All of the student evaluations below come from courses that I taught as an adjunct or visiting assistant professor of American and African American history at Utica College.   

Utica College administers electronic standardized student evaluations—the Student Opinionnaire on Teaching (SOOT)—at the end of each semester.  Under each class, I have included the evaluation questions, categories, and tables summarizing student responses.
