Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Keeping up with readings was challenging, but the lab assignments were all done online, so despite its difficulties, it was possible to complete everything relatively easily.
There was much less writing this time than in previous years, according to the instructor. The first lab assignment topics were strange and boring, and the later part of the course involved working with SPSS to carry out a meta-analyses of various data that were collected in class. The final assignment involved comparing a media article about a research article to the article itself and involved a brief 3 minute presentation on the main summary.

Advice for students:
Complete all readings ahead of class and take good notes because the final exam is cumulative and the knowledge in later chapters builds on earlier ones. This requires at least an hour of work per day.
