Love how the class is laid out 60 percent of it is homework! Which works well for my style of learning. Her weekly quizzes can be a little tough but overall loved this course, it surprised me as I suck at math!

Comment:
Lectured day 1 about her high expectations for 'mature' students in a third year course. She simply laughs off many 'dumb' questions and refuses to answer them. Simplest/vaguest syllabus ever. Poor email replies. It's odd because she held extra online classes to check in about the paper, but gave vague answers. Weekly quizzes, 1 group paper, 2 labs

Comment:
Awful. I'm normally understanding, but she is just very rude and blunt. Treats our questions like we are idiots, and doesn't respond well to student concerns. Took her call during the pandemic and her class was online. She provided 0 lectures of any kind, no recordings. She insists this is the best way for students to learn.

Very stern but good. She knows her stuff and is a great teacher but she will put up with ZERO bull. Dont slack off, focus and pay attention and you will do well. You will learn a lot from her and shes easy to understand but you have to pay attention and do your work. 10/10 would take her again

Comment:
Seems nice but easily offended. Unfair marker by far. Never given a course syllabus or rubric or assignment break downs. It was all up in the air. Felt like she was pretty bias at times during the marking process. Needed this class for an elective or would have never taken it. Pro tip: *make sure* you call her Dr. maybe youll get some extra marks

Comment:
Dianne is a super nice prof and her online course for Aging went very smoothly. The course consisted of two online labs, mini weekly quizzes, and one big group project. As long as the group project goes well, there is no need to worry about grades as it is fairly easy to do well on the rest of the material.

No midterms, no finals. I dont want to disclose everything here but all I can say is all the answers are found online. Minimal effort needed to pass the course. I would force you to take her. Its the easiest prof I had in 9 semesters.

Comment:
I took this class partially online. When we did attend class, she makes the classroom atmosphere very stressful by randomly calling on students for answers. Tests included questions that were not in the notes or textbook. The only good thing about this class was that I didn't have to see her every week. I would try to avoid if possible.

Good understanding of material and good at explaining, but terrifying as a person. She once yelled at me in class for being on my phone when it was tucked away in my backpack. When I looked around in confusion she made fun of me for "pretending" I wasn't on my phone. Exams MC answers are online and she prepares you well for the written portion.

I took a partially online class, the in class lectures were a waste of time. I had a friend in a different section and we never learned the same material. The only helpful part of the lectures that were the week before exams was she often said what the long answer question would be. All multiple choice questions from exams are found online.

She's clearly passionate about the course material, but makes the class atmosphere extremely stressful. There were also questions on quizzes & exams that weren't in the course material, which multiple students noticed. No assignments/papers; 95% of grades came from exams & quizzes, 5% psychsim worksheets, which were basically participation marks.

Dianne is an excellent prof in my opinion. Her lectures are very helpful & she always checks to make sure students understand the material. She is very clear about what will be on exams, so as long as you study the chapters & pay attention in class you will be fine. 3 exams (25% each), 1 exam (10%), brain lab, psych sims & online quizzes.

Her tests were based on the textbook and she dropped hints in class about questions on the test. Good and engaging lectures too. 3 tests worth 25% and 1 test worth 10%. Online quizzes are also easy and come from txtbook

This is my second time with Dr. Crisp. I definitely recommend her for this class and stats! Quite knowledgeable and passionate. There are 4 exams, 3 of which are 25% and one is 10%. Just show up for the brain lab and other classes and you easily get about 7%. There are also weekly online quizzes which are pretty easy, just study the chapters!

picked at random students. Was heavily test based. when you need help she just repeats the same thing. very random with her topics. trys to make class fun but for some kids they seemed shy and it did not feel good when she picked on you for class for math questions especially if you weren't good at math.

I personally feel as if she may be strict but a good prof which makes everything crystal clear but she had embarrassed me in front of the whole class for not having a calculator whereas, other students also hadnt. She was cold towards me but she was just probably just having a bad day . I withdrew because I felt small & irrelevant .

the class was partially online, so we only met a week before the exam and on exam day. The class was pretty basic, with 4 midterms, a mini brain lab, online quizzes, and online activities. Her exams were fairly straight forward, and as long as you do the readings, you should be good!

There were 3 tests, 3 labs, 13 weekly online assignment and one extra credit (take a self-fee from an exhibition in UBC gallery and upload to moodle). Buy the calculator that the prof told you. As long as you go to class, study the textbook and do the assignments. You will pass the course. She was willing to give a tutorial for extra help.

Dianne was a good prof and I enjoyed stats for the most part. The class was test heavy and there was homework every week (the aplia assignments) which i thought was useless. Nonetheless, if you do majority of them, you would at least end up with a decent mark. Finally, if you're stuck in her class, feel free to ask for help! She is helpful!

Dianne randomly calls on students to answer questions. Every week you are required to complete online hw on Aplia which is worth 20% of your grade. A majority of your grade - 70% - is based off tests (30,30,10). This course is not easy! P.s. You will need to purchase a textbook with an Aplia code.. it is quit expensive
