Below are quotes by students taken from my CIEQ instructor evaluation forms. Each quote is given by a different student. Thus, no student is represented more than once below. Please note that there were two sections of the course in 2012, so there are more quotes from that year than others. Also, note that I did not teach the course in 2011 and I recorded fewer quotes prior to that year.
