The teaching evaluations for this course are split into five sections linked to at left. Prior to the Fall of 2015 I didn't use the standard evaluation form, so the Old Questionnaire has a list of the questions I asked students at the end of the semester. Beginning with Fall 2015 I was forced to use the three standard College of Liberal Arts and Science (CLAS) questions and 11 standard questions for the Political Science Department. To these I added 10 questions of my own. These are all part of the New Questionnaire. The form changed again beginning Fall 2020 and I no longer added questions of my own.
Written comments the students provide are in the Written section. The Miscellaneous section contains comments I receive outside the regular evaluation process. Such comments are usually from former students received via email. Many of these are for former students who are just starting their first year of law school and are writing to let me know how what they learned in this course has given them a headstart on law school.
