Quarter Taken: Fall 2020

Nico is a dedicated and approachable professor -- you can really tell she cares a lot about student learning.

Besides several homework assignments (pretty standard with most ling upper divs), there is also a group project you do with a partner (whom you can choose yourself -- since none of us really knew each other due to our cameras being off during class and section not being mandatory, most people just posted in the CCLE forum and found partners that way, including myself). The group project seems daunting at first but really isn't that bad so long as you cooperate with your partner and don't procrastinate. You basically just pick a research topic you're interested in and write a paper about it (how you would conduct the experiment and the implications of hypothetical results, since you can't actually conduct it given the pandemic) and give a powerpoint presentation about it to the class during Week 10/finals week.

There is also a midterm and final for the class, but it's pretty doable if you go over all the review questions/study guides posted for each exam and know the answers and concepts well. The final was definitely harder than the midterm imo, but the curve was pretty generous.
