Many Small Assignments
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Many times we have courses that we are required to take. This was one of those classes. Overall, I am not the smartest person in statistics but I would recommend this class. I wouldn't say it is easy but you are provided with resources to help you do the assignments. On top of that, I usually always found Course Hero to be very helpful because majority of the time I found the assignments with answers on here. Usually, I use the assignments to see how the problems are worked out and I use it to compare my work. Another resource that I highly used for this class was youtube. I am a visual learner so looking up how the problem is solved was very helpful as the tutors on youtube showed you step by step on how to solve them. In the end, with the resources that I used I got an A. However, I would not recommend this class if you have not previously taken any statistic classes because this is more advanced.
Some subjects that were covered in this course was describing a normative sample and analysis worksheets. I learned how to create bar graphs, histograms, and pie charts. I also learned about item development, item characteristic curves, and item difficulty. Some other topics covered were evaluating reliability, and validity. My highlight of the course was being able to practice using SPSS which is my favorite thing about statistics.

Advice for students:
Definitely use Course Hero because it is really helpful as it usually contains most of the assignments for this class. Sometimes they have slightly different questions as professors switch them up but it is a good base to compare your work to. If you are a visual learner, I highly recommend watching tutorials on youtube because it also helped me out tremendously with this class. For the assignments, make sure you don't miss any steps because one step will through your answer off. Hope the best for all of you. Don't give up. Take one assignment at a time so you won't overwhelm yourself.
