Comment:
Dr. Krider has to be one of the best professors that I have had here at CMU. I have never met a more caring and kind professor. Although I hate putting my camera on during class, I do for her as she truly brightens my day. Any question you have she is available to help, and she would do anything for her students.

Comment:
Dr. Krider is an all-or-nothing grader and has virtually no flexibility. She also doesn't do well describing grading criteria and she is one of the most critical profs I've ever had. She's a decent person to talk to, but she does not teach well.

Comment:
She is hated throughout the entire COM/IPR students body. She is rude and is a horrible teacher. The sad thing is the content is interesting but she ruins it. Many students have complained about her yet nothing has been done. Seems like she is a first year prof but has been in the department for years...

Comment:
She is the worst professor I have ever had at Central. She reads off the slides everday during class then gives you very detailed projects she never teaches you how to do. She is a very hard grader. Almost everyone in my class got less than 50% on the first project. You can NEVER reach her outside of class if you have a question.

Comment:
This is the final class of the COM major and it was the most difficult class yet. Not because the content was confusing but because Krider's unclear expectations and poor communication. My final grade ended up being good, but assignments that I was acing in other classes within the major, she was giving me C's on in this course.

Comment:
Dr. Krider is a good teacher for this course. The assignments are not too difficult as long as you remember to keep looking back at the syllabus and schedule throughout the semester. She will not always respond to your emails which can be irritating. Overall, this is a solid introductory class with Dr. Krider.

Even though I got a good grade, would not recommend her. She is very vague with her directions that it seems open for interpretation and then grades hard. Many students received poor grades from assignments and when confronted, she got super defensive and unreasonable. Very strict with grading papers. No exams, just papers. Rarely emails back.

Honestly one of the worst classes I've taken. She's vague with assignments and then grades you down significantly because you didnt follow directions. Class is boring and she never responds to emails.

Comment:
Absolutely awful. You will never get an email back from her. She is rude and makes awful comments. Gives little to no instruction on assignments, then grades like she gave you specifics. Constantly telling personal stories instead of teaching. Her job at CMU should definitely be reconsidered. DO NOT take a class with her if you don't have too.

Comment:
It's amazing how someone so blatantly rude and disrespectful can hold such a high position at CMU. Krider completely disregards students' questions, refuses to meet during 'office hours', is intentionally vague about assignments, and hands out poor grades without any feedback. Thank you Krider for reminding us how broken the US school system is!

Comment:
Be prepared to really dig to find out what she expects on assignments as she doesnt provide clear grading criteria. If you question her expectations, be prepared to be belittled in front of the class. Her disorganization doesnt allow for her to effectively run a classroom, and she often makes inappropriate remarks regarding mental health/gender.

Had zero control over the class, class would get derailed almost every day. Would make inappropriate comments involving disabled and autistic people. Gave vague assignment info at the last minute for a final presentation, when me and my group tried to talk to her about it she threatened to lower our grade and tried to get us to turn on each other.

she didn't start our 9:30 class til 10:00 and told us her personal stories. she told me on the first day she would always answer emails, but she won't get back to you. She told me on the last day that she won't answer any emails during exam week or the week prior. Overall, she doesn't care about you or to help you out.

I swear this professor just refuses to give an A. No matter how perfectly you follow her directions its never quite good enough- i don't think anyone in our class ever received an A on anything. Her directions are never clear and shes wishy-washy about everything and changes what she wants from you all the time but then grades SO hard. dont do it

She is probably the worst professor I have had in college. She is extremely unorganized and grades hard without having clear guidelines/rubrics. She also says rude remarks to students. If you can take this class with someone else, please do it. I would never wish her on anyone.

Krider is okay. She just rambles on and on about random things and doesn't necessarily get the point of the content across. You're better off just reading the chapters from the textbooks because class time is pointless, but miss three classes and your grade drops. She is also not clear about assignments. Take with someone else, if you can.

Krider is not specific from what she wants on projects. Miss three classes, your grade drops a whole letter grade. Responds late or not at all to emails. She makes very rude and incorrect comments on touchy topics then she'll joke about it. She spends the entire class just reading powerpoints and rambling.

Very unclear teaching style. Responds to emails DAYS later. Not very willing to help students. No extra credit was given, and if "extra points" were given, they didn't help the grade at all because they were 5/5 not 5/0. Lectures don't match the study guide. GIVES STUDY GUIDE TWO DAYS BEFORE THE TEST?! Worst professor I've had in a while.

Krider is the toughest grader Ive ever had which is confusing since her teaching isnt throurough what so ever. Her class is extremely unorganized. This 200 level class was 50x harder than my 500 level capstones... Im a graduating senior and havent experienced anything worse than this class. I didnt learn a single thing on top of it.
