Dr. Moyes is a very nice person. Lecture exams were tough because one word in the answer choice would make the answer incorrect. Her lectures were well organized and helpful and lab really helped your grade. You can tell she is enthusiastic about teaching-something a lot of research professors lack.

Kind lady and labs are pretty easy but exams are very difficult. It involves more memorization than knowledge- if you don't read carefully, your chances of getting the point is low. There are tons of kahoots and online homework.

Good

Prof. Moyes really knows her stuff. She always comes prepared and organized for class. I loved going to class because she made it interesting. What I didn't like only was her extremely difficult and detailed exams. However, there is online homework that helps cushion the grade overall.

Awful

Prof. Moyes' tests are unreasonably tricky. You really have to thoroughly understand the material and memorize everything word for word to get a good grade.

Professor Moyes is good at lectures and explaining the material. However, her tests are difficult and test your ability to "out-test" her rather than your knowledge. You have to know every detail of the information to test well and get an A. Lab is easy though. She would be a very good professor if her tests had been different.

I do not recommend taking Professor Moyes's class. Her tests are extremely specific.

It doesn't matter how well-versed you are on the subject, she makes minuscule changes meant to throw you off completely on exams. You are well poised to do worse than you should in this class, no matter how well you understand it. I've learned more about what it means to be tricked in this class than the actual subject printed.

Awesome

I've seen a lot of negative feedback, but I actually had a great time in her class and easily got an A. Yes, her response choices are confusing, but they help you comprehend the details. Exam 1 had a 10-point curve, and exam 2 had an 8-point curve, so she really tries to help the class. Take notes, read the textbook thoroughly, and study hard! Class is pretty doable.

This is by far the worst class I've ever had. Dr. Moyes' exams are totally ludicrous, and they don't even come close to measuring your comprehension of the topic. Her lectures aren't poor or difficult to grasp, but she will ask questions about unimportant things from them. Just go and save yourself the headache!

Poor

Doctor Moyes designs her tests to deliberately mislead students and does so in an A, B, C, A, and B or A, B & C format. The tests are doable, but the slides have to be basically memorized. Unfortunately, she only curves the first two exams. On the fourth exam, everyone got it wrong and she didn't curve because the people in the class ended up with As and Bs.
