Penn has its own system set up called "Penn Course Review" where you get basically ratings on course, prof, and course difficulty, etc. You need a pennkey to get in though, so if you aren't a penn student, I'm not sure it's accessible?
hey people, what are the easier classes/profs out there? How do you find easy classes at Penn? Is there a median grade report ? I plan on taking 3 hard sciences and need something easy to balance my woekload. Thanks
newposter, when you get your pennkey you will be able to log into Penn Course Review. Search by class and it will tell you the difficulty as rated by students for each course section and professor. What sciences are you taking?
Thanks Crashingwaves. I know the Penn Course Review but I am wondering if there are others in addition to that. It will be nice if people can list their own experience. The three sciences are physics, Biology and chemistry.
oh we know about ratemyprofessors, but the information there is not linked to courses, and more importantly, not university-funded or supplied.
specifically, towards the end of every semester ratings surveys are distributed to every student in a class, and the response rate is usually very high - all results are compiled and published by the university on course review.
that's why the difficulty ratings on course review are usually accurate / respected, while anyone could put info on ratemyprofessors.
