Took this is onlinr-4 week summer session. It is a lot of reading and writing (2 major papers and 2 smaller discussions each week). Tests are difficult and pick out small details that, if you aren't paying attention while reading, you can over look. One of the hardest classes (and I have my BS already).

How is it possible to score 90-100% on every assignment, meet all of her guidelines for the 2 written assignments & she scores them 65% & below?? Slow to respond or update grades. Her online grading scale isn't designed to reflect an overall grade that measures the student's knowledge. You can ACE your quizzes & participation still make a D.

I don't know if everyone else had a different teacher than me or something but she was awful. Her quizzes are open-ended and could have multiple possible correct answers, she doesn't grade papers until literally 2 months later, and I have emailed her 3 times starting 3 months ago and still have yet to receive a response. DO NOT TAKE HER!

Fantastic teacher! Funny, smart, helpful, and she really cares about her classes. We always had great discussions, and she uses fun videos, etc. to teach class.

Took her online class this past semester. Her writing assignments are very strict and it is graded more for grammatical errors rather than the actual guidelines. I felt that all my assignments met her requirements but they did not. The class itself is not that hard. Just make sure you check the class each day.

The class was easy, but you really have to know your stuff and READ the assignments every week! Dont forget to do that or else, you'll fail. I took her online so thats why the interesting rating is low.

What can I say about Professor Wiggins. She is the best history teacher one can ever have. You may absolutely hate history but she will make you fall in love with it all over again. Her tests are super easy. Multiple choice is from the bolded words in the chapter. The short answer is from her class notes. She even bumbs your grade.

She is such a great teacher! Even if you're not into history, she is so passionate about what she's talking about that it's impossible not be interested. Attendance isn't mandatory, but I recommend going, it will always be entertaining! If you just do the few assignments, take notes, and go over the book before tests you will

She was the best history teacher I ever had. That was three years ago, this is long overdue. I wish she well and happy.

Prof. Wiggins is awesome! History is not my best subject yet I used to count the hours to go to her class. Her tests are pretty easy the first test is the hardest and then from the second test to the last, keeps getting easy. For the tests, for the multiples choice study the terms in the book. For fill in the blank, study lecture notes!

Dr. Wiggins is by far the most interesting professor! She is always engaging in her lectures and makes it fun to learn about history. I use to dislike history until I took her class! I look forward to it! On a side note, she's a fashionista. Love her!

LOVE Ms. Wiggins! I have never enjoyed History, but she made every bit of it fun. Her assignments are straight forward and she's not picky, and her tests are straight forward too. You only need the book for chronology, so borrow one instead of buying it. The rest of the test is from lecture so attend class. She is funny too! Love her stories.
