Though i have nightmares of research design from my undergraduate career, this puts a neat spin on it and reminds the sheer importance of it. Thanks for the reminder of what is important UPENN!
It was a wonderful class! While I was expecting something different than learning about research and how to read research papers, that is my fault for putting my expectations on the class.

This was a challenging course- there was not a lot of attendance when I went through so I had to wait and reestablish my deadlines twice to get the opportunity to review my peers and be graded by peers.

I took this course to understand how to apply Positive Psychology. This course focuses heavily on creating research, which was not my goal. I did appreciate the module on how to UNDERSTAND research.

Went in expecting for the course to be heavier on the character/grit material so I was surprised how much more focused it was on research methods, but I am satisfied nonetheless!

Overview of research methods was ease, but clear. Grit research was interesting. But it was a bit messed up because themes of psychology and research methods were mixed.
By Marlene S•
There were quite a few mistakes (even in titles) in the written content, such as spelling, grammar, etc. which makes learning less enjoyable.
By Alvin L•
I have learnt a lot everyday attending the courses. However, there are really parts which I find them a bit difficult to understand.
By Elisabeth d R•
Learned a lot of valuable things on research studies which will help me better analyze. And the grit topic was very interesting.
By Kenneth M•
I love the teaching and learning of the course a great deal. Waiting on the peers to grade and that process was not as fun.
By Evelisa Q•
I think the material in this course is hard and not very easy to grasp, but the videos and exercises made it doable.
By Tamara B M•
It's a little more nuts and bolts of research that doesn't really interest me as much as some of the other courses.
By Tania M A•
Great course! Altough, I think a different level of interaction from both facilitators would be more interesting
By Lisa B•
Very informative. Valuable information to have a general understanding of. Thank you for sharing this with us.
By Lim Z•
A bit on the dry side but learnt a lot of technical skills, especially how to approach a research paper.
By Steve O•
Interesting and valuable mixing a knowledge of grit with a useful introduction to research methodology.
Thanks this course, I know how to make more accurate experiment and make me know more useful method.
By Jusleine D•
I enjoyed the materials shared, I just did not like the quality of the recorded videos
By Matthew G G•
Excellent course overall. I wish there was a way to download the powerpoint slides.

Made me broad-minded about research and observation knowledge. Great course!
By Terry C•
A good course, but it makes heavy weather of understanding research issues.
By Hans A•
Much too theoretical, talks by Duckworth were very interesting and funny.
By Richard B•
Good basic introduction to research methods form an academic perspective.
By Kevin S•
Great professors and content. The only issue is I don't like research!!!
I would have liked to learn more about Grit than Research Methods.
By Dr. M A M•
un curso necesario para validar todos los procesos metodológicos .
By Jane H W•
Liked this course, Content was a good review of research methods.
