She is OK but you'd better take the course with other prof (research first).She is inconsistent with marking.She rarely give good grades although the course is not hard. she doesn't give much attention on how to explain the assignment first. she forgets sometimes and just post it online and u figure out.She is used to dealing with online students

cmn279 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Very inconsistent with her grading. The amount of hard work i put in to the assignments and thought i got a good grade on turned out to be way out of the line. Marks way to hard and makes you loose marks for no reason.

Decent professor. I took her class online and did very well. She does take long time to return assignments. But still I would rather take the class with her than other professors. TAKE IT ONLINE. The class is lot easier. Her marking is also really easy because my English is weak but still I ended up with high grades.

CMN279 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I took this course online during the summer. For those who have to take this course, take it online - it's soooo much easier!! However, do not take it with this prof! She takes over a month to return assignments and is VERY inconsistent in her grading! The amount of time she took to grade didn't reflect any additional effort put into marking!

CMN279 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Provides very clear instructions but does not know how to grade assignments. Provides insulting feedback such as "illiterate" on work completed. Does not properly follow the marking rubric. Be prepared to lose self esteem in her class.

Great prof. When it came to assignments, she took the time to provide you with a ton of feedback about your work. Even through taking the course online, she was still interested in getting to know everyone. Make sure to participate on the discussion boards. Overall good course and great prof!

I personally think that this person should NOT be allowed to teach!!! I had my assignments originally graded by her looked over by 2 technical writters and another instructor who teaches this course and they thought there was nothing wrong with them. However, Alexandra downgraded them for no reason.

whatever you do dont take this class! (well with her) she's as tough as they get and not clear about what you should do for the next assignment. she doesnt even like to give you participation even if u did for every class.

Alexandra is the most awsome professor. She's the best at Ryerson. People - TAKE COMMUNICATION COURSES WITH HER AND YOU WILL BREEZE THROUGH. She should be the chair of the department. I MISS HER.
