Laboratory in Cognitive Psychology
Fall 2021 - Professor Cheng definitely cares about her students and wants to make sure we're prepared and capable of completing the final project, but sometimes her advice/insights/notes on these projects are difficult to understand. My group initially thought we had a solid experiment idea and Professor Cheng approved it, then later on she discouraged us from our method and tried to steer our project in a different direction, so it would've been nice to have clearer expectations before committing to a study design. The nice aspect of this class is that you're given a lot of freedom to brainstorm experiment ideas and conduct your own study (within the limitations of the class), and the workload isn't too bad as long as your group splits the work equally. There's also no exams! Overall, it's a decent class and a good introduction to the experimental process
Prof. Firstenberg is amazing. Her lectures were so interesting that I literally didn't want class to end an hour early (which it did without fail). The test is straightforward and she's really lenient with the projects. I learned so much in this class, and I would recommend it to everyone.
