Quarter: Winter 2020
Grade: A+
June 20, 2020

I love Professor Clark! A lot of reviews say that she talks as if her students were babies, but I didn't feel that at all. I think she broke down the material into processable pieces, especially for introductory psychology students. This was my first time taking a psych class (ever), and it honestly made me more interested in the field.
She uses clickers for participation, meaning you have to attend lecture. Most of her clicker questions are based solely on participation, but there are a couple that are based on correctness. She does drop the 3 (or 4, I can't remember) lowest clicker scores, which is nice!
I found her midterm really easy. I made flashcards on all the key terms and studied them a couple days in advance, and I think I only missed one question. She had 30 multiple choice questions and two short response questions, but I found them quite fair. There is a significant emphasis on the studies/articles she assigns, so I would read those over before the tests. I also attended the review session, and that was a really nice refresher on all the general information that was going to be on the test.
Clark also uses Piazza to communicate with her students (other than email). I had never used Piazza before, so I found it a little tedious to use, but she did answer any questions that came up on that interface. I didn't use Piazza at all and attended TA office hours instead, which were super helpful. I would usually just go when a lab/article analysis was due, and the TAs would help check my answers and make sure that I hit all the gradable points.

Professor Clark is honestly so amazing and sweet. She talks about her dog (who is super cute) and always answered my questions. I would definitely take this class again!

Quarter: Winter 2019

April 2, 2019

Professor Clark is a likable, bubbly professor who is happy to be there teaching. The workload is definitely not too much. However, both the midterm and the final were unnecessarily difficult. I reread the slides (multiple times) and used quizlets, studied for multiple days, and still did really poor on both. In this class, you can't afford to do poorly on the midterm or final because they are SO heavily weighted, which I do not like. I got 100% on everything else (labs, clicker questions, quizzes) and still got a C+ in the class. Good luck with the testing, I don't know what else I could have done/studied to improve my score, but otherwise she is nice.

Professor Clark planned out the class very well and communicated it so you would always know what was due when, she was also very helpful if we had questions and there were lots of TA's in this class so there was always someone to ask a question to. Your grade is made up of a midterm, final, and a few individual and group labs as well as a few article analyses. Some of the work was a little tedious and boring but it is a super introductory course so it makes sense.

If I wasn't a lazy bum this quarter this class definitely should've been an easy A. Although her lectures are a little tedious and boring, Professor Clark is extremely reliable and helpful.

Note: Write down everything from her lectures - and actually watch them! (Don't be like me) and it'll be an A!

This class is super easy and guaranteed an A. She does kind of talk to us like we are children which I didn't really like. There is a lot of busywork, with every week having 2 lectures, either a quiz or an article analysis, and a lab. But they are very easy to get full points and the lowest one is dropped. The exams were pretty easy with little studying. They had multiple choice and 3 short answer questions (which were graded pretty easily). Overall, I would say write the definitions of everything she goes over, write the main takeaways from the labs and article analysis (she does test on those), and participate in your labs.

Very easy teacher that transitioned well online. She had a very organized grading scale with clear instructions and due dates. A good amount of work but none of it was difficult, just time consuming. The group projects over Zoom were more fun and easy than you would think. I overall really enjoyed her class and her concise Powerpoints and outlines. The lectures are mandatory, but you have until Sunday to complete them and they are super easy. She does a really good job making you feel like you have academic support at all times.

This class was truly amazing, and I can't recommend Professor Clark enough. She was funny and engaging, and would often tie psychological studies to the teaching methods she used in class (taking study breaks, how to review, etc.). Not only did she make every unit interesting, but she also taught us how to study better and provided a lot of resources for exams and projects. This class does have a moderate amount of work, but most if it is fairly easy if you follow along in the lectures. I found this class very informative and would definitely take it again if I could. (She also puts up pictures of dogs on breaks!!) Overall, Professor Clark is amazing, and if you have the chance to take this class, please do it.

I really enjoyed this class! The only reason I did not end up with an A is my own fault. I was taking some other tough classes and this GE was not my focus. I got a 96% on the midterm and got a little cocky and didn't study for the final not realizing how much the 72% I received would drop my grade.....
The material they cover is very much like AP psych if anyone ever took that in high school.

Professor Clark is also extremely accommodating and genuinely cares about her students. This was winter quarter of 2022 which is when we went back online for two weeks after winter break and there was all this confusion with covid protocols. But despite all the confusion, she made sure the class was manageable and accommodating to us. On a more personal note during winter break my hometown experienced a fire that demolished our community so starting school was the least of my priorities. Professor Clark was, again, super accommodating and made sure to check in with me on how I was doing and to see if I needed any help with the class materials. Overall she is a great professor but an even better person.
Take this class! 10/10

This is an okay introductory course. I would say that it all depends on how interested you are in Psychology itself. There are slides for each lecture and all lectures are recorded. There were no discussions for the course. The workload is very manageable as long as you don't procrastinate. DO NOT BUY PEOPLE'S NOTES!!!! The professor is very good at explaining information and has office hours. On top of that, there are so many TAs, we had around 8-10, so there is no need to buy a single thing for this class. Stay focused during the lectures as the professor quizzes and does exams according to how they speak in examples and material. Overall it's a decent class I just wasn't interested in the topic anymore after the class. I will always advise you to take the class for yourself as sometimes things reviewed won't apply to you. Best of luck!
