John is extremely helpful, knowledgeable and has a quirky sense of humor that makes class enjoyable. He is easy to approach and marks fairly. Would absolutely take another class with him in the future.

Interesting material. Main focus is on his own research and his methods and brings examples of his work to lectures. First midterm was cake but second was a bit tougher. Assignments are easy and iclicker questions are mandatory. Great prof and I wish I could take his lab session.

He gets caught up in technical details and seems more interested in methods than in theories and questions or their relevance to anything. Doesn't seem interested in psychology or in teaching. Exams and papers seem easy enough, and grades are not harsh but they are arbitrary and whimsical. Can't tell you what the right answer was or where you lost

The course is too boring so stay away but McDonald doesnt seem like a bad guy. The exams arent too bad.
