Quarter Taken: Fall 2017 Submitted Dec. 17, 2017 Grade Received: A-

Horrible horrible class. I had crippling anxiety and walking into this class tipped me over the edge. Her homeworks are overload and are carelessly created (full of mistakes and unclear directions) -- however because of this she is lenient on the grading. The group "quizzes" she assigned took an entire weekends worth of time and she ended up handing out A's to everyone that completed it.

Contradicts herself a lot during lecture and has an attitude. For example in the beg of the quarter she would get mad at people who would just listen to her instead of taking notes, and she said "What are you guys doing? You guys should be typing and not just listening... you need to turn this in. Please get busy". Later on during the quarter when we are typing what she's typing, she yells "Can you guys please stop typing. Just listen.".

Always lets us out late -- this is a problem because she opens up submission forms for in class participation activities when class is supposed to be dismissed and she talks about the weekends homework assignment after the class is supposed to end.... always end up being 5 minutes late to my next class.

Last thing: Grading is very inconsistent. First 3 or so quizzes were grader rather rigorously. Average was a C, but towards the end the quiz averages were 90-95. Not sure whether this class was curved or raw scored, but if it was curved, this method makes it impossible to beat the class average and better your grade especially if you got off to a poor start.

Tips for prof: End class on time and make more manageable homeworks. Also keep grading consistent please.

Quarter Taken: Winter 2018 Submitted April 26, 2020 Grade Received: B

She 'taught' programming by making us manually type out lines of code that she had printed out on paper. Verbatim.

One of the variable names on her exam was "rabindranath", so we had to manually write that out every time we needed to reference it on the exam.

Worthless professor
