No textbook! Alternates every week with either a quiz or a short written assignment due online (each worth 10%) based on readings that aren't cumulative for next quiz/assignment. Fun, informative lectures. Final essay is "what did you learn". Breakdown: Best 8/10 quizzes or assignments (80%), final essay (17%), research participation (3%)

I would recommend this class to everyone! It was very interesting and fairly easy as long as you keep up with the readings, that he writes himself (much easier to understand and follow along). If you don't want to read them, you just have to attend his class where he presents them. The quizzes/short answer questions were easy! I loved the class!

Personality, with Dr. McGregor, was one of the most interesting and enjoyable courses I have ever taken. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is seriously considering getting into the field of psychology.

Amazing! he has his own spin on his class with his own personal outlook on the class and the material so he DOES NOT USE A TEXTBOOK he posts all his readings that he wrote on moodle, usually 20-30p. really clear. NO EXAM. class is made up of on line responses, bi-weekly quizzes and 1 final essay (not hard) worth 17%. TAKE THIS CLASS ! (:

He is honestly an amazing prof. He not only makes the material clear and relatively simple, he also makes it extremely interesting by relating it to your own life. The self-reflection involved in the course is very rewarding. His class was worth coming to at 8:30, he's always enthusiastic and super nice. Definitely would take another class with him

I thought his tests were confusing. Beaware when your taking his classes he likes to post his tests on the overhead and is generally a big distraction. He makes tests confusing and I think he writes his own material for students to read and gives pdfs not books. Overall hard class and alot of reading, memorizing and understanding.

Professor MacGregor is very funny and very interesting to listen to. He's a really nice guy :) BUT, I thought his lectures were vague and did not really cover the material on the quizzes (there are 5 quizzes) and the quiz questions were too broad for the multiple choice format. His lectures are worth waking up early for, though! :)

Awesome prof! He's super nice, interesting, and funny. You could tell he's passionate which makes his lectures more interesting. Best part, we don't need to buy textbooks, he writes up his own summaries and uploads them to moodle. Quizzes/assignments are easy!

An extremely relevant course no matter what your major is. Highly thought provoking and introspective. His ability to relate class material to everyday life is masterful. Take his course, you will not be disappointed.

Ian McGregor is the Man. Without a doubt he was the best professor that I've ever had. He makes the material come alive and easy to digest. He is also easy to approach.
