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.

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.

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.

HORRIFIC class. Took during summer online and it was a nightmare. Professor is great, very understanding, but the exams are next to impossible. VERY specific questions and not nearly enough time to take them. You can take them twice which is good, but I could never get higher than a C, and I studied hard. Do yourself a favor and don't take online.

This class is awful! Everything I learned in Statistics, Statistical Methods in Psych and Research Methods all matched up. Her material? TOTALLY different. Unclear as to what she wanted us to do, horrible at teaching, never gets her point across and she ALWAYS questions her own math. Class average on Exam 1- A, Exam 2- D. Ummm...?

This professor is useless she never do anything. You go to her for help ,and the only thing she yell out is "try your your best . If I help you .I have to help all 200 students and that's not fair"! She is the worst professor ever if you need any help.Don't waste your time only if needed!

WORST professor I've had so far. Get ready to not only to the required work, but grade it too. 70-105 question quiz each week, that you can copy right out of the book BUT have to check your grade afterward. Constantly is updating paper and quiz grades for missing points and I guess not knowing the material...???? Wouldn't take again.

All I can say is avoid getting yourself into this mess. ABSOLUTELY NO prof involvement. The tests do not require any thought, just simple plagiarism. Completely retarded. I have over 157 credit hours, and this was pretty much the worst class I have ever taken. Her whopping 135 Question tests are a complete unnecessary headache for a 2000 levl class

I took her Dev. Psych class online-THE EASIEST CLASS I HAVE EVER TAKEN IN MY LIFE. Just read the chapter and the quizes are true and false and a few easy questions. There are also short response essay questions which are fairly easy-VERY VERY EASY CLASS

Took online research methods. If you read the book (word for word) and take good notes you will do well in this class. I got B's usually on the tests and a B on the reasearch paper and somehow still ended up with an A.

Phd. Professor who uses the textbook publisher's WebCT, several TAs, copies and pastes learning modules, DOESN'T GRADE A THING, the TAs do. Requires a lit. review of 8-10 pages, which is not read by her. Barely give examples and/or feedback. 150 question 'quizes,' 3 essay questions and a discussion and response. NOT WORTH TAKING. ****!

Taken online. Class was sorta difficult but I just hated what we had to learn in general.. Assignments were kinda tough but the teacher/TA's gave examples for them so it wasn't that bad.
