Reviews and tips for PSY234

You must be joking right??? Although the lecturers seemingly very nice... Some of the MCQ in the final exam were poorly written... Essay asks student to critically evaluate, yet students never actually got taught nor given adequate guidance as to how to ask the smart questions (how to be critical)... Another unit @mq that involves a lot of selecting and assessing/testing, but not enough teaching, not enough quality guidance. Get taught more on research designs (past first year Micky Mouse level), only after essay due date... Seem ridiculous not to tutor students on research designs until the last tutorial.

Never did so poorly on an essay. -really demotivating!!!!.. It would not have mattered what I had written - too short a word count for the depth of critical analysis required .The topics were interesting, but teaching quality was mediocre.

this unit was very interesting. the social psychology part was more straight forward than the personality component. The final exam was not difficult as opposed to the mid sem exam.

Outstandingly well put together. Readings and lectures intertwine in content, nothing is irrelevant, and while the assignment marking is harsh as any PSY unit, the exam is multiple choice and a breeze. Overall, the best part, I feel smarter for having taken it. This unit is something everyone on the planet should be exposed to.

I found the content wasn't too hard to memorise, and it was fairly interesting (although I found that the social component was better than the personality segment). The major issue was the essay. The lecturers advised us to take whatever approach we wanted, then criticised us for not answering the question in the (rather particular) way that they wanted. Most people were lucky to pass (I think the average was a high pass), and I don't think there was a single HD. Whilst I'll accept that there were areas that I didn't explore properly, leaving a comment with 7 consecutive question marks is disrespectful. I put many hours of work into researching, writing, and editing that essay, and I think it's reasonable for me to expect that the marker will treat my hard work with at least some respect. I'm willing to accept constructive criticism, but learning to write better essays is much harder when it's pure criticism.
