This course was excellent in all aspects, including the interesting and extensive material, as well as Dr. Annemarie Zand Scholten's brilliant lectures that help students digest and enjoy the content.
Excellent course! Well narrated, even entertaining, VERY well structured, with supporting material, and a great mix of theory and examples or discussions. Perhaps the best MOOC I've ever encountered.

Unfortunately the peer review process does not work quite well: I found many learners that stole my material and plagiarized that for their own assignments. I signaled these cases but nothing has been done as far as I can tell.

The concepts were briefed very brilliantly. The content was rich quality wise. The assignments were pretty engaging and helped me apply what i learned rather than just simply state what I learned. Thank you for this course :)

The videos and explanations are great, but I think that some of the activities are too much, very long and some of them very complicated. Another thing I found is that some questions at the exams are a little bit ambiguous.

Great use of examples. I was not thrilled with peer-reviews as some people may give you bad scores with no explanation and/or they may be wrong in their understanding/interpretation of the course material/assignment.

Very nice and interesting!
I learnt a lot. I wish I could make better use of discussion forums. Some questions and few concepts remained unanswered/ not clear, however it was a fantastic experience overall.

I feel this was a good course and gave me a good foundation in quantitative methods. I only give four stars because I would save five stars for something completely mind-blowing, but it's definitely good.

Nice Course, quite some views to digest but good for understanding how social research can/should be done/considered. Repetition required to grasp all these new terms if you are not a social science stu

This is a really good course, comprehensive and useful to anyone wanting to know about quant methods. It's pretty tough and you need to study, but if you finish it you'll definitely learn a lot.

maybe 3.8. There was alot of dated information in the course and unhelpful concepts presented as examples. There was also alot of videos but barely any readings. The videos were presented well.

The only issues with this course are that some of the assignments take a lot more time than they estimate, and that some of the multiple choice questions are a bit confusingly structured.

I enjoyed this course. The lectures were appealing, and the tasks relevant. I enjoyed reviewing other classmates' assignments from around the globe—a very cool idea.

This is my first MOOC and I enjoyed it. The lectures were clear, concise, and interesting. Most of the tests and assignments were relevant and well thought out.

A very good course, just needs more extra info like books and papers to have a more in depth look into quantitative methods. I'd love to read a book on this.
by Sonja M•
Thank you very much. I enjoyed the experience very much. The videos and the material presented are made with a great sense of teaching and made with love:).

I have enjoyed the learning very much. The assignments and quizzes are useful. The interviews at the end of each unit helps me see what happens in reality.
by Catherine A•
It was informative and helpful. On some of the subjects, a bit more detail in the examples would help rather than brief general descriptions.
by Natalia P•
It was a challenging course for someone that only knows quantitative research. Definitely took me more time than estimated (or proposed)
by Catalina c o•
Its great. So complete, you really gain an integral knowledge of the topic. I couldn't finish it because of the amount of homework.
by Ferry V•
Very good, easy to follow. Exams are well designed and offer a good training. Videos can sometimes be a bit boring to watch.
by Gijs v S•
Challenging, but very educational! I really feel I learned a lot and already used my new-found knowledge during my studies.
by Anjela A•
Really good course to build some foundational knowledge on quantitative methods. Assignments are unnecessarily tedious.
by Tiên P•
Good lectures, well-designed videos and tests. However, coordinators are low responsive. No extra reading is provided.
by Liam M•
Good although the peer review system needs work and the quizzes that pop up during videos are annoying and useless
by Rejane R d C P•
Very nice course. I learned a lot. Assessments really make you progress in learning, despite being demanding.

I am a Ph.D. student and this course has greatly contributed to my understanding of social science research.
