Comment:
Dr. Kleer is a phenomenal professor and formatted the class in such a way that it allows the students to control the amount of work that they want to put into the class. Because of Dr. Kleer, this class quickly became my favorite course in university and I wish I would've been able to take more courses with him before he retired.

Comment:
This is the weirdest class I've ever taken format wise but I ended up liking it. You do a 10min quiz or test every class, so get ready to read a lot. This class requires a lot of work but Richard gives lots of opportunities to get a high mark. I ended up finishing with 100%. He is very kind, passionate about the topic and I think a great prof.

Honestly my favorite class of the semester. It was centered around group discussions which made everyone in the 80 person class know each other. Definitely had to read the textbook, but the work had a quick payoff.

Comment:
Professor has a rubric with five categories and each is itself out of 5 marks. The ending total for the assignment is out of five. The professor then said that unless you get at least a four in every category you won't even get a mark, you automatically get a zero.

His class is heavy on participation (25%). There is no final exam and there are no midterms either. But, be prepared to read lots as there is an online quiz/test every class based on the textbook and class discussions. Do not buy the textbook as it can be found online. Attendance is mandatory as the entire class will evaluate you.

Comment:
No final or midterm, just a small quiz or test every day. Openminded and discusses both sides of the question/argument. Don't have to buy the textbook, it should be free online. Lots of group discussion, easy to talk to and only one short presentation. I fully recommend it. If you just read the book you are bound to pass with at least a 65% or 70%.

Comment:
He is a very difficult grader and does't hand out high marks. Participation is a large portion of your grade but it's based on what the class gives you not what he thinks. He had no final or midterms but you end up doing more work because he has a quiz or test every class. I wouldn't recommend him or take one of his classes again.

This was a challenging class, but if you put in the effort you will learn a lot. It was highly participatory, which I liked. You will have to show up to class to get a good grade.

He does not hand out high marks, the questions on the quizes should be answered directly. and that's fine but imo, i would have enjoyed it a lot more if he would have been forthcoming about his expectations. ask him at the beginning of class what he wants to see in your answers but great class, good info and i learned a lot.

Comment:
Kleer's ECON 380 class isn't as hard as it used to be. It's broken up into several small assignments now. I think Dr. Kleer gets a bad rep because he's very critical of your work. Some people don't take constructive criticism well but I think his is extremely useful if you want to improve your writing. My only concern is that he gives low marks.

Comment:
Dr. Kleer is an extremely talented, intelligent and concerned professor, although he is very difficult to interpret at times. I hesitate to recommend him because I found his class to be too time consuming and emotionally frustrating. If you find pleasure in receiving 100% on one assignment and 30% on the next, then this is the class for you.

He expects his students to do work...might be a shock to some! If you do the work, he will help you and he does want you to learn. You have to go to class and you have to try. Very intelligent and his smile is really cool.

This class is a nightmare. You should consider switching your major out of Economics, rather than take this class from this particular professor. I don't have one good thing to say about this class, period.

Should have dropped the class after overhearing other students BEFORE the first class began! Be prepared to spend more time on this one class than all others, for a mark that does not reflect your abilities.

Comment:
Greatest Econ Proff. Very Nice. No Text! No Final! A weekly quiz done on articles he provides. Articles can be lengthy and poorly written. Expect to read and study 4 hrs before class. Participate & read the articles - an easy A. Very intersting class too.
