How many "hard" TAships have you completed here?

 

Would you be interested in extra TAing for extra compensation?

Preferences for TA Assignment 2011-12

INSTRUCTIONS: Please rate at least 2/3 of the courses offered each term. (If you are not qualified for that many courses, please use the comment area to explain.) If you have not yet TA'd for PSYC 1001, please include all sections of it in your ratings. If you are due to TA for a "hard" course, your rated courses should include all of the 4 pt. courses for which you are qualified to TA.

The rating scale: 1 = very happy; 2 = happy; 3 = somewhat happy; 4 = OK; 5 = moderately unhappy; 6 = unhappy

For each course you rate, use the pull-down menu to indicate your preference. Assign a rating of 1 to your first choice courses, 2 to your second, and so on._ For instance, "1_1610x" means that, all things considered, you would be very happy to TA for 1610, and "2_1420y" means you would be happy to TA for 1420 . NOTE: Use ratings of 5 and 6 very sparingly, and when you do, please justify them in the Comment area.

*: "Hard" courses include 4 pt courses and all courses involving lab or discussion sections.

Extra Comp TAships work well in lab sections, but may also be approved for a lecture course. Students able and willing to do an extra-comp TAship will receive priority consideration for lab TAshps. Note that you must have the approval of your research advisor and the DGS for an extra-compensation TAship.

Grad TAships: Ideally, TA positions in the "Grad" column will be filled by graduate students. However, since there are more TAs needed than we have graduate students, some of these may need to be filled by undergraduate or postbac TAs. New grad students will not be assigned to lead lab or discussion sections unless they have prior TA or teaching experience.

Undergrad TAships: The number of positions in this column will depend on need and on availability of suitable undergraduates or postbacs. Need, in turn, will be determined by course enrollment and availability of graduate TAs.
