Shi is extremely inconsiderate and not understanding as a professor to say the least. She almost never respond to emails even with those emails addressing grading questions (she gives a one-week window for any questions related to grading and does not respond for a week, which is ridiculous). During this quarter there were still covid-related issues and concerns, Shi refused to record any live lectures even when most of the other classes still did.
Do not take this class with this professor. Do not pay attention to any reviews from covid-19. This class has changed drastically since moving to in-person. While the homework assignments are easy, they're only worth 10-20% of your grade (depending on which grading scheme works in your favor), while the midterm and final make up the remaining 80-90% of your grade which is completely insane considering how unfair the final is. The midterm was decent if you studied (pay careful attention to her worked out examples on the slides because these are what come up on the midterm) but the final was totally out of left field. I believe the average was around a D. The problems she asked us to solve were nothing like the homework problems or any of the worked-out examples on the slides, nor were they in the textbook either. No one finished the exam early and most people left the last few open-ended questions blank. I could have been given another week to study and still would have failed due to how unexpected the content was. She did curve the class but even with the curve I still had to fight for my life just to pass. Take it with miles or even alcocer if you can- her exams are too unpredictable.
Super easy!!! short homeworks, easy midterm and final project . she does not grade hard and for the two problem weekly homeworks the TA gives you the answers. highly highly recommend
This review is for Stats 101C since there's isn't a 101C page for her. I found her lectures to be very dry so I didn't go and just ended up reading the textbook which was far more helpful. Her class is pretty easy. The grading scheme is 25% homework, 35% midterm (24 hour take home), and 40% final exam project. The final exam project was a competition on Kaggle along with a project report. The grading on the homework and midterm were extremely lenient and I did good on all of those. However we never got a grade for our final exam and I somehow ended up with a B+. There were 6 homework assignments, each assignment being only 2-3 multipart problems but it was easy to do since the problems were from the textbook.
I think professor is nice. She recorded all the lectures and posted her slides so you don't need to go to class. I don't think I learned a lot in this class so I don't know if I'd take another class with her again.
