PSYC 3980 - Research Design in Psychology
Pros: Nice, teaches well
Cons: To those of you looking to take her because she doesn't give tests, she does now. They're not too difficult if you do your studying, but two of the tests were the same week as a big paper she assigned also. She is a good teacher, but she doesn't really space out her assignments very well. If you want to take her, get ready to work hard.

I actually had her as a teacher for social psychology, but it isn't listed. She's so nice. Social psych was a really great class and she was the best teacher. There were a couple of assignments and if you missed something she always let you turn it in late for a couple points off. The test weren't bad and she made the multiple choice questions scratch off. So you could immediately see if you answered correctly, and get half credit for trying again and then getting the correct answer.

This class I feel is not as easy as she used to have it. It is a ton of work and really difficult to get A's on assignments. The Reseach notebooks are graded by the TA, and she is very citical when grading it. Also, the tests require a lot of studying for. Also, at the end of the semester she gives a big lab report AND a final. Too much if you ask me

Pros: Tori is the bomb. One of the best GTA's. If you don't do well with her you should drop out of college.
Cons: There is a lot of reading and group work to be done in this class, but it is all relatively easy.

Pros: The only test is the final! RAMs are most days and worth 10 points...they are really straight forward if you actually read the chapter she assigned. Lots of in class activities and group work that all contribute to your grade. She is really nice and knows that the subject is boring but tries to make it as entertaining as she can. She frequently gives out extra credit too...sometimes you literally just have to turn something in on eLC and you'll get 5 points.
Cons: Because of the group work and frequent RAMs, you do have to go to class, but she generally lets you out early. If you don't like group work, she's not the teacher for you but I can PROMISE you she's the easiest 3980 teacher! The APA paper due at the end is not fun, but you only have to write one compared to other classes who have to write two.
I would HIGHLY recommend Tori! Even though the class was easy, I actually learned a lot! Don't be worried about the final either, it's so similar to all the activities that you completed earlier in the semester.

Pros: No tests.
Cons: TONS of assignments.
Tori is really nice and she does a really good job of trying to make a boring subject more interesting. There are no tests, but the entire class is very heavily assignment and paper based. There are reading quizzes almost daily in place of tests, and in class assignments almost every day, so it is really not an option to skip class more than once or two here and there, unless you want to loose points off your grade. There are lots of out of class writing assignments also, so you will have one of those almost every week. None of them are very difficult though. I would recommend the class if you are the type of person that goes to class almost every day and enjoys team based learning.

Pros: Read, and the quizzes will be a piece of cake. The only tests is the final, which I haven't done yet, but it seems like it's going to be harder than I expected. She really does a good job of coming up with things to do for a boring subject: A lot of the material is just snooze worthy, but she did come up with a high variety of things to do.
Cons: The subject is boring.
She's probably the best GTA you can take for this class.

Pros: Extremely nice.

She is actually a zoologist (I think...) so her focus is on animals, which I found interesting.
Cons: None that I can think of
One of my favorite professors that I've had at UGA. She was nice and friendly, but was able to teach concepts. She wasn't an easy teacher technically, but if you did the work and came to class you would earn a good grade.

Pros: no tests.

really easy class.

good teacher.
Cons: boring material.
this class is easy and tori is a great teacher. instead of having tests you take RAMs, which are really easy multiple choice quizzes. her assignments are fairly easy and there's a lot of group work.

i highly recommend getting tori as you research design teacher! you will probably get an A.

Pros: Tori is really nice and willing to help students. Powerpoints mainly used to show material.
Cons: Lots of assignments and some tough grading. She zoomed through powerpoints a lot, so it was best to view them online before class.
Since Tori graduated and got a new job, I don't think she'll be returning to UGA. She was a great TA though!

Pros: Tori is probably the best possible instructor for this course. She was funny, and very knowledgeable about the subject matter. There were no tests either just RAMS which were 5 question multiple choice quizzes. Extremely easy A.
Cons: The subject material was extremely boring at times. The final was extremely long, but not hard at all.

Pros: There is a lot of work to do in this class, but none of it is too complicated. Tori is a fantastic teacher who really wants everyone to succeed. Put in a little effort and there is no reason you can't pull off an A!
Cons: The course itself is kind of boring (research design), but there are no cons to having Tori as a professor.

Pros: RAMs are quizzes every class session or so that can really boost your grade...or hurt it. Read the entire chapters. Tori is awesome and easy to get along with.
Cons: The final is long and comprehensive but not necessarily hard. The group work sucked.

Pros: No tests

Easy class
Cons: A lot of work
No tests, just a ton of RAM's, aka quizzes. A lot of APA paper work to complete, but helpful in learning APA style, which is the point of the class. Great professor and has humor.
