Comments:LA class - I took Dr.Moore for an easy one hour course. He is nice enough, but very disorganized. He does not explain things well and just talks a lot for no reason. He definitely loves teaching though...  - Grade In Class:A

Comments:Natural World - This guy is a terrible professor and unworthy of working at Baylor. As long as professors like him are still employed by the university, it will be a lower quality institution.  - Grade In Class:A

Comments:1305-1306 - I don't know why I took him for 2 semesters of Bio. He inspired me about "Crazy Biology" with knowledge quiz (which is lunatic, like what kind of eggs are you going to make for quick breakfast? Chicken, Goose, Duck, Turtle Eggs) Don't take him seriously if you do not want to hurt your GPA.  - Grade In Class:B+

Comments:bio 1306 - The worst possible teacher you can take. The University gave him a 2 year contract but his class reviews are so bad they revoked it after just one year. He cannot teach cause he doesnt even know the material. Bad decision by Baylor to hire him. Quigley is soooooo much better.  - Grade In Class:B

Comments:1306 - I took team taught, and luckily the other professor was amazing. Dr. Moore was frustratingly bad at teaching, testing, and even having a decent grasp on the material. He also refuses to compromise or help students (not admitting he's wrong, not telling you the correct answer so you find it yourself) to the point that it's impossible to learn with him. Definitely don't recommend him alone, but if you can take team taught with Dr. Quigley it's actually worth it for her lecturing.  - Grade In Class:A

Comments:1305 - Take any other professor than him. You are shooting yourself in the foot if you take him. He assigns minimal reading which isn't a good thing before you don't learn much. In class he does not teach, he simply has you talk with your group he assigns you in at the beginning of the year. Ask him a question and rather than answering he just responds with a different question. His tests are designed to trick you and don't allow you to demonstrate actual knowledge. I made consistent B's on his exams. Bio 2 I took a different professor and am making consisten A's. Don't take him.  - Grade In Class:B

Comments:BIO 2 - This guy is a joke. Multiple times during class I\'ve called him out for being wrong. He always fights me and then after class sends out an email explaining how he was wrong. His tests are a joke. You cant study for them because he doesn\'t test you on the material. His test questions are littered with incorrect grammar and misspellings.   - Grade In Class:B+

Comments:BIO 1305 - Save yourself the pain. This man designs questions that he thinks will help you 'grow as a student'. It doesn't. Moore tries whatever he can to trip his students up. He tries to teach complex topics that I'm convinced he doesn't have a good handle on. He tries his best but it just isn't helpful for this course.  - Grade In Class:A

Comments:1305 - Dr Moore is well meaning but cannot teach or write exam questions whatsoever. I managed to get an A solely through my ability to teach myself, regardless of how hard the material was. His SI, Gage, was literally our only teacher and the people who went to SI were the only ones who passed.  - Grade In Class:A

Comments:1305 - A very simple class. He assigns a couple subsections from the textbook for you to have read prior to class everyday, and during class doesn't teach any content, but has you do several activities and clicker questions that you can just screw around during, but should remember. Read the textbook and take decent notes, and take pictures of every clicker question as 80% of his exam questions are based on his clicker questions and examples he gives in class. This class was an easy A. He literally multiplies your grade by 103.3% at the end of the year by putting your grade out of 600 out of the 620 available points. He's just a very subjective and not very knowledgable person, so you have to learn what he wants instead of what could be objectively right.  - Grade In Class:A

Comments:Natural World 1 - Dr. Moore's tests are MUCH more complex and advanced than his lecture material. Almost everyone failed the test for his section. His grading for projects is incredibly unfair. He offers almost no guidance then grades your group ridiculously hard on the projects. Do not take him if you want a fair professor  - Grade In Class:C

Comments:BIO 1305 - If you are actually looking to learn something this semester that is relevant for the MCAT or to continue into Biology 2, DO NOT take this course. Dr. Moore is one of the worst His lectures do not correlate to the reading. If you ask him questions he will not directly answer them and will leave you confused and frustrated. The tests are EXTREMELY difficult because it is all application and super hard to study for. Unless you have great test taking skills, you will not be able to excel on the exams. The only grade booster are the weekly reflections that you are required to submit every Sunday night. My SI, Liam Cler, was a better biology teacher than the actual professor. DO NOT take this course, and if you have to, take team taught with Dr. Quigley so that your grade stands a chance.  - Grade In Class:A

Comments:BIO 1305 - for your own sake, DO NOT TAKE HIM!! All of my professors this semester were bad, but he was by far the worst, can't teach, refuses to answer questions. Readings out of the book were assigned and were extensive, yet the tests would often go beyond the readings, after each test I would go through the chapters and find sections with info on the test, yet those sections hadn't even been assigned. No online homework, just reflections for each week, class time is meaningless, just clicker questions, and the occasional poorly-drawn-whiteboard-diagram that nobody understand. Moral of the story, avoid him at all costs.  - Grade In Class:C+

Comments:BIO 1305 - I took the BIO 1305 course that Dr. Moore team-taught with Dr. Quigley. For the first half of the semester, Dr. Quigley lectured, and while it wasn't supremely interesting, she did genuinely care that we knew what we needed to know and taught us. However, for the second half, Dr. Moore took over. He never lectured. He instead gave us clicker questions, trying to get us to lead ourselves to the answer. I really, deeply understand the phrase "blind leading the blind" after taking this course. When we would ask questions, he wouldn't explain the actual answer, but would try to give us some sort of hint that rarely helped. I eventually realized that I was wasting three hours a week in the class, and began reading my textbook during class time. Dr. Moore was patient and helpful during office hours, so going to him one-on-one is a good way to start to understand how he views the material (which is crucial, because his tests are "application" and you have to figure out what he was trying to get at in each question) However, since he only has "by appointment" office hours, going to see him requires a lot of initiative, so few did. If you have to take Dr. Moore, try to take his team-taught.  - Grade In Class:A

Comments:1305 - I thought this professor would be good since talks about the research he does about learning. He does no lectures. All he does is clicker questions and group activities. You have to learn from the SI or learn the information yourself. The tests were hard. You could know everything and still get a C on the test. This is because the questions are application questions.  - Grade In Class:B

Date: 2017-12-14

Comments:1305 - The only reason I did somewhat well in this class was because of our SI was the person who actually taught the entire course. Dr. Moore does not teach at all. He told us at the beginning of the year that he would spend at least 15 minutes lecturing on Mondays and Wednesdays but he never did. In class all we did were clicker questions and work in our assigned groups to try and figure out the correct answer. The exams that we took were all application-based questions and were difficult because of the way he would word certain questions. He would allow us to argue for points back but it would often lead to nothing because he'd be like "well I used this phrase which means you should be thinking about this so C is the correct answer, not B." He also would leave to speak at another university, not tell us and have our SI, who is a sophomore, teach the class instead of canceling class. Asking him questions was frustrating because you would ask him something and then he would ask your question back to you and expect you to know the answer. I've got so many negative things to say about this man, but in short, avoid this professor if you can.  - Grade In Class:B

Comments:1305 - I hope none of you have to sit through a class with Dr. Moore. He does not teach any material. At all. In class we would have clicker questions but he would spend the entire class time on 2 or 3 questions and not explain any material. The exams were also worded to be trick questions and for questions that were just flat out wrong he would not give points back. Even the SI said the questions were wrong. Speaking of which, the SI pretty much taught the class. He is not approachable at all and will just say "what does the syllabus say". Dr. Moore is not interested in teaching you at all. You teach yourself and hope to God you understand everything without any clarification.  - Grade In Class:B
