"Participation matters" "Respected by students" "Get ready to read"

Very nice instructor. if you have a crisis she wont mind you leaving class. will give quizzes after going over every chapter. Tests are usually straight forward, will almost always have 1 essay question pertaining to lecture so paying attention is mandatory. will provide printed out notes and a study guide. fill it out and you will survive.

PSYC 210 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A
"Respected by students" "Big time extra credit" "Clear grading criteria"

Traci is passionate and personable. She lectures and writes her tests in grown up language (hard for some). However, her quizzes are taken in groups, her exams have great curves. Writing assignments are few and easy. Most the work is at the beginning of the semester so you can "coast through finals" (her words). Provides study guide for exams.

151 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: C

She is the sweetest teacher I've had, but she can't teach. Her lectures were boring and I couldn't keep up with it. She DOES NOT give any study guides to study for the tests. The tests are EXTREMELY difficult. I would not take this class if you're wanting to get an A.

psych101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A+

One of the best teachers I've ever had. If you do the work it is impossible not to learn. She makes you use your own independent critical thought to understand the topics by writing about them in your own words, which can be hard~some don't like that. I thought it was a great class and She's by far tops out of the psych dept. here. Great Teacher

Psych 151 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B+

Hard class but a good teacher. She helps her students and her lectures are not that confusing. Her tests are hard, but she gives you a study guide with everything on it. She also lets you use your notes on some tests. I liked her.

PSY151 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Probably the worst teacher I have ever had. She is hard and she doesn't always explain well. She is suppose to be teaching to undergraduates and she acts like we are graduate students. Her test are ridiculous and you can try and study all you want but she gives you 40 mins to take a test that should take you 2 hours. She lets you use your notes sometimes and but she pulls the questions from the test out of her ass so you can't ever find the answer. I do not recommend her.

Psych 251 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

Traci's lectures are very psychology vocab based. Word choices were confusing for others that were taking the course. She gives you an booklet at the beginning of the semester. Most quizzes and exams are based on the book. Read your chapters and pay attention in class, and you will do fine. She is really fun and great to chat with.

She's really nice and funny at times. Her lectures can be a little confusing at times but as long as you read the text and do the study guides you should be fine.

psych 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She is SO hard to understand! She talks around the subject. And she expects you to just automatically understand what she means. You have to teach yourself by reading the text book, but she also throws in her own questions that are not in the book. WORST TEACHER I HAVE EVER HAD!!!!

PYSCH 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

She's a very nice person, but her lectures are often confusing. You need to read the textbook to learn in the class. On her tests, you need to read the questions several times to understand what she means.

Traci is a very nice person, down to earth, but her exams are no picnic! However, if you do the assignments they pay off plus she drops the lowest test grade and does offer extra credit!

PSYCH 153 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I'm shocked to see negative reviews here. She gives you every opportunity to succeed in this class. You have to do the work, if you do, an A shouldn't be a problem. SHE PROVIDES DETAILED STUDY GUIDES FOR EVERY TEST! If you don't use them or complete them....it's your fault. I plan to take every class I can with her.

She is hard to understand. She bounces around thought to thought. No Homework really but some worksheets - about things she never mentioned or taught. Nice teacher but you will learn nothing. To pass her class OR her tests it's all self taught. I busted my butt for my B and even had to use success center. Expects you to read her mind on tests..

Do NOT take this teacher for an online course! I just finished taking her Psyc 210 course online and she was completely USELESS! She still hasn't graded either essays (due in september and november) and the final is over. I am still unsure of what my final grade is. I tried to email her, call, and leave voice mails and got nothing in return. AWFUL!

I just finished one of her online courses and this is the worst teacher I have ever had in my life. Things have not been graded, I have called, left voice mails, emails etc. And she has never returned any. DO NOT TAKE THIS TEACHER!!!!!

PSYCH210 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I'm in her online class this semester and have been thoroughly disappointed in the lack of communication by the teacher. None of us know what's going on, even those of us who contacted the head of department and other school resources. I wonder if something serious happened. How are her in-person classes doing?
