Teaching evaluation


What students say about me.

anonymous comments

I ask students to anonymously comment on my teaching and their learning. Here are all the responses I received for the following years and semesters:

Comments for 2007 fall are not shown here, because the comment sheets were scanned (instead of being typed) and the handwriting might identify the writer. Although I would prefer to have the comments typed and displayed, this is unlikely due to lack of resources.

Comments for English Online are not shown here, because I have been unable to thematically categorize comments. Again, this is unlikely to materialize due to lack of resources.
