Reviews

As a core subject for quite a number of majors in the arts degree, this subject was not as bad as I thought, but not good either. The lectures seemed to be more dull and disorganised towards the end and I felt that it sometimes lacked substance. The readings sometimes felt unnecessary and the tutorials were mostly a waste of time. However, the subject has definitely improved compared to past years and the skills/main material taught are important for future years/social science research.

This class really isn't as bad as people say it is, I think the fact that it's mandatory just creates a little bias. I really enjoyed his class; also just to offset other comments, i found the marking lenient and transparent, so it might be just the tutor you get.

Did not like this subject at all. The lecture content and readings were extremely dry as expected, and the 1.5 hour tutorials were painful to get through with my tutor. The short answer test held early in the semester tested very basic knowledge so it's not worth agonising over, but a lot of people still did poorly. The second assignment, a group presentation on a particular data collection or analysis method, was pretty standard. Try to start the research proposal as early as possible, as it's worth 50% of your grade and is important for getting a somewhat decent mark if you did badly on the previous assessments. It's a well-taught unit in some weeks, but incredibly boring the majority of the time.

This was the worst subject I have taken so far at uni. Poorly organised, lack of guidance for the in class tests - I found myself studying mountains of content from the readings, only to be tested on basic concepts from the lectures, which was a complete waste of time. The group assignment was incredibly frustrating. Again, lack of indication about what was expected. Don't go into CAS with high hopes, try to seek clarification from your tutors about everything so you don't end up wasting time and not including small things that are required in your presentation as I did. In the end, I got a H1 overall thanks to my final assignment (which I fluked - again, was very unsure of the detail expected), so I would say that it's not impossible to achieve, but a bit based on luck. I hope that some of these parts of the subject are changed to make it less frustrating.

Quite dry but does help with an overall understanding of social science research. Includes x3 tests, presentation and research proposal.

Over structured marking all over the place unfortunately it's compulsory

Poorly taught. Grading is based on luck, not knowledge, as the test questions were unreasonable. Hopefully it'll be better here on as it should be a useful subject.
