Super easy winter online class, answers are on quizlet. No midterm/final. Just 2-3 quizzes every week with a test at the end of the week. There are also discussions every week. Honestly, you can finish all your work in a day. Good if you're trying to fullfill gened. Let's say that you'll be able to balance a 15 unit+ schedule with this class.

Dr. Kiotas seems intimidating at first, but she is truly a wonderful professor. She pushes her students to work hard because she wants them to succeed. Make sure to review for exams (MC and short essay questions). Try to pick solid research group partners, because the final research paper is worth a lot. She cares about her students, so reach out.

I had to work my butt off, but she prepared me exceptionally well for the rigors of psych. She is very meticulous and detail-oriented, but happy to answer questions. Definitely a bit sassy/intimidating, but she truly cares about the success of her students. Tests were a combo of multi-choice/short answer, but if you study hard you can get an A.

Kiotas expects a lot from her Psyc5 students, as she should. There is a lot of work assigned, but it is manageable. I would recommend taking this class when you are not working or are taking less units. She is very straightforward as a person and will not settle for anything less than your best.

Kiotas is one of the most engaging profs I've ever had! After getting a BA yrs ago, I went to PCC to satisfy prereqs for grad school & can't sing Kiotas' praises enough. Her teaching is superior to profs' I had at a major top-tier university. Clearly passionate about her students & wants to make sure they excel in class & beyond! Game changer.

I was a bit hesitant when I added the course because of the heavy load of classes I already had but I went ahead and did it and I don't regret it. It was super easy. If you get the chance to take her DO IT!

Be prepared to work, you will definitely get the grade you deserve. Dr. Kiotas is an amazing professor who is passionate about psychology and teaching. She will continually motivate you to do your best, and is always available for her students. This class sets the bar for all other classes Ive taken at PCC. This class is not an easy A, its better

Very very easy class to get an A in as long as you do all of the assignments. Weekly 40 question quizzes, with the occasional written answer portion, but they are not hard. One research paper.

Just an ordinary online class but offers Honors options credit so take this class if you want it. You get two tries for quiz and optional research paper for Honors option. Solid pick for completion of GE.

text book are free! She's really down to earth and trust me, you will LOVE this class. She made Psychology so easy to understand and she tied a lot of real world example in her lecture. All quizzes are online, 1 presentation( group). Attendance is a huge part of the grade but dude, you wouldn't want to skip her class. Everyday is a fun day.

I took PSYC 1 online with the Honor's Option for winter intersession. Dr. Kiotas sets very clear expectations in her syllabus and grades assignments quickly. She is very friendly and responds to e-mails within 24 hours. There are weekly quizzes and discussion posts. The textbook is provided online. If only she taught business classes, too :)

She is a kind and funny woman. Online quizzes every two weeks on the chapters assigned. Read the textbook it'll help (free online textbook) No midterm or final. Lots of group discussions. She normally doesn't call on people but she does encourage participation, it makes the class more interesting if you do. Great professor, would take again.

A great professor! There weren't too many online discussions. I took the 6-week crash course and we had a test every week which covered 2 chapters. Free pdf textbook so no need to buy anything.

Definitely take her! She makes psychology very fun and doesn't give much work. Lots of group projects (that don't really affect your grade too much) and all open note quizzes (online). No final and a very sweet woman. Will help you get an A if you put in the effort.

I really enjoyed her online class. We used textbook she provided in her class for free. It is so well written and simply understood that I enjoyed it each week. Her teaching is very well structured and organized. You have test each week, but 2 attempts to complete. She is very caring. Assignments are inspirational, and not bored at all!

I took prof Kiotas hybrid class. She is amazing. She gives incredible lectures and intriguing examples. She is so charming in all aspects. She is also very kind, and she brings a lot of free books to give to us. If you follow her lectures and take the quiz, read your book. I am sure you will get a good grade.

I took her for Spring. She's funny, informational, and FAST. It's best to review the online textbook the day before because I couldn't write down what I wanted to from the notes or what she said. Online tests weren't bad, my class was a hybrid. Just a lot of vocabulary, some which are pretty obvious in meaning so it's not TOO bad.
