Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would definitely recommend taking this course, especially if one is considering performing any type of statistical research. This class is considered a Psychology class, however I believe these methods can be applied in many different fields. The professor was very caring and put an exciting spin on a not so exciting subject. The math is pretty basic and includes many different formulas, but I think it is well worth the memorization. There are four projects in which you conduct your own research. This was so much fun! I was able to come up with my own hypothesis and then test them using actual statistical analyses. This class also introduces one to the computer program SPSS which is the actual program the Psychology labs at Ohio University use. This basic familiarization is a great introduction into the world or statistical research and gave me a better understanding of how one should interpret statistics.
Course highlights:
Throughout this course, I learned how to perform many different statistical analyses. I also learned when it was appropriate to use particular analyses. Being able to decipher which analysis is appropriate is a skill I will surely carry with me throughout any discipline I venture into. Interpreting statistics reported in the real world is also an incredible skill this class was able to offer. Overall, this class is definitely worth it.
Hours per week:

Advice for students:
Some advice for this class would simply be show up to class. The discussions are very involved and help one better understand the concepts. Another piece of advice would be to start the major projects ahead of time. The sooner you collect your data for the projects, the sooner you can get started on the paper.
