There were two points from the litany of comments provided for this course that respondents agreed on: (1) Professor Iacovetta was a wonderful professor and (2) the class was very interesting. However, the class was split on numerous issues. For instance, while many students stated that Professor Iacovetta clearly delivered lectures and effectively answered questions, others felt that she rushed through the one-hour lectures. Thus, some would have appreciated it had the lectures been two hours in length. Furthermore, some felt that the expectations of the Professor and of the T.A. were inconsistent. Other prevalent comments were that the marking was unfair, the texts were too difficult for a second year course, and that Professor Iacovetta's handwriting was hard to decipher.

Students felt that the course material was very interesting and some have commented on their interest in taking the second part. Professor Iacovetta was presented as very knowledgeable and engaging. However, some felt that the material was covered too quickly in the short amount of time and that posting lecture notes would have been helpful. Though respected for her enthusiasm in the course material, many students thought the learning experience would be greatly enhanced had the professor utilized more communicative methods such as the Intranet and e-mail. Other concerns were the effectiveness of the course texts, with many students claiming that a textbook would have been better suited for the class than the two novels, and the small amount of time they had to complete a series of long tests that covered a lot of material.

Overall, students seemed to enjoy the material covered in class, but comments were polarized in two areas: Professor Iacouetta's lecture style and the TA. For as many students who enjoyed her lecture style and praised Professor Iacouetta's organizational skills, just as many said she spoke far too quickly and was hard to follow. In addition, many remarked that the TA was helpful, but an equal and just as vocal number of students found the TA's grading harsh and a lack of feedback frustrating. Several students appreciated the professor's understanding of the workload placed on university students in allowing ample time for assignments and to better prepare for tests.
