PSY-ADOL Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Kalia is a very deceiving professor. She appears to be fair; albeit strict. However, her methods are so unfair in how her group assignments are so heavily based on how your partner does (I prefer to work independently now..). She is also very rude and takes advantage of her Doctorate degree as a chance to put down students and their efforts.

PS-312-02 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A-

Professor Kalia is the best professor that I had so far. She is very understanding and wants you to succeed. She is very helpful, no exams, no final or midterm, four quizzes based on lecture (slides are online) and the lowest quiz grade is dropped. She does each assignment step by step and she makes the lecture interesting and fun. Highly recomend!

Dr. Kalia is awesome. I will be taking my third class with her this semester. She really wants you to succeed in her class. Don't bother with the book because all of her exams are on the lecture and powerpoints. She gives a lot of examples when explaining something which really helps. She really cares about her students as well.

Mrs. Kalia is a fantastic teacher. She breaks her class up into different activities (movies, powerpoints, discussion, groupwork) so you don't get bored. The syllabus is clear and the assignments are always written out carefully. Lover her! She is fun and cares about her students

PS307 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Iâ??m an excellent student.Appears to be very nice but is demeaning.Talks very fast & with accent makes it very difficult for us to understand her instructions. Tells us things last minute, quickly & then expects us not worry.She encourages to ask questions,but when you do she gets frustrated & answers are contradicting.Grading table makes no sense.

ps325 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I honestly do not understand the ratings. She is the nicest professor i have taken. she honestly wants all her students to do well, and her assignments are detailed and given in the syllabus on day one, and as long as you attend class and her activites along with a little bit of studying her quizzes are easy.

Very nice woman. As long as you keep up on learning the powerpoints, which she provides for you online. Read the powerpoints and study them to well on the quizzes. No midterm or final, couple easy papers. Cant go wrong.

PSY02 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She seems like a nice enough woman but she cannot teach. She sends mixed messages...she tells us to focus on her notes mainly and not to focus really on the book, but then will tell us we need to read the chapters of the book. Her notes are very vague yet her tests are very detailed. Emphasis is placed on one are of material and the rest is vague.
