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.
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!
Claire you did an AMAZING job having me listen and absorb all about statistics, every class again.. I had never expected I could be so attached to a statistics class. Thank you very much.
Angela Duckworth is simply incredible. All her video put a smile on my face. And Claire Robertson-Kraft is makes research very comprehensive! Thank you both for this amazing course!
A bit of a struggle to learn the technical terms, but helpful in understanding and appreciating the scientific approach to researching various approaches to positive psychology.
This is an excellent course as an introduction to reading and understanding research. As an early stages post grad student, I have benefitted enormously from this course.
An exciting introductory course for understanding research design and analysis. Highly recommended for beginners in research. Thanks Dr. Duckworth and Dr. Kraft.
love the class. read Angela's book several times as I used resilience in my dissertation years ago and was familiar with the foundational studies. Thank you!
I thought one of the ideas behind this course in helping people find an easy way to read research articles and not be intimidated by the process was great!
Angela Duckworth is amazing, she is an expert and example of Grit, thank you so much for your honesty and authentic search of meaning and purpose.
I think this course is very creative, not only it talk about grit but also to educate people on knowledge about proper scientific research.
Not a stats person, but they made this part of the course easier to follow than I anticipated. Looking for more on line stats courses.
I have learnt a lot everyday attending the courses. However, there are really parts which I find them a bit difficult to understand.
Outstanding course lectures/videos, supporting literature and content. I learned a tremendous amount of new material! Thank you!
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.
I studied statistics at achelor and MBA level. I am sure finally I understood the essence, the meaning of it :-) Thank you!
This course is great for learning about how to discern statistics. Of course, it also includes the research on grit....
I learned a lot from this course. It inspired me to conduct a research on well being parents and their parenting style
Enjoyed Angela Duckworth's lectures and I learned a lot about research methods. I'm fascinated with the study of grit.
Awesome mix of instructors. Made me understand how research is done. One more step on the positive psychology ladder.
