4. Other comments:
Instructor loves her area of expertise and communicates to the students with enthusiasm and sincerity.
Landry makes sure that we understand the materials she wants us to learn by reviewing anything that we have missed or we have problem with. She explains them to us clearly and gives many examples. She also divides the work for the final project, so that we can get feedback from her and our classmates. This way we aren't rushing anything in the end, and we know what we need to improve and work on. I enjoyed being in the class, but most importantly, I've learned so many things that I know will help me in my career.
I started to like the class as the course progresses. At first I didn't understand the contents well because the speed of the class was too fast.

Landry Fukunaga, was very informative and helpful throughout the semester I would definitely recommend this class.
This was a very informative and interesting class about assessment development. I thought the homework assignments and in-class work were very helpful and quite fun to do. I also liked how the professor set up and helped us with our term project -- creating a step-by-step process that we began midway in the semester so all the work wouldn't be piled up at the end of the semester. I really appreciated how prepared she was for this course. One thing that I struggled on though was the statistics portion of the course, such as finding standard deviation, sum of squares, z-scores and so on. I do not have a background in statistics, nor have I taken a course of statistics, so learning all the formulas and trying to work them in excel spreadsheet was really confusing and stressful. I thought the professor's lectures and in-class demonstrations of the formulas were good. But I kind of wish she hadn't gone too quickly over these. (Of course, I also understand that this was only a small portion of the class content.)
