Long story as short as I can get it...
Last night I took the 1st online quiz for my PT Science 1 class. 40 questions, 60 minutes to get it done. I used my notes and my book and still got a C. I don't like C's. The lowest grade I will tolerate is an 83, but whatever. After I got my results I was very discouraged. I kept trying to talk myself out of the feeling but it didn't work. I talked to Snookums and complained a bit more and tried pepping myself up a bit more to no real improvement. I went to bed with the plan to talk to someone (advisor, teacher, counselor)about my thoughts because I was having 2nd thoughts about me being able to successfully complete the program. For me to have those type thoughts so early on I wanted to talk to someone.
Today I came to school early so I could get some serious study time in away from home. One of my classmates was already knee deep in books when I walked in. I asked her if she took the online quiz and her face dropped. She said a bunch of classmates where studying in the library before they took the test last night and nobody got a great grade. Then she mentioned how on Tuesday a classmate was kinda hanging out in one of the labs and the professor of the course came in the room and sighed. My classmate asked her if everything was okay and my professor told her that she didn't pass her own quiz!!! What she did was took some questions from the multiple choice tests the book authors provided and mixed in some of her own questions. If she couldn't pass her quiz how in the world does she expect us to and most of us have no clue what we are doing!!! UGH! The quiz isn't weighted heavy but we are going to try to get her to trash that quiz. Insanity!
WTH, I mean WTH!!!!!
Update: My professor has dropped 10 of the questions and recalculated our grades. My quiz grade now is an 88. I can live with that! :-)
