Professor Cheit is an amazing, dedicated professor and a real asset to Brown. It's true, he doesn't coddle his students but he is fair, committed to his studentsand smart as hell. You have to work when you're in his class but it's more than worth it. By far my favorite professor at Brown.

ps182 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I wanted to like this class. But he was disorganized and would be at best dismissive of any comments not perfectly supporting him. Mostly he would try to encourage discussion then shoot down everyone. liked brown nosers. Even with getting a good grade in the class and liking the reading I will avoid him.

This guy is really quite a bad teacher -- and watch out for a crazy temper and childish fits. I found him very self-satisfied and smug, but not smart or informed. Oh well!

PS0010 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I didn't really like this class, I feel as though it would be a good half-semester class, all the essays are redundant and i just have to believe there is more to public policy than efficiency equity and effectiveness. Cheit also encourages participation but then constantly shoots down those who speak...

PS 10 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He was a really nice guy, and the classes weren't that boring. However, I didn't feel like I learned all that much from this class.

Cheit is probably the most helpful prof I've encountered at Brown. His class is a work in progress so I won't judge him on it. He's extremely knowledgable and has a great ability to lead and provoke discussion without dismissing viewpoints or making students feel stupid.

Class was somewhat redundant and very basic, quite dull as a public policy class... Cheit is involved but not the most organized nor most exciting lecturer
