The lectures were quite boring but since the class is so easy, it's easy to start day dreaming and then snap back into lecture and not have missed much. The lab sessions were definitely where you needed to pay attention to detail since we learned how to utilize the jamovi software. Professor Du was kind and attentive to her students and has three grading methods. She picks whichever one makes your grade the highest and also gave extra points on exams, as well as dropping our lowest homework assignment. She allows for cheat sheets on exams which were life savers. I 100% recommend this class with this professor. Just make sure to understand the homework assignments to ace the midterm/final. The averages were both for always super high (late 80s.)
no textbook. huge class so hard to get close w anyone really so you may feel alone. hard to understand her bc she has a very heavy accent but she wants everyone to get an A. she will weigh either your midterm, final, or assignments heavier depending on which you do better on. example: i did well overall, but got my midterm weighed heavier. she truly wants everyone to get an A and succeed. get unlimited attempts at quizzes. one attempt on hw assignment but she encourages you to work w others and compare. she will drop the lowest quiz and hw assignment too. lecture is often long and boring but it is statistics.
Professor Du is a sweet professor. She genuinely cares about students and despite preferring in-person classes more, obliged to move to Zoom during the protests because the majority of us voted for it. Our final was also at 8 AM and she offered snacks for people who didn't get to eat/have low blood sugar. There are six assignments and a quiz every week for each chapter. The chapter quizzes are unlimited attempts and the assignments come straight from the lab portion. Han is straightforward and everything you need comes from the slides; I'd say lecture isn't totally mandatory (since she kind of just reads from the slides) but the lab portion is because the assignments and exams are heavily centered around the program we use, Jamovi. TA's usually make slides for the labs if you can't make it but I'd say being there for the lab is more helpful than following some slides.
Super low-stress. You are allowed a full-page cheat sheet on exams to help you remember the three concepts that this class covers. Jamovi, the software used to sample data, can be unintuitive at first but is very easy to understand if actually you go to your lab section.
Coming into this class, I was kind of scared because I had never taken a stats course in my life. But ultimately, I really enjoyed this class! The content was pretty interesting, Jamovi (the statistical analysis software we used) was surprisingly fun & easy, and the grading schemes were extremely forgiving. Some of the lecture slides were unnecessarily repetitive, but I thought that they served as great review. Professor Du is obviously very invested in student learning, and she wanted as many students to get an A in the class as possible (she even made the cutoff for a solid A 90%). Take Professor Du if you can!
Take this class with Prof Du!! She is so sweet and really wants you to learn. The concepts in this class are really not that difficult and the workload is really light, there are weekly quizzes where she gives you unlimited tries and takes your highest score. There are also about 6 assignments where you use a software called jamovi to conduct statistical analyses on a data set, and for these you only get one submission. These quizzes/assignments were super easy and took me like 10 minutes to do. She also encourages working together so I always checked my assignment answers with a friend.
The midterm was easy in my opinion, it was multiple choice based on printed out jamovi analyses of research studies and data sets. She gave us the option of a final project instead of exam because of COVID, which was assigned on Monday of finals week and due on Friday night. Both the midterm and final were super similar to the assignments so as long as you understand those then you'll do well. For the midterm she also allowed a double sided cheat sheet.
The lab section is where she teaches you how to use jamovi. She recorded it and started uploading slides so I never went to lab after the first two.
The only thing I didn't like that much is that she has a one question in-class quiz every lecture to measure participation, but it actually motivated to go to lecture.
She calculates your grade using 3 different grading scales and chooses whichever one gives you the highest grade! She also drops your lowest assignment, quiz, and in-class quiz. This is one of the scales for if you do better on the final than the midterm.
1) Midterm exam: 30%
(2) Final exam: 40%
(3) Homework (about 6 assignments): 15%
(4) Quizzes (every week): 7.5%
(5) In-class participation via in-class quizzes: 7.5%
I never went to office hours or really spoke to her but she was seriously so kind, you should definitely take this class!
Professor Han is just amazing! She made everything easy to understand and straightforward! The workload is light, but you have to attend class for participation quizzes. She is a fair grader and the labs are short/not mandatory to attend. Take her class!
Professor Du's class was a great welcome into the psychology department. It also reminded me how much I love stats! Here's the basic structure of the class. There is a midterm and a final alongside weekly quizzes (but you get unlimited attempts) and assignments. The assignments, although you don't get unlimited attempts, aren't super challenging. There are also in-class quizzes but those are only worth 1 point. Professor Du will change the weights of each of these components to give you the best grade possible. She is always energetic and cheerful, and she doesn't make you feel bad for asking any kind of question. It was kind of weird that the class didn't have discussion and we had lab with all 300 students, but the TAs were always walking around in class if you needed them.
The downside of the class is that it was basically just a slightly less advanced review of Stats 10. I also feel like it wasn't entirely connected to psychology as the name implies because we used Jamovi, a software that I don't think is used professionally. Also, we didn't really touch on the psychology connection all that much—mostly just regular stats material.
Professor Du is unbelievably kind and accommodating, and really wants you to succeed. We had a final on our last day to move out, but she worked so hard to get the psychology department to agree to let us have a final project.
Overall, don't feel too nervous about taking this class
Professor Han is very sweet and genuinely only cares that you learn the materials from the class. She changes the dynamic most times in order to allow for students to learn, whether them worrying about their grades. Although it's a very big class including the labs, she is always open to students asking questions in order to understand the concepts. BUT I would 1000% recommend taking a stats class prior to this class. I took Stats 10 in the fall, and this class was comfortable to learn in; it didn't feel overwhelmingly hard nor did I ever fall so behind that I gave up. Please please please take an intro stats class because you may get lost if you don't pick up on material quickly. You cannot move on in this class unless you grasp each concept on its own, because they all will be used throughout the quarter. But the professor is a sweetheart.
Professor Du is a super sweet professor and you can definitely tell she wants her students to do well. I don't consider myself a math person, but I didn't find this class difficult. Her lectures can be a little hard to focus on sometimes (but that's expected with a math class), but she makes the content really accessible. Your grade mainly just consists of a few quizzes, assignments, and one final "big" assignment. However, all of them were super manageable and none of them took a ton of time. You can also take the quizzes multiple times if you get a bad score on the first round. I can't speak to how this class is in person (I took it online due to COVID), but overall, I highly recommend Han!
