Comment:
Finally finished this god forsaken class, and honestly couldn't believe my eyes when I saw my final grade. Take this class with anyone but this prof. Class averages always suck on exams. Her lectures don't teach anything. You can make up the grades in quizzes, but you need 100%, or you get nothing. You'd be surprised how much time it takes.

Absolute garbage prof. Text book is littered with errors, along with her "key terms". Questions do not relay what is taught in the text book, and exams also have spelling errors. Wouldn't catch me dead taking this prof again. class average was a 65 for our exam, and that says a lot about this prof. Talks in circles, and cant teach to save her life

Not the best prof, but definitely not the worst! She is very willing to answer questions, stay after class, and does many review videos and sessions. Lectures don't really match up with the questions and exams but her review videos do. If you put the effort in, you will pass.

Awful teacher. Donna should quit teaching as she is not prepare to provide any teaching information to her students. She does not explain the information for this course and expects students to teach themselves. So we are paying to teach ourselves.

Worst prof in the world. Never answers emails, doesnt care for her students, a test is either 100 or 0. She posts key terms with no definitions and doesnt post lecture videos. U are entirely on your own. She wouldnt even set up a zoom call when I tried asking for help. I passed by 0.1% Do not take a class with her.

Donna is not a perfect prof but I do think she deserves better than the 2/5 average. She is really caring and will even stay after class to help you better understand the topic. One small complaint I have is that more often than not she will send out literally 10 (useless) emails per day.

I heard many bad things about donna before having her but shes really not that bad. I took ECON1012 with her one semester, she gets the material across good and uses real life examples. Midterms just study the material she tells you too, same for the final exam. Quizzes are a grade booster, do them. I took ECON1010 online with her & had no final.

Hands down the worst professor I've dealt with at the U of L. She was quick to respond to my emails but her replies were, without fail, passive-aggressive and condescending rather than actually helpful. The Moodle exams were frustrating; she kept changing instructions and time limits during the testing window. Find another class, it's not worth it.

Donna is a awesome prof. She really takes the time to go over examples that relate to the real world. She also cares. She cares tremendously about here students. Donna helped me get my university career back on track. I went from academic probation to being a solid A student. Thank you Donna!

Donna really cares about her students. She is easy to access outside of class and will help if needed. That being said, she is constantly late for class, and her lectures are not relevant to what you are actually tested on. Moodle quizzes worth 20% will save your mark. Class averages on exams are really low. Prepare to teach yourself out of book.

Comment:
Most sporadic professor I've ever encountered. I understand why she's the lowest-rated professor in Uleth. However, most of the reviews are hilarious. I took ECON 1010 with her MWF @0950hrs, missed a few classes and whatnot but still managed to get an A+. The secret? Do the work using the resources provided- unnecessary whining from absentees smh.

- Wastes most of class on unnecessary things - Squeezes all important info into the last 5 minutes - Doesn't always provide correct answers on midterms - 24% of your grade will be based on Moodle quizzes online. 100% is required to get the grade but the quizzes often don't have the correct answers - Success is hard to find with Donna Stay away

Good lord avoid this woman at all costs. Every lecture will be about 5 minutes of actual teaching, 40 minutes of her telling you what you can buy at Best Buy, and the last 5 minutes rushing though the 5 graphs you were supposed to learn today. I have basically taught myself this entire course.

Donna is a fun, interesting individual outside of the classroom. However, there's a catch. She is not a reliable professor, and is difficult to get a hold of. Unfortunately I wound up teaching myself most of the material, bevause class time was wasted with heated conversations. Nothing on tests is really taught in class, its all textbook.

Donna is a good person, however she is not the best professor. All of her material either comes from her head or the textbook, and if you don't come to class you will miss the extra info that is on the test. She is often late for the 50 min class and then crams 10 min of info into the last minute. However, it's do-able if you need to take it.

Donna definitely cares for her students and wants them to succeed. That being said, the material is very challenging and confusing at times ,and Donna goes through it REALLY fast. Exams are very challenging with low class averages. Moodle quizzes are worth 24% of grade which is a necessary boost. Study hard or you could be in for a shock!

Final exam marks were never posted, with her boost of grades unexplained. Makes herself available outside of class and gives good one on one feedback, but constantly late to class. In lecture, barely covers course content, till the last week where she covers a multiple chapters per 50min class. Difficult exams, but solid review of them afterwards.

DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS WITH DONNA. Goes through lectures light speed fast and doesn't explain what she is doing. Also doesn't wear shoes lots of the time... expects you to just know and assume what she is talking about. Doesn't take criticism well when someone tries to correct her.
