Winter 2021 - This class has a very similar format to Psych 133B so if you've taken that with Ankowski, there is a LOT of overlap in how it works. The grade breakdown is pretty simple. For participation, you need 5 points. You can get a point every time you go to an office hour with her or a TA, or when you make a post to the forums about something related to the lecture of that week. You also have 4 possible homework assignments based on lectures or videos, but usually they're also graded leniently and only your highest 3 scores count, so if you score perfect on the first 3 you don't need to do the 4th. There's also 5 quizzes with the lowest graded one dropped. 10 questions each that relate to either lecture material or the book, but the majority comes from lecture. All of it is open notes and very easy. The final is set up the same way with 50 M/C or T/F questions and is also relatively easy as well as open-notes. My only gripe with this class is that sometimes the lectures were recorded poorly and the audio got distorted, and that there was too much of the lectures to watch every week. We also were assigned to read chapters of the textbook corresponding to each week's lecture to prepare, but I never did that and instead just used CTRL + F for keywords on my quizzes and exams. You can find the textbook online somewhere; it's still important for the quizzes and final in this class. All in all, the content in this class and the way it is setup is really easy. Most students ended up with an easy A this quarter.
