Unsolicited feedback from students
"I usually struggle with when to use t-tests and how they work, but the way you presented the information was very helpful.
I think it was the way you seemed to explain everything without skipping over any important information and how you connected it to the other information on Wilcoxon W test, Shapiro-Wilk tests etc. It also helped that you explained clearly when to use each test and why you would/wouldn't use it
."
"Just watched your lectures for 344 on t-tests and wanted to say thank you for your clarity and amazing teaching. I have always been afraid of statistics and never really understood the concepts until you explained them so clearly. "
