This unit was much better than I was expecting it to be! Assessments were reasonable with a 60 MCQ exam, weekly lecture-based and exercise-based quizzes that contribute to your grade - only your best eight scores are used for your grade, and instead of a time-consuming lab report, after each of the 5 labs you complete a short methods/results summary of which the first four aren't graded - you get marks to do peer feedback on others' summaries and the 5th one is marked by a demonstrator but follows the same criteria you use for peer feedback so easy to get full marks. I would recommend using a flow chart/decision tree to map the criteria for the different statistical tests across the semester, otherwise, it may become a bit confusing to try to untangle it before the exam (the exam is based on theory, no calculations are involved). Also, 2 x 45-minute lectures are much better for focusing than 1 two-hour lecture so that was another good aspect :))

Basically an overview of the most common statistical analyses used in Psychology. I really liked Nic and his lectures (and his progressive approach), but I had a hard time following the material which was very dry - this meant that I struggled in some of the labs because I hadn't really grasped what analysis we were supposed to be choosing to use. It really is an overview type of unit, you don't need to know much about how things work (unlike 2203), you just need to know when to do what. Even though I was struggling at times I felt really supported, and Nic and the demonstrators were very approachable whenever I had questions. I really appreciated the extra time that was put into providing practise questions and several Q and A sessions at the end of semester - there aren't practise exams for any psych units but the practise questions were more than enough. I liked the emphasis on open source software too.

One of the least engaging units ive ever taken, the content is so dry and not presented in a very energetic way. the upside to this unit is that it is comically easy, 40% of your mark is impossible not to get 100% in and the other 60% is a multiple choice exam meaning that you have to get 66.66% in your final exam to get a high distinction. also NO PRACTISE EXAM WAS SUPPLIED i dont know how units get away with not giving practise exams to students when the exam is worth over half the marks

Listen to the lectures, do your notes and make sure understand the statistical concepts! Easy HD and even 90s if you do these! Gilles’ lectures are as interesting as Troy’s (PSYC2203) :)

Don't be fooled into letting lectures pile up just because there's no assessable mid-sem/lab report/essay. The 100% exam is all multi-choice, however you need to deeply understand the material in order to get a good mark.

keep reviewing the lectures before you go to a new lecture so you know what the tutor is talking about and if theres anything you dont understand ask right away dont wait until your questions pile up
