My fav psych professor so far. Very straight forward class. I actually enjoyed the assignments they weren't tedious and overwhelming like other classes I've previously taken. The test were pretty tough, you have to read the chapter if you want an A.

My favorite professor at OU. I wish she would teach more psychology classes. Everything is so easy to understand & the work/quizzes are all online. The lectures are enjoyable & shes overall a fun & caring professor. The exams are exactly whats in the book (just read & youll pass). She makes psychology fun! Totally recommend taking this class.

Work load is standard: weekly quizzes & weekly reaction papers or discussion boards. Make sure you take your time with these assignments because your grade is essentially half these & half 2 exams & the exams are tricky. I think someone said , these can wreck your grade. Tests are based completely off reading the text so you must READ.

Lectures are super fun to listen to: Dr. Hoyt is an adorable lady! She's really passionate about psych. Lectures often don't fully reflect exams, so be sure to read the textbook. Would definitely recommend as a professor, everyone deserves to have her!

Dr. Hoyt is a great professor and always incorporates jokes into her lectures. Definitely would recommend getting her as your professor if you can. Her tests aren't hard if you read over your notes and the powerpoints to study. The textbook has some extra information in it that may be on the exams, but not completely necessary.

Hoyt was very fun to listen to in lectures. The tests aren't too bad but you really need to read the book because most of her notes aren't on the test. Overall would take again.

Sandra Hoyt is one of the sweetest women I have ever met. The class can be a bit dry but she really tries to make it interesting with stories and jokes. The class itself can be easy but you do need to read outside of class to do well.

Tough grader, rude in e-mail responses. Wouldn't budge on some confusing grades despite being challenged. Took her for Stats. Wouldn't suggest taking her for this course. Proctored exams as well.

The exams are 100% from the textbook, which is not discussed in class. I feel that I would've gotten the same grade had I never attended a single lecture, because I ended up just reading the textbook to study - lecture notes were not helpful at all. Lots of discussion and lots of extra credit, but nothing else about this class was special.

Loved this professor! She made the class interesting and funny and I rarely got bored during her lectures. Every three chapters you have 3 online quizzes to do from the textbook material (which you can find on quizlet) and she posts her lectures online so you can catch up easily if you missed a class.

DONT TAKE PSYCH JUSTICEw/Her Nothing you learn in class in even on the exam. It is all in the book which is not fun. If you try to ask for any help to improve your grade just slightly she just gets mad. sorry I care about my grade and am willing to go above and beyond to get a good grade. Thats better than not caring at all I think. WORST TEACHER

Love her. Easy class, interesting material. She's fun and funny and conveys information in a way that it really sticks in your brain. Plus, attendance isn't taken and she posts her slides online, so it's easy to catch up on anything you miss.

This class is hard. The lectures are informative but no very useful for the exams. She requires you to read the chapters but they're like 40+ pages each and that's all the exam is over. She doesn't go over the readings in class so it's basically you preparing yourself for the exam. Extra credit saved me.

Exams can destroy your grade, maybe 25% of whats covered in class is on the exam, the rest is from the book.

I'm a nursing major getting a psych minor and this class is starting to be one of my hardest classes! You have to read the book to pass. The exams are hard and confusing. Lecture is beyond boring and nothing that we really talk about is on the exam. powerpoints are like 2 sentences. You pretty much have to teach yourself. Don't take!!!!!!

Super sweet lady. Understands her class isn't your only one. Browse through her powerpoints and read the corresponding chapters before tests and you'll be fine.

Uses powerpoints but you will need to add your own notes. tests are really difficult, mostly based on theories. She does a good job of holding your attention during lectures.
