  27. 27. Feedback “I really like the way the reviews are beingconducted. . . . I also like that instructors are giventhe review sheets first: it gives us very clearguidelines and allows us to see first in which areaswe can improve. On my one review, I used thereview sheet as a guideline to improve, but if I hadbeen in possession of the sheet much earlier, Iwould have done much better in that first class.”
