Does not provide enough information on projects whatsoever and expects you to do perfect on everything. If your line isn't straight you get a D right from the start.

Mr. Marxen is a great professor. At first the grading seemed harsh, but the class is all about design and craft. He's so knowledgable and friendly! Be sure to follow the guidelines he gives you. A few quizzes, but if you read the chapters he assigns, then they are super easy.

Too harsh of a grader. You spends hours and put everything into his projects then he will give you a D all for maybe one small craft mistake. Never taking him again.

Ed might be one of the worst professors that I've ever had. His grading criteria is unclear, he grades extremely heavy on process work that should not count towards our final work. I don't recommend this class unless you are prepared to do a lot of work outside class. In class, he said my projects …more were good but made terrible comments when grading. less

Edward Marxen..... y'all better run if you decide to take a class with him. In person, he'll say one thing and make you believe your work is good, but when it came to the final's comments, he'll destroy all your confidence with negative comments. Don't use cubes in any of your work. He's extremely …more biased when it comes to designs and what he likes. less

I don't know why Marxen has such a low rating on here, but he is no means a bad professor, but he is your typical "hard"professor. You have to put in hours of work, but he clearly spells out what you need to do before all projects. Also, if you ask for his opinion on a project, make sure to take …more it. You'll be more likely to get a good grade. less

Ed is a nice guy. I will give him that. But when it comes to a Vis Lit Professor, avoid him at all costs. You basically have to cater your projects to his specific tastes in order to ever get a C in the class. If you are not a top tier designer, then forget about getting an A, A-, B+, or even a B.

I really liked him. Can be a tough grader, but just ask him for feedback and/or help. I enjoyed the class.

I loved ed, he does not deserve bad ratings. If you do the work, listen to what he says, and ASK for feedback/help he will give it to you. He was always clear about what he expected and tells you how to succeed. He is also funny and just enjoyable to be around. Take him!

Marxen's classes are awful, he builds you up and dishes out grade contrary to praise he gives throughout development. His grading scale seems arbitrary for many things and expects far more than most of his classes warrant in terms of time and effort.
