The only thing interesting about Kristan is her horrendous outfits. Other than that, she has very unclear expectations and expects students to know exactly what she is looking for in papers, etc. She is EXTREMELY opinionated and it's pretty much her way or the highway. She loves to prove people …more wrong. I didn't get too much out of this class. less

Great teacher, very passionate about what she does. She is very helpful, you just have to ask for it. Her class is extremely hard and a lot of work, but it is rewarding.

She gave me a C on every paper I ever wrote. All the other professors I've had consistently gave me A's. I'd spend days on the papers, email them to her for feedback, edit, etc. Always a C. I finally got frustrated and started spending 20 minutes tops on them. I got slightly higher Cs. Go figure.

without a doubt the most difficult teacher Ive ever had. I tried so hard and barley pulled out a C. A LOT of reading. Hard grader. Be prepared for a lot of work. All interesting, just stressful.

She is a very challenging professor, but well worth it. The class I have had with her is one of my favorites I have had at AppState. She is friendly, and encourages students to drop by and say hi when she is in her office. Take her if you are willing to work hard to learn.

Very tough teacher until I went to her and asked for help. As soon as I did that I brought my grade up from a D to a B. She will work with you if you just go talk to her. If you don't the class will be extremely challenging. A lot of reading. Go to class and participate, it's a big part of your …more grade less

Easily most interesting class I took this semester. Kristan is a great prof who knows what she is talking about. Very passionate, but a hard grader. She likes detail and connections to topics talked about in class. Readings are hard and there is a quiz before every class. You will pass as long as …more you participate in discussion with valid insight. less

Grades over the top on very small details. I make A's most of the time but my guess is that I'll make a C in this class. Nit picky when teaching as well. I think she means well but her style is definitely not for me, and probably not for anyone else unconcerned with minutia

2 exams, quizzes before every class, 2 short essays, a group project and one giant final project. She allows 3 attempts on quizzes and then you can go back and look at the answers during the tests. The tests are online. The short essays are easy and she gives you the prompts in advance. She grades …more very tough on both projects. Okay class, not great less

Lots of group projects which I normally the but in this class they were fun and necessary. This is a tough class, but she is a vary good instructor and if you want to learn, I highly recommend Dr. Kristan Cockerill. I don't recommend her if you're one of the people that like to get by with a "c". …more She does expect full cooperation. less
