CIV 202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This man cannot teach and is not personable. extra credit helps you pass, but you don't learn much. If you want to prevent na headache, don't take him.

CIV 202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: A

Dr. Clardy is so educated and articulate. However, getting him to tell you what you need to know for the test is like pulling teeth. You'll have to meet with him in person if you feel like you don't have enough information to do well on the test, which is fine. He gives so much extra credit, so you should be fine in this class!

His309 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Clardy is one of those professors that I will never take again. He knows what he's talking about but his teaching skills are severely lacking. He says his classes are hard to fail, but then grades his tests, quizzes and papers in an extremely hard way. Gets the feeling that he play favorites and doesn't read term papers. He also doesn't take roll.

Clardy is one of those professors that I will never take one of his classes again. He knows what he's talking about, but his teaching skills are severely lacking. He says its hard to fail his class but then grades his tests, quizzes and papers in a way that almost ensures failure. Feels like he plays favorites and that he doesn't read papers.

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

AVOID. He's entertaining, but teaching is not his strongest skill. Don't let him catch you with your phone even near you, he'll hold it against you for the entire semester and give you a B when you most certainly deserved an A. Also, he grades his quizzes incorrectly. I was too scared to approach him about this as he is rather intimidating.

CIV 201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Clardy is a very hard teacher! This year, he took out all of his quizzes so the only things he grades on is tests. He tells you what to study, but then the test is nothing you were studying over! USE THE EXTRA CREDIT OPPORTUNITIES AT ALL COSTS! IT WILL HELP IN THIS CLASS. His slide shows are useless--they are the headlines in the book.

RGS 200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Clardy is one of the most articulate men I have ever met. He has a few memory problems and will frequently repeat himself over the course of a few lessons, but the content is generally good and unbiased. His class is very discussion-based, and everyone is welcome to present his or her view. His workload is very light and his tests are easy.

I really enjoyed Clardy! His class is easy, and attendance isn't mandatory. He gives lots of extra credit opportunities and is very understanding about missing tests and quizzes. He posts his power points on blackboard. If you can get over him being pompous you will do fine in this class.

Dr. Clardy is a horrible teacher. I luckily comprehended what he was saying and what would be on the test. He was the biggest smartass teacher i have ever seen. VERY rude to his students and would act like answering one of our questions was the worst thing he has ever had to do. NEVER reports grades on Blackboard. Still do not know what I have.
