Ratings for Bautista, D M
Based on 7 ratings for this instructor.
Comment: I genuinely enjoyed the material covered in Bautista's section of the course. She was a decent lecturer and effectively conveyed the information. However, I would have preferred that she put more information (ie words) in her powerpoint slides. She sometimes moves too quickly through the material for me to jot down everything important but when referring to her slides, there isn't much to work with either. I recommend using some recording device and filling out the missing details after class. Also, her exam grading guidelines were somewhat questionable. She allowed for limited space to write explanations for questions yet graded them quite harshly if the answers weren't super comprehensive. Nonetheless, the average score for her midterm was quite high - around 80%

Comment: She did well answering questions that were confusing, and did well presenting the material. But her exam! Be careful. Right down everything you know because they are harsh graders. I compared my exam with my friend's and we both had the exact same responses but both had different scorings. In short, liked her but hated her exam (easy questions, but you have to write down everything with limited space)

Comment: I think Professor Bautista gave a fair exam and the assignments/homework she gave helped out with the quizzes. I just didn't like the lecturing style. As my first upper div course, I was not expecting her to go over like 100 hundred slides in one hour!!! She goes over the material really fast, but from time to time she pauses to make sure that everyone understands her. Overall, she's not too bad, or too great. Just average.
