Eye opening course. My first introduction to some of the issues surrounding p-values as well as how to better utilize them and what they truly represent. My first introduction to effect sizes as well.
Excellent course. The lecturer has written code snippets that let the students visualize the meaning and interrelationship of p-values confidence-intervals power effect-size bayesian-inference.

Thanks to the creators of this course for putting together an engaging curriculum. One note of criticism is that the assignments for Week 5 required G*power software which as far as I can tell is not available on Linux (I'm running Ubuntu).
The practical examples, specifically the example of the impact of Facebook's A/B testing were particularly interesting. I think this course has improved the tools I have at my disposal for interpreting the language commonly used in academic reporting, and I'm confident the information and tools presented will help in my own research in the coming years.

Good pacing and ratio of exercises/lecture. I found the assignments very useful and the instructions easy to follow. Comparing my performance on the pre-tests and pop quizzes at the beginning of the course to those at the end clearly demonstrates that the coursework honed my stats intuition, and I'm very grateful! The only critical feedback I have is that occasionally, I found the wording of test/quiz questions to be a bit confusing. Thanks!

I would like that pdf for assignment be in another languages. Some concepts can be difficult for a beginner, just to improve, not a major issue.
I want to focus on the time indicated to complete this course. In my experience, I took so much time than the estimated. May i dont have a intermediate level, but I think that, at least, it should be take in consideration.

I find this course very useful, since these are topics that do not stick when you are completely new to statics, but are very useful once you have few years experience in practice. My only remark is that sometimes the multiple choice answers in the quizzes were not clear enough, so a bit confusing.

This course is a great complement to other statistics related courses. Instead of spending time on a bunch of formulas, this class is more about best practices and how to (correctly) apply some of the basic statistical methods.

Great course to dig a bit deeper into some very useful statistical concept. 4 starts as many of the contents are not "open" as the course preaches (see Microsoft Office documents or GPower).

Great course! Highly recommended.
One thing to improve - I would like to see more theory behind the different effect sizes (eta-squared/omega squared/etc)

I recovered my faith in statistics with this course.
Makes me alert not to believe every effect I see in the data.
Teaches to do good science.

It was nice. I initially hoped the course would have made some technical details intuitively graspable, but it was fine as it is.

The course was very useful, I enjoyed Daniel's advice. However, I wasn't able to make R work, so I couldn't do the exams.

Questions are sometimes hard to understand if you are not a native speaker of the English language

Very informative course, well taught and with lots of useful practice built into the assignments.

The video is ok, but it lacks a lot of details in calculation. The assignment is very confusing because some questions refer to some 'previous' statement while fail to clarify which is related.

Good afternoon, I have finished my course since 5th November and I didn't get my certificate yet.

I started just today and I'm beginning to love the course
I dropped the course at Lecture 1.2 when it was supposed to really teach me what is p-value but it failed. A 20 min video without telling much about p-value and also adding more confusion and unanswered questions at the end. Like what is p-value distribution?
I expected to receive a decent step by step tutorial on statistics starting from basics but it was just another convoluted stuff on statistics.
