This Is Why I Love Student Evals, Part I
And now let me bore you with my student evaluations. It only happens twice a year, so I feel entitled to some self-aggrandizement.
These are from the section that I kept complaining about:
Her extensive knowledge helped us understand difficult subjects.
Knew what she taught, was very thorough on how she wanted things to be done so no confusion.
Clarissa teaches w/ a lot of enthusiasm and understands the material she taught us very well.
She knew the material, has a friendly demeanor, grades fair.
She’s very friendly and approachable and did her best to ensure we understood the material.
She knew the material well and was very helpful in learning to understand the material.
She is very helpful & speaks at a speed that I can understand. I liked the variety of lecture, group work, & movies that were used. It’s nice to not have only lecture every day. Overall I like this course & I believe she is a great professor.
The teacher had a good understanding of the life, culture, and other issues in Spain.
I learned about the culture of Spain and the instructor was great about helping outside the class.
–Very knowledgeable. -Very understanding. -Answered questions thoroughly. -Course well organized and clear syllabus.
Professor made the course interesting and memorable. She did not provide an overload of information and because of this, I learned a lot from her. The book was not very effective and bored me to death, but Clarissa’s handouts and stories were fantastic.
The instructor is always pleasant, cheerful, and explains things well and multiple times; I can tell she wants us to do well in the course.
And the best one:
She is SO fun, outgoing, & understanding. All of us really felt she wanted the best for us. She never yelled or got mad. She was always helping & nice.
Yeah, I never yelled. Was that a possibility, I now wonder?
Once again, these are the evaluations from my worst section last semester. I didn’t pre-select them in any way but just copy-pasted them from the file I was given (removing my real name, of course).
