"Participation matters" "Would take again" "Clear grading criteria"

Took her for Special Projects. She was very clear on the assignment and broke down the paper to easy chunks. I loved having her and she made my last semester bearable. Just don't miss your research time!!!

"Gives good feedback" "Get ready to read" "Participation matters"

Dr. Babbs is an amazing person. She interacts with students weekly. 13 quizzes are HARD! Discussion post must me 200 words long and you must reply to two classmates post 50 word minimum. One writing assignment. Get to choose between two options. You must read the book and hope to pass quizzes. One 1-2 page paper. No test. Course work load just ok!

PSY 3311 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Her instructions are clear and she makes herself available to all students. The subject matter is a lot to take on but the way the assignments are laid out it never feels overwhelming. Just be prepared to actually read your book and participate in her discussion posts.

PSY-3311 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B+

This is an amazing professor. I've had many classes with her and they are by no means "easy" classes. You do have opportunities for extra credit, READING THE BOOK IS A MUST, you can't pass just reading the powerpoints. Her class is not for a lazy person; it's self paced with weekly discussions, article review, four 30-question multiple choice tests

Psy2310 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Took this course during summer and as long as you read the chapters you'll do great on the tests. There were 4 multiple choice tests and 10 discussion posts (2 replies). No right or wrong answers for discussions but you should answer the question and be knowledgeable of what you are arguing. Very helpful if you have questions.

Psych 3320 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B

Her instructions are precise. Her exams are somewhat difficult. But taking the course online wasn't too bad since you're able to take the tests online. The final paper was the worst. Her instructions aren't very clear. And she criticizes you when you make minor mistakes.

I loved this professor. She was very helpful and everything was laid out from the beginning. There was a group powerpoint that had me a little worried because of online course but I ended the semester with an A.

I loved this professor very sweet. She was very helpful and everything was laid out from the beginning. Test were not timed but needed to study answers not just in your face in the textbook. There was a group powerpoint that had me a little worried because of online course but I ended the semester with an A.

psych2310 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Thought this was the most low maintenance ONLINE course ever (human growth and development) four tests. lot of material to read the day before a test but doable. discussion due each monday very easy. Only thing I had to rush to finish was the MyVirtualChild assignment which was available all semester - not her fault. Overall take online EZ BREEZY

ONLY take her if there is absolutely positively no one else teaching this course because she is impossible! I am finishing up her online Summer III course and I'm hanging onto my B for dear life! She offered us extra credit, but only 5 points. I know beggars can't be choosy but geeze! 11 insanely HARD quizzes and 10 easy discussions. Good Luck!!

THIS HAS BEEN THE WORST CLASS I'VE EVER TAKEN AT UHD. THE QUIZZES HAS ALMOST NOTHING TO DO WITH THE NOTES OR BOOK YOUR USING. YOU CAN SPEND 3 DAYS OVER ONE CHAPTER BUT ONCE IT COMES DOWN TO THE QUIZ, YOU REALIZE NOTHING GIVEN TO YOU BY THE PROF TO STUDY IS ON THE QUIZ. THIS CLASS WILL RUIN YOUR GPA! RUN!

Human Growth and Development-Fall 2011. I agree with the previous rater. Babbs class is very dull and dry. We came to class and she read off the powerpoint every class. The class is an easy class to pass. There were weekly discussions, a midterm and a final. She does give reviews for exams. She is not strict on attendance and is very laid back.

You ask her a question and she wont know the answer she will ask you to look through your book! Quizzes are difficult sometimes impossible. you have to read The chapters a couple of times. Cant rely on her notes they dont match the book! Boring class she literally reads off of her notes people just showed up for exams!!

This turned out to be a great class! Weekly discussions, article reviews, and one paper - nothing too painful. No exams! Dr. Babb is down-to-earth and very accessible. It's also easy to see she loves what she is doing. I enjoyed her enthusiasm and am really glad I took this class. Highly recommend!

I have taken her two semesters in a row. She is easy and organized but you have to do the work. She does not curve grades. I passed both classes. Great Instructor!
