    I'm submitting my assignments. I feel like crap and I don't even care right now. I still have to do my math exam and all I feel like doing right now is puking again. UGH! Hoping for a better day tomorrow. Good luck all.
    May it be a 24 hr bug....... sorry you are feeling bad.

    Was there a form we are suppose to use for this assignment like the one we had last week? I don't see one.

    Thanks for the clarification. I know someone asked on the board for my group, and the question was completely ignored, although she answered others. So stupid. I had decided to just skip the extras as well. They don't fit in their, so I'm not doing them. Never mind the rubric doesn't even include half the stuff.

    No form. This is just a free for all. This assignment is way to vague. If I just do a narrative it certainly isn't going to be a 2-3 paragraph one. The narrative (from what I THINK is just suppose to be ABNORMAL findings, in the SOAPIER format.
    CONFUSING.

    So on the FB page, people are talking about needing the eye chart, and otoscope and all that. I sure as heck don't have the money to buy that stuff. I hope they don't expect us to. I don't have access to them either. What do you guys think?

    Did anyone notice that under assignments, the assignments are worth 25 points, 10 points and 12 points, but all say 5% of your final grade?
    I don't know exactly who is to blame, but between the lousy instructions, the TA's not communicating proper explanations, and all the typos and such - this is the most unorganized, unprofessional, confusing class I have ever taken!

    [FONT="Trebuchet MS"]I agree. This course is the worst (I usually try not to complain). Theinstructions for "PURPOSE, GOALS, and LEARNING OBJECTIVES" is notmeaningful at all. What do we suppose to write? How much should we write? .....So frustrated! Any comments and suggestions are truly appreciated.

    Good bad or ugly I submitted my assessment. I kept it simple to skin, hair, nails, overall lymphatics and peripheral vascular. It was 6 pages long with title page and references. Nothing fancy. My narrative summary was just that...a summary of my client.

    I only utilized chapters 13 and 20 with just a mention of breasts from 17 because the client mentioned something about right breast. fI client did not mention an issue I did not include it in my assessment write up...so eyes, ears, nose throat, chest heart blah, blah were not covered in my assessment.

    I will see how off base or not when it gets graded. NO we are NOT expected to have that equipment and to utilize it. The example submitted to us does not include any eye exams etc.

    Oh NO, another glitch. When I went to MY Grades to be sure I had done everything, there was no consent. I went to the submission page and it was there. But when I scanned it, the computer saved it as a bitmap (whatever the heck that is), so I guess the OU software in blackboard does not recognize it. I can't resubmit it. The TA announcement says if no consent you get a zero for the assignment.
    I emailed the TA and sent it as an attachment, keeping fingers crossed that she will open it and accept it.

    If I get a zero after all those hours of work on the assignment because the computer would not save a scanned document any other format, I will scream.......... or more......

    Has anyone else had this happen. I'm really nervous now.

    Crisis averted! TA says that class 2 consents are showing up under class 5 for some reason. What a relief..........that had me really nervous.

    I hate to say this, but for me, this is the best class I've had since Fall Semester started lol. Yeah, it's not perfect, but after dealing with the mass confusion, the almost illiterate instructions on assignments, disorganization and wretched TAs of Research and Leadership earlier, this class has been somewhat of a relief for me.
