This course has been absolutely terrific! The knowledge and insight this has briefed me with has been very useful, and makes more than a lot of sense. Thank You Mr. Prinstein, and Thank You Coursera!
This was amazing, really interesting, well presented. A good insight into how our friendships while of school age can impact on our adulthood and how this is so often repeated down the generations.

The material is good and the professor is clear and knowledgable. Hopefully there would be more reference documents recommended.

I liked the course only that I wasn't able to take the quizzes without paying. Thank you for the information, very interesting.

Interesting points of view about popularity, how it affect our lives, and what you can do to improve your kids lives.

This is a good course. Contains a lot of interesting information. However, I found it boring and long at times.

Very informative, but can be a little hard to follow when many pieces of research are analyzed.

Interesting overview of group psychology - but in essence just a bunch of definitions and statistics.
I would have liked more focus on how the group dynamics works and how to influence these - and break the circle of unpopularity, the tools to overcome the aggressive stamp etc.
Also, I found the quizzes often had unclear and ambiguous wording.
Generally happy to have taken the course - but did not quite meet the description or my expectations. Off to the next :-)

It started off really really interesting and I was looking forward to all kinds of information I'm going to learn about. The start was very scientific, an example would be how we learned about different SPI and understood the minds of different category kids but eventually, it got boring and repetitive. I believe the course should have cut shorter because there's not much material there. Although it was a nice course to learn.

The presenter was very articulate and clearly passionate about this topic. However, much of the research cited was approx 20 years old. Given the significant changes in technology during that time and the rise in the the use of social media, it seems to me that the content of the course is not as relevant to todays young people as it could have been.

The speaker was very good in his delivery and presentation. However, I didn't expect the course to be predominantly focused on popularity in childhood and adolescence. That would have been alright as the first half, but more information about popularity in the adult setting or even in social media, would help strengthen the course.

I wish they could let us take the quizzes without having to pay to verify that we have understood the lectures. However, the topic of the course and the lectures are clear and on point. Love the lessons so far!

I like the studies used in the course and the professor's way of presenting them. I think the quizzes could have been more challenging and that there should be more interaction with the professor and students.

Pretty ok in terms of the depth of topic and the instructor engages your attention.
Would've liked to see more recent research; most of the research was from the 80s and 90s.

Very interesting course, not being able to take the tests without upgrading hurts the experience
