PSY 355 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A
"Papers? More like novels" "Get ready to read" "Tests are tough"

The tests had questions that were very detailed. She didn't seem to care if we were doing well or learning. Lectures were very boring.

Dr. Reeves is a great professor. She's passionate about her work and really wants her students to succeed. Her exams are based on her lectures and the book, so go to class and do the readings. Her exams can be tough and wordy, but as long as you study and focus, you should be fine.

PSY304 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

GOOD: Interesting lecturer & subject matter. BAD: class is WAY harder than it should be. Tests on useless details & TA's are the only ones that respond to e-mails. Online quizzes are so tricky that there could sometimes be more than 1 answer; brought this up w TA and never heard anything back; that seems irresponsible

PSY305 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Intro to Cognitive Psychology- She is a great professor! She really knows what she is talking about. I hardly ever used the book; only her notes and managed to get a B. Attend class and you won't have trouble! She always made sure everyone understood the concepts and was willing to explain more if needed. I highly recommend this class.

Developmental Psych- She was very helpful. Had powerpoint slides for every class so we could print it out and write notes on. Topic was interesting already, but I've taken a class w/ her with a boring topic and she did a good job of making it interesting. Had 1 paper that fits our schedule.

PSY355 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Reeves did a good job making the best of a typically not as appealing subject. I, like most, did not have a burning passion for the field of cognition and was there for degree requirements but the class was definitely bearable. Her syllabus is all over the place but the work load is definitely reasonable once you figure out exactly what is required

psy309 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She will greatly penalize you for attendance. Even though there's WAYY too many people in one class she tries to pass a sign in sheet around which i found to be unbelievably ridiculous since it didnt always make its way around to everybody. if you even occasionally skip class, dont take reeves... you will regret it.

Really interested in what she's teaching, material is interesting too. Tests are kind of hard if you're not a studier like me. Read over my notes a day before the first test and failed. Keep up with the reading it'll keep you more prepared for tests. 2 papers grades them pretty easy!

Very sweet teacher, and works with you if you are having issues. Very eager to help! Don't necessarily agree with her attendance policy and how she cuts off grades. Although her notes are very long and detailed, they do really help for the test.

Psychology Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

She is an awesome professor who genuinely cares about the topic and your understanding of the topic. She takes her role as an educator seriously and does a lot to make learning in her class as easy as possible. She usually supplies good notes(not just an outline) so that you can actually listen in class without worrying about getting everything written down. I recommend this class. I had her for child psych and psych 301....both great classes.
