TOP REVIEWS FROM POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY: CHARACTER, GRIT AND RESEARCH METHODS
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!
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.
i am so happy that i graduated. The course has helped me understand more. Now when i learn this course in class i can easily see that i am ahead of others in understanding it
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!
