18. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Work on speaking better English-hard to understand things with your accent.
None really
To have a grade sheet on laulima to see how we are doing. To return the business plans sooner so we can understand what to do better.
field trips to small business places around the area?
course grade should be readily available
Suggestions would be to start discussions on a consistent day each week. This will let students know when the end of the week will be if a certain amount of posts is needed per week for a good grade. Also, a more quick response to students' concerns, like a 1-2 day turn-around, would be most helpful.
Maybe writing up a better lecture for the weekly assignments. Perhaps using more PDF formats, so all students are able to access the assignments.
none
NA
Sample business plans, or where to find them (her idea of what was a good business plan) would have been very helpful.

21. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
The class always seemed really bored and unhappy to be there, maybe try and make your future classes more exciting!
Shes a great person and a great teacher
I learned stuff in this class.
She did not always get assignments or grades back to students on time; however, if you turned in an assignment early, she would let you revise it to get a better grade. It was a relaxed environment, and I learned about how much is really involved in starting a business.
She is soft spoken yet can be very blunt-- which is great.
I thought the class was interesting but it did not seem that the instructor put a lot of effort into this class.
Don't know
Great experience. Professor made a class- that I was frustrated with being required to take at first- interest, fun and worth while!
Seems to care very much about her work.
22. The instructor actively listened to students.
