Please stay away from the doctoral program in Ed. Psych. Every last one of them is useless and rude. Markman is the leader of the rude parade.

EER 7630 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Do not take this guy. Although psychologists learn statistics, they should not teach it. Leave it to the specialists. Perhaps an EER prof should teacher an EER class, not an EDP prof. If you want to learn stats the right way, don't take it with Markman, he's terrible. Not an effective teacher. One word to describe him: Supercilious.

Dr.Markman is an incredible Professor! He uses real life examples so that students can learn the material much more easily. It's a terminology course so you as a student will be expected to learn about 260 definitions. Attendance is not mandatory but a lot of questions on his test come directly from the lectures so PLEASE ATTEND all the lectures.

Great sense of humor, but it doesnt take away from the fact that this man means BUSINESS!!!! You need to come to EVERY class, and you need to take EXCELLENT notes because you will NOT be allowed to use a taperecorder.Good luck. I withdrew a week before finals.

What many others are saying is true. He teaches statistics well, but I would still recommend staying away from the doctoral program in Ed. Psych. At that level, he and the others are useless and even rude.

Do not go to WSU for your doctorate in Ed Psych. There are no professional development opportunities there. Choose another university where there are professors who are conducting research currently. Everything is a big ordeal from getting a form signed to it getting sent to the correct department.

Dr. Markman is an awesome teacher with a wonderfully dry sense of humor. He is very knowledgeable, but he also has the teaching ability to make the material accessible with real life examples and applications. I had to study really hard and take a ton of notes, but it paid off.

He really tries to make a difficult and unappealing subject interesting. Not the most patient man, you ask or answer questions at the risk of sounding and looking dumb.He does manage to contain his comments though.I am totally clueless with numbers so the fact that I actually passed this course at all is a testament to his ability.

Class would be better if he had a sense of humor. Fairly attractive, kind of reminds me of sexy Walter Cronkite
