Our students love the freedom, flexibility and support we offer. See what they're saying about Sophia's courses.

by Kaitlyn B. on March 13, 2017
Very informative. This course had a lot of information but the challenges and Milestones were very straightforward. I thought the material was presented in a way that made it enjoyable to learn.
by James R. on February 28, 2017
First of all, I am not much an art guy so this course was very tedious. Secondly, like many many many other people have already said the format of the quiz questions is very difficult. Many questions have 3 or more parts and if you get one part wrong the entire question is wrong. I felt the instructors and videos were long, the quantity of content very large, and the entire thing boring. I passed and now have credits to transfer into my college at 20% of the cost.
by Lisa J. on February 26, 2017
This course is hard but the tutorials are very great. Do well in units 1-5 because 6 is the hardest. I asked for help by email and the response was fast (next morning) and insightful.
by Cyrus S. on February 26, 2017
This class was very good for being an online program where there is not a professor who you can talk to or ask questions. My only complaint is that occasionally there are misleading questions on tests and the practice milestones could vary greatly from the milestones.
by Justin S. on February 23, 2017
Struggled alot towards the end of the course. Along with teaching concepts, you need a way to actually walk the student through the problems their doing.
Sophia replied on February 23, 2017

Justin - congratulations on your successful course completion! We agree that often students need more than just the teaching of concepts. That's why we supplement the instruction with our team of Learning Coaches. Students in Introduction to Statistics also have access to 24x7 "on demand" tutoring via the "Access a Tutor" button in the course. Both of these resources are designed to help ensure students understand the concepts and how to approach the questions/problems.

More problems with answers would be beneficial to solidify the concepts
by Krystle T. on February 5, 2017
I love SOPHIA! They are so understanding, patient and care for their students. They give you all the tools and support to help you understand each concept. I have dreaded to take Statistics all year and I am so thankful to have found Sophia.org, it was fun to learn! Thanks Sophia!
by Margaret P. on February 2, 2017
I learned a lot in this course, and am glad I took it, but Unit 6 was a big jump in difficulty compared with prior units, which was kind of imbalanced. It would have been helpful to have more conceptual teaching in unit six before getting into the problems. I loved the tutors! They taught so well!
