One of the best courses I have taken in relation to UX. Very good design, engaging lectures and examples, and well designed exams. I learned alot and enjoyed listening to Dr. Webbrock. Kudos to him.
This was really useful. The course was well structured and provided excellent real-life examples that are easily transferrable to other scenarios. Keep it up!

Indeed a tough bite!
It's a big leap into the wild sea of experiment design and analysis especially I don't have many memories of statistical analysis in university.
But the instructor has made it friendly for me to onboard and tackle the problems.
This is just a start. I think for an Interaction designer to understand the language that analyst speaks, we still got a long way to go.

Great course! It was difficult, but mostly due to my lack of basic knowledge about statistics. A primer lesson would have been great. But with some research on some topics on my own I could complete the course with a sufficient understanding of the concepts.
I found the lectures and assignments to be very clear and concise. Props for the professor ;)

The video lectures and the r code supplied are of excellent quality, and the concepts were explained in a very simple and concise way. Despite this, the Professors' participation in the Discussion Forums was nonexistent, which in some cases was very necessary since some of the quizzes required some explanation.

A good course providing the fundamentals for doing tests of proportions and analysis of variance. The former is well covered; the latter, being a bigger subject, in a bit less detailed manner as complexity increases. The accompanying R code provides a good basis with which to further investigate.

Tough course to get through and very different to the others in the specialisation but knowing about statistics has given me a different view of the world and I have really gained something from doing it. I can hold reasonable conversations with data analysts and the like now.
Great course. The title is speaking and I found what I was looking for.
Great balance between theory (not much) and application (a bit more).
I used different statistical tools in different situation,
everything in R (you mast have a bit of knowledge of it).

This course was put together with lots of thought and care, and I appreciated the thoroughness of the files and assignments. The content was quite dry, and I'm not totally confident in my abilities to execute the tests in real life.

Some times i felt lack of explanation. Because there is a lot of math. And quizzes are too big (10 + 32 questions on Week 7). But overall i would say that this course is the only one to which i will definetly come back
It's a hard course. It's better to have some statistic knowledge. I got a big picture of various methods after finishing this course and I think I need to search for more material to better understand them.
Without any background in R programming and experiment design, I am able to learn a lot of useful stuff in this course. I wish the last three lessons and quizzes are a little more beginner friendly.
This course covers a very wide range of statistical methods but it could use more references to explain in more detail the different tests used. Overall this is a good overview.

While the course if useful as an introduction to spectrum of tests used in experiment design, heavy external reading is required to truly understand the concepts in depth
By Louis S•
Great module but it was very difficult for me as I am a 'non-coder' and R Studio was at times very buggy, so my suggestion is to structure the course differently.

Students need to acquire additional knowledge to really understand the content.
The courses tend to deliver arcane content in a very sketchy way.

Great course. There is some mistakes in some of the quiz. Nevertheless, the professor gives swift feedback to the questions send.

I have noticed some of the tests require knowledge that is gained in the next week. I would suggest fixing that.
By Andrea L•
The instructor for this course was great. He was very responsive to students' questions concerns.

Designing experiments wasn't what I thought, and had a very steep learning curve.

Thank you for designing a course that demonstrates that UX is not just painting!
Great course, a little too long compared to other courses

Very very helpful for my game design project.
By Guyin L Y•
More comprehensive than in-depth.
By Mohini D•
Very analytical and challenging!

It looks great
Although the lecturer has explained many theoretical aspects regarding experiments preparation and analysis well in the course, I honestly don't enjoy this course. The reasons are: 1. this is a stats course to a large extent. So you better have a good understanding of stats using in psychological studies. Otherwise you will GET LOST. 2. This course uses R instead of Python. If you are R novice like me, you WILL HAVE trouble installing packages, modules or using them because of non-compatible version of R etc. The lecturer sometimes will explicitly point out the "right" codes to execute, but it did not work as many other students suggested. Then you asked a question in the forum but unfortunately you still dont get any answer even after you complete this course. In my opinion this also shows poor preparation of the course materials and lack of updating teaching/exercise materials. Copy and paste code seems to become the pattern for completing course exercises, but i really doubt how much you can really apply for real-world cases. With all due respect this course shows a huge contrast with previous course in the interaction design specialisation and really make me feel a bit disappointed.
