Notes:
1. A 5-point scale is used for the scores. The higher the score, the better the rating.
2. Fac. Member Avg Score: The mean of all the scores for each question for the faculty member.
3. Fac. Member Avg Score Std. Dev: A measure of the range of variability. It measures the extent to which a faculty member's Average Score differs from all the scores in the faculty member's evaluation. The smaller the standard deviation, the greater the robustness of the number given as average.

 What are the Instructor's strengths? (19 comments) 1. Able to capture the students' interests, even those not in the same faculty of study. Challenging coursework which definitely ensures that students have a strong grasp of basic programming methodology. 2. Engages students well, shows concern for struggling group, conducts entertaining recitation sessions 3. Engaging, able to rouse interest 4. He is a true master in the subject matter and hence is an inspiration to his students. He has also obviously put in a lot of effort into developing the Coursemology platform which is the main driver of learning in this module. 5. He is able to teach programming such that we are able to understand the topic more easily. He is able to break a challenging problem into simpler steps. 6. He is an extremely down to earth person. He can explain programming to the student with no prior background knowledge in programming. He is extremely mindful of the student's presence and can make his lessons extremely lively. He has taught me an important life lesson in managing complexities and I truely agree with it. I can think more linearly now and I have seen my problem solving skills greatly enhance my maturity. 7. He is very good at explaining the concepts and engaging the class! 8. He knows how to engage the students in a fun way, making his lectures interesting. Nevertheless, the lecture videos still managed to deliver content effective. 9. He makes his lectures interesting to listen, both online and live. Gamification of online component(coursemology) encourages me to do better for my online submissions. His enthusiasm for programming is contagious. 10. Humourous and makes class fun. Knowledgeable and experienced in programming 11. Humourous, Motivating 12. Prof Ben is a caring and responsible educator who always want the best for his students. He tries his best to make the class entertaining so that the students can learn better. 13. Prof Ben is able to effectively and efficiently teach us the concepts of the module while we unknowningly start to understand the contents more and more. 14. Prof Ben is cool. Prof Ben is awesome. Prof Ben has a wealth of experience in teaching n00bs like us :D The class is extremely well paced. 15. Prof Ben's greatest strength as an educator is his very visible and infectious enthusiasm for CS. He is able to share his knowledge in CS and thought processes for solving problems very effectively. Prof Ben also possesses an energetic and charismatic personality which enables him to build rapport with the class for a better learning experience. He is also extremely generous with advice outside of teaching the module, from offering personal perspectives on life to advising the students on how to make the most out of their university experience. 16. Prof is a very dedicated teacher who tries his best in cultivating good habits in his students. He makes learning difficult concepts fun and interesting and he always emphasized on the rational behind each concepts. 17. Prof. Leong's lecture notes are thorough yet very easy to understand even for one who previously had very little knowledge in programming. On top of that, he not only created online exercises that allow us to learn through as we do, he also runs through face-to-face recitations in an engaging manner, giving surprisingly simple solutions to complicated problems, lets us try variants of the given problems, and even throws in some 'fun' here and there. He also helps clarify our issues and difficulties with the course. 18. engaging. Has a high understanding of the subject. Good at understanding how students comprehend each problem. 19. teaches us in a fun and exciting manner Overall a very, very good professor

 What improvements would you suggest to the Instructor? (16 comments) 1. - 2. Continue to persevere with his methods. 3. Focus more on making the students understand the topics. 4. Grading for Practical Exam has many double/triple penalizations, and penalization(which was reduced, but still exists) for not factoring bad input data type into consideration. Median was 14.5/30.0, perhaps grading stringency should be reviewed slightly. However, reduction of penalizations might also lead to students who do not fully grasp concept, so I guess a balance has to be struck. 5. He could teach at a slightly slower pace to accommodate the weaker students. 6. I struggled to pick up C from just listening to the lectures and doing the missions. Maybe more step-by-step instructions like when starting Python would be better. 7. I think he is very realistic. This can be a bit of stress to the poor students, who can tend to view his comments as being negative. Sometimes, he can be a bit too fast and this means we will have to keep up with his pace to follow his lesson fully. 8. Keep it up! 9. Maybe slow down a little on important concepts, because students who are relatively weaker as compared to others will need more time to digest the information about certain important concepts highlighted in class 10. NA 11. NA 12. None, I am very satisfied to be his student. 13. None. 14. Prof Ben can try to slow down his pace of teaching so that students will be able to grasp the concepts better. 15. Teach more modules :) 16. Watch Avengers: Age of Ultron Stay awesome.
