quite nicely. Clear syllabus and grading rubic. I made an A+ in the class.

The class is opened 5 chapters at a time. Which means the tests are monsters! She gives you 2 attempts (2 different tests) but even still, never received better than a B-. Did not like the organization of this class at all! Doesn't return emails!

Run. Tests are ridiculous. You have 1 minute per question and each question is very detailed. 4 tests, 2 small papers and 10 page paper. The papers I don't mind, but when you study your butt off and get a C on the test, it just ruins the class. Take someone else or don't take the class.
