    Since there were 2 forms for subjective and assessment, how did you turn them in? Did you copy and paste so there was one long form?
    I picked out the things that were not repeated and added them in. It was a pain in the rear to deal with all the stupid underlines in the REVISED assessment. Had to get rid of all of those.
    I ended up with 14 pages total...which was good enough for me.

    I have a gut feeling that grading these is beyond the scope of my TA. Her last comment was "Met all requirements" that was it. Got full credit.

    I think it is important to have a really good narrative summary.

    I have been reading different threads on here and Facebook about our program and this class. I really feel for those of you struggling with young families, long work hours and these assignments that are not clearly defined and serve as a great source of anxiety for many of us.

    I hope that someone who has a say, whether it be a TA, teacher, administration will finally get the word that these courses have got to improve immediately.

    We may want to consider calling the student help number that was supplied in Fall 2012 session 2. It should be in your email from OU.
    I am going to call tomorrow.

    Well said. Things have got to get better. I spent about 6-8 hours on this assignment all together. It was way longer than it needed to be because of the formatting of the forms. Those underline were in the way, If you don't delete them it looks like everything is underlined, and they want underlined only the problems.

    I feel like we are all going to school to be Doctors...these assessments are so ridiculous! so tired of not understanding what to do and repeating myself in our assignments! I started working on week 4 tonight at work since its slow! looks ridiculous yet again! However they are being generous and only giving us 2 assignments this week!!

    We get to read about genetic disorders however I cant find the required readings for that assignment yet!! Argghh! Why cant they just put the required readings in the course materials instead of this cat and mouse game!

    I had planned on calling since as of 2am Saturday night/Sunday am the only grade I had was the assessment. Still missing the others. The one I got was sometime on Saturday.

    I truely get what you are saying. I have never had this kind of a physical exam by a nurse, or a NP either.
    I see an ENT and I have never had this kind of assessment done to me before. This is ridiculous!

    Hi All,
    I am in such a mess right now. I work full time and have my Alzheimer's Mom living with me so Sundays are my only days to do my homework. So, here I am trying to figure out how the heck to get an opthalmascope and Snellen Chart in my house to test my Mom's (my client this week) visual acuity...
    Any suggestions would be so very much appreciated.
    Thanks

    If you have an ipad or iphone there is a Snellen app. The TA in my section said if you did not have the equipment just state that you did not have equipment. Hope that helps!

    You can print one out or just write "Unable to Assess due to lack of equipment." Then tell what the normal is. That's what we were told to do by our TA. I'm in section 063.

    I made it easier on myself and used my 3 month old for this week. No way to do the eye chart, lol. I'm just putting parents state for the eye part per last pediatrician checkup for the ears.

    What are we suppose to do with the sample narrative which is several pages long if we are suppose to have 2-3 paragraphs?
