Comment: no exams. just weekly quizzes that are horrendously easy if you just do the reading once.
she has a very smart way of making sure her students fulfill the "page requirement" in R1B. She assigns annotated bibliographies every other week or so and the analysis of your research counts towards the page requirement. She is graduating, unfortunately, but the material was fun and interesting... she was SO GOOD at providing feedback. She would often give you a page of notes the next day, most teachers would never do that, the TDPS department is great.
