Sumati Gupta

Dec 2012

This is Gupta's first year teaching, and it is painfully obvious. Her lectures were pretty ordinary - there was nothing that could not have been learned by just reading the textbook. She often slipped up in her teaching or did not have answers for student questions. She did not seem confident at all in her teaching, although by the end of the semester she did seem a little more comfortable in this position. This class was nothing special and I don't recommend taking it if you are actually interested in abnormal psychology. Her grading was pretty annoying, there was no curve at all, so a few missed questions on each exam would leave you with a pretty bad grade for a super easy class. It seemed that this no curve situation was a result of a first-year teaching complex, because the grading was pretty ridiculous.
