    (Numbers on responses correspond to student column on Likert scale data table. NA = No Answer.)

    1. Nothing
    2. Not sure
    3. I will like the ??? to be more focus on the course content rather than trying to make the class funny (to some group of people) he should also involve entire class to ensure total participation. The course content should be well broken down with clear expectations.
    4. NA
    5. The assignments need more detail. Clearer expectations.
    6. Could be less "abstract"
    7. I would like to see better use of the textbook. It would help if we know what sections are relevant to future discussions so we know what to read in advance. Better explanations for the assignments would also be appreciated
    8. More guidance for assignments
    9. Less assignments that feel like make-work projects. The Design Journal is a neat idea but would be better implemented if the entries were cut in half but we were required to pick a topic from the past few weeks and delve much more in depth. Longer entries but fewer of them. It currently feels too much like I am rewriting my notes and it is hard to go further into detail on topics.
    10. Less homework
    11. Nothing
    12. The material seems kind of all over the place. Hard to form one cohesive idea of the lessons
    13. NA
    14. Sometimes assignment specifications are vague
    15. I would say a little bit more explanation and elaboration and clear concepts regarding the teaching material for this course
    16. NA
    17. I think class timings :) (Nothing as such, very well planned lectures and interesting stuff)
    18. Not a fan of piazza and the other applications other than URcourses. I find its hard to keep track of what's going on there, plus URcourses, plus the prof's website. Especially with other classes being on URcourses.
    19. The mode of discussion. The prof has to be more audible
    20. Links to assignments, project, exam, etc. on URcourses; shuffling between homepage, URcourses, piazza, and gradescope slows things down
    21. Uniformity in submitting course related records
    22. A stricter routine and speedier progression during class. Smaller class or separating into groups to discuss better design or thoughts on videos
    23. For those who are having first experience needs more example to define
    24. There are too much assignments in this course
    25. If we learn some rules to evaluate think it should be better for us
    26. I don't want to change anything. I want to learn more rules about about UI design.
    27. More example will be needed
    28. NA
    29. Probably would like some lab classes
    30. Nothing. Everything is good
