Disorganized. Frustrating. She randomly adds assignments. Majority of students were confused throughout the semester as to what she wanted. Our "collaboration" with Canadian teachers was poorly managed, little information was given to go on. She is condescending when talking to group, nice one on one. Don't take class if you don't have to.

I feel disrespected by this prof. She is disorganized, inefficient, all while being condescending. I get the feeling she is full of herself and her importance. Also concerned with racial issues, as she seems to favor the asian students. Previous demeaning comments about less intelligent people show you the caliber of students who respect he.

She knows how to help you question your assumptions.I thought I knew a lot about testing. But she began with some questions and this helped me be more open to finding answers. Some others want THE answers but I enjoyed inquiry & learned more than expected. I loved how she challenged us. She didn't just give a model to imitate. We created our own.

Loved the course's sense of community and collaboration. She made it open and to discuss very difficult ideas. I thought I was not going to do well in such a class. But I learned so much.The assignments were open-ended and lots of feedback. No grading until end. People shared ideas in assignments helping make final project manageable &meaningful.

Where is my rating? Posted 2 weeks ago and it's gone! This prof is the most disorganized and baffling teacher EVER. Could not keep things straight, changed assignments midstream, missed several classes, some topics in class seemed completely irrelevant. No grading till the end, no idea how well you were doing in class, incorrect syllabus, STAY AWAY

We had a meeting about a very important paper I sent weeks in advance. She show up late, cut our allotted time short, and it seemed like she was reading it for the first time. Took over a month of emailing and calling to even get a meeting. I get that she's busy, but this wasn't isolated incident. So disorganized, don't waste your time.

if you are a slacker, don't take this course.She'll work your... & you'll thank her for it later. One of the most meaningful classes I have taken. It made me think about testing in a different light.I think her fault is that sometimes she lets some less capable students dominate the class with their needs-though helpful for review-they slow it down

Knowledgeable teacher but completely disorganized and always at least 15 minutes late to class. Hard to follow her notes, directions, and agendas. Not very culturally responsive teaching practices.
