I will put it this way. You can kill yourself with another professor for 127a or you can take Dr. Chorpita's 127c and get an A. I looked forward to class every day. Unlike other professors in psych, this class actually tests your direct knowledge without trying to trip you up maliciously on exams. Dr. Chorpita is exactly what a professor should be. Fascinating, hilarious, engaging and FAIR.
Spring 2021 - Given the online and open book exam nature of the class, Psych 127C with Chorpita was a breeze. Chorpita is a very approachable and knowledgeable professor, and he definitely presented the material in a way that was easy for us students to comprehend. There were 5 quizzes throughout the quarter with add up to 20% of your grade, but he drops your lowest score which is a plus. The midterm is 35% of your grade while the final is 40%, and the last 5% are for participation. The quizzes and exams weren't difficult at all, but I will admit that there were some tricky questions. Just be sure to really understand what each question is asking and be careful about the exact wording of multiple choice options. There would definitely be more to memorize similar to most classes if the exams weren't open book, but I would definitely recommend taking Chorpita in-person!
