The students thought Professor Lovejoy was a good instructor and explained the course material well. Unfortunately, students thought the grading scheme was very unfair. They thought the instructions were too vague and unclear, resulting in unfair grades. Most students thought that different TAs graded very differently, also resulting unfair grading. Students suggested that TAs should be more polite.

Professor Lovejoy was very enthusiastic and articulate in his teaching, and was seen as a repository of knowledge when it comes to his field. Nevertheless, most of the students who commented were disappointed with the lab component, noting that, though the lab experience was of high value, the marking was overly subjective and the expectations were not clearly laid out. This complaint was especially significant since the course has no exams; 100% of the marks are based on lab reports. Students recommend for future that a clear marking scheme to be laid out for labs and marks be normalized between lab sections and teaching assistants. Nonetheless, students found Professor Lovejoy to be very helpful and fun instructor.

Many felt that the TAs weren't as useful as they could have been however and criticized the perceived lack of communication between TAs and the Professor as on occasion students were given differing messages from each.
