PSYC1004 Introduction to Quantitative Methods in Psychology
Shared by dashinthemash

2024-05-28

Professor: Cao Hong Jian

If given the chance, a house plant would teach better than him. He speaks too softly, doesn't adjust his mic, says at the start of the course that "you have to work hard to get a good grade" but doesn't fucking explain anything adequately and just skims over important concepts. He spends like 40 minutes talking crap about his research and 20 actually about class content. I had to self-learn everything with Crash Course and Khan Academy. He seems nice but his concerning lack of teaching skills (he said that he's been teaching for over 10 years in Beijing which is very concerning, because if that's the case, how did his students survive???) really put the final nail to the coffin. Working hard brings you nowhere. It took me 20 hours to complete an assignment of four questions because he explained naut. Zilch. Nada.

His teaching is ok, would incorporate random stories and examples. However, I personally dont really like the way he sets questions in exams and midterms, too convoluted and doesn't really reflect the learning materials well.

Jesus it is bad. Awful. He read out ppt and teaching has no focus. Don't reg HKGS2002 If its still Lawrence Pun teaching. Not interesting, not intellectually rewarding, not generous (actually is extremely strict) in grading, not remotely good in any aspect. If and only if you are a masochist and enjoy being fucked over and over, having your gpa going down down down, then choose him.

the teacher is quite chur during lesson, workload is not light, but the grade is fair. Although the teacher is chur, she gives constructive feedbacks and you could score high if you follows her comments. Just smile and speaks with lots of genki and try to use as much honorifics as possible then you will be able to gain good grade lol

Teaching is about average. Alot of economic terms are introduced, so lessons can be quite confusing if you're not from an economics background. Have to do quite some readings on your own. The participation thing gets pretty damn annoying sometimes, where everyone asks and answers questions just to get marks.

Professor: Prof. Y.K. Lau, Prof. K.W. Chow

Part 1 and 2 lectures with Prof Lau and Prof Chow were a nightmare; lectures were very dull and I had a difficult time understanding their speech. Consider skipping them altogether but study the lecture notes. On the other hand, tutorials were lifesaving. Both tutors are amazing at teaching, but unfortunately tutorials are only 1 hour a week they tend to skip some small parts on the lecture notes so please beware. But overall, it's a rather unsatisfying course.

Professor: Dr. Clement Wong

First of all, take Clement's course and dodge Ping Yu. Ping Yu's english is more challenging to comprehend than the material. Many avoid Clement because of his multiple choice, but the difficulty is honestly exaggerated and not that crazy. The questions he sets are largely based on lectures so if you go to class and pay attention, you should find the questions to be okay and not hard to do well on. Lectures are very clear and complicated concepts are made easy to understand with good examples. Go to his office hours if you don't understand something, great mentor.

This course covers a lot of topics and most concepts need to be furthered researched on your own. You will have to spend a lot of time reading the textbook and memorize the definitions and concepts for the tests. As for the tutorials, I don't think they add anything to the overall course experience and some tutors have weird and strict marking rubic for the mini-projects. Research participation is fun but time-consuming.

I really loved the lectures themselves and my tutor! The tutor prepared us engaging lectures and games for tutorials.

Speak up during tutorials too
