All content was related and helpful, the only issue I see is the final assessment, peer graded. It looks like some students who want to get feedback on others', do not read the answers at all !

Pretty good course. In my opinion the reading material was a bit brief and did not really cover the quiz questions. Other than that though it was pretty clear and relatively easy to understand.
