Instructors get 5 stars. Content gets 4.5. The 4 star rating due to some issues with the answer key/grading and some of the R assignments expected more knowledge than that presented.

I think that some of the R programming modules were very fast paced, but I enjoyed and learned a lot from this course. I think that when the course is accessed on the mobile platform some of the quiz answers may get shuffled around and be incorrect, but other than that I had no issues with the course.

Everything is alright But there is one problem as coursera is used by every person in the world regardless of it belongs to which state therefore you should also include in this course the examples or discussion about states like especially Pakistan .And also make separate courses on Asian countries with topics economics ,administration etc.

Too many words, too little actions and learning. The links to the material are all over the place. The R environment is extremely slow. The bulk of the time you spend on finding variables in the code-books. I am non the wiser and did not really get what this course intended to teach.
