Pre-course survey SOCI832: Advanced Quantitative Methods, 2019
This is a survey to help me to get to know you at little better before class starts.
1. YOUR HOPES AND PRIOR KNOWLEDGE: The main purpose is to help me understand what you are hoping to get out of the course, and also what your current skills and knowledge levels are.
I hope this will help me tailor the course to your needs.
2 .COMMUNICATION METHODS: Towards the end of the survey I ask about your preferred communication methods. You are under no obligation to provide any of these details if you don't want.
I provide these options because email is often quite ineffective for communicating with students these days.
In addition, often students require significant assistance with overcoming typos and error messages when they are learning R and R Studio, and this should make our communication easier.
3. GOOGLE DOCS: I ask for your preferred email address for accessing Google Docs because we will be using a collaborative Google Doc in class, and I want to give you all permission to access before class so we reduce the technical issues during class.
I look forward to meeting you all in class next week.
