"Would take again" "Gives good feedback" "Clear grading criteria"

Not an easy class, must read to do well on tests (8 week class, 2 chapters a week most wks). But the information is extremely interesting and doctor Valenti is very helpful. I could tell she cared. Class is laid out clearly and she always answers questions and presents interesting info. I'll take more of her classes!

"Tests are tough" "There for you" "Gives good feedback"

The course is laid out really well and Dr. Valenti is quick to answer questions. Very fair with grading. I did pretty good on the tests because I read-- reading is a must. Tests are open book and she usually extends the time. Definetely there for the students and wants us to learn. Make sure you buy the book (used edition is fine). Good class!

"Gives good feedback" "Get ready to read" "Respected by students"

This online class is laid out very well, easy to follow. If you read the book you will do fine on quizzes. Teacher gives great feedback and works with students, you can tell she cares. Always responds to emails, is helpful. The class material is superb.

PSY 101 Taken for Credit: Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: C
"Tough Grader" "Assignments galore" "Get ready to read"

Tests. Tests. Tests. 1 a week, worth 100 points each. Also 1 post each week (100 pts ea). Final paper was only worth as many points as a post and took triple the effort... Be prepared to read, each week is also based on multiple chapters. This class felt like information overload and the teacher was so distant I'm surprised I remember her name.

"Inspirational" "Hilarious" "Gives good feedback"

She now teaches at GCU, and boy did this school get a winner! Really likes to probe the students for deep knowledge and likes to take them under her wing. For some reason though she seems obsessed with Justice Studies topics lately. Maybe a new inspiration has entered her life.

"Get ready to read"

This class has a quiz, discussion posts due every week. As long as you got your reading done, the quiz was straight forward and the discussion post came from what was read or personal opinion about a topic. I enjoyed the class and the professor responded quickly to questions in hallway conversations board. The syllabus clearly understandable.

Her directions for assignments were not clear enough. I felt like she expected me to be able to read her mind and know what she wanted out of an assignment. I have never been so frustrated with a class as I was with this one. By far the worst online class I have ever taken.

PSY 385 Taken for Credit: Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: A

Each week either has a 15 question quiz or an assignment. Quizzes are straight from book, assignments take some time and effort. She does actually go through and read them and grades for grammar, content, the whole shabang. The at the end is a 2 page film analysis which is fairly straightforward. Pretty easy and recommended class.

PSY 324 Taken for Credit: Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Discussion post/response every week; weekly quizzes and 3 exams. Exam 3 is semi cumulative, so review notes from the beginning. Received 29/30 as lowest discussion board grade, and received 100% for 5 page essay-based on 5 journal readings. Exam Qs are straight from text, but you must read. Would have received A if would have read all material.

Lots of reading, get the text book as an eBook will save lots of time by searching easy quizzes if you do it this way. She was little nit picky on papers that were written but I though she graded fairly on them.

This was a horrible class. Seems like basic information but the quizzes and papers don't align with the information. She is unresponsive and I will never take a course with her again, nor will I recommend this course to anyone.

Terrible professor. Does not know how to link videos properly. Gives poor feedback, lacks clarity in what is expected from assignments. Will fail you on most assignments for minor errors. Even if you fix errors she will nitpick your work and give you worse grades than if you didnt even try. Will never take her again.

Online class, tests seem easy straight out of the book however teacher is difficult to please when it comes to weekly papers. You can have one minor mistake in your paper and that will get you a F on the assignment will never take anything with her again

PGS 100 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This professor has been the worst i have ever taken. She was not helpful at all, and she is so far up her own behind she forgets she was a student once. She is quick to tax your work for points just to prove that she is doing her job. However, the textbook practically does the job for her because her lectures are poorly prepared.

I wasn't a fan of the textbook or the material covered in this class, I was expecting something different but it was a pretty easy class. She gives you an outline of exactly what you need to do and how many points everything is worth. Tests are easy and straight from the book.

Prof Valenti is awesome! Loved her class, as long as the work is done and you do not just turn bad effort in, she is fair.
