Great experience to develop organizational skills and be a part of a team.
Pros: good atmosphere and enjoyable professors.
Cons: short notice of tasks from other professors in the department
Every week my responsibilities included entering grades for 500 students in General Psychology, attending classes to take notes for students with accommodations, meeting with and helping develop the instructional team, running statistics on grades, and creating graphs and charts for the professor to present findings.
I learned quick ways to manage a large amount of assignments while creating a system to be organized with over 25 assignments that are collected. It was also a good opportunity to help develop the instructional team and find solutions to effectively developing coursework.
My sole responsibility was working with 6 sections of General Psychology maintaining accuracy and confidentiality with entering grades, and holding students to certain standards.
In the psychology department there were 4 graduate assistants who helped professors in the department. It was enjoyable because we would all help each other out and remain organized and communicate to ensure all tasks were completed.
The hardest part of the job was developing a system to enter a large amount of grades at one time, and also creating spreadsheets for test statistics on over 12,500 samples.
The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the instructional team and the professor. Everyone was friendly and open to learning which made the experience unique.
