    I AM getting my grades back and they are taking points off for ridiculous things. I spent 25 hours on last week's assignment and my assessment was 28 pages long. I followed EVERY rule and handed in everything they asked for. My TA said my narrative was incorrect and I used the EXACT example on the sample they gave us. I cannot figure out what they want. I just graduated and I have taken my assignments to my college profs to look at and they are stunned by how disorganized it is. But I get dinged for it. I am SOOOOOOO frustrated

    I don't have grades for week three either. I keep checking but nothing so far.
    No grades yet either. How are we supposed to learn from our mistakes if we don't get them back in time to help us with the next assignment? I know it's a lot for them to grade in a short time, but we have a lot to do in a week too. Same old double standard!

    My suggestion for the narrative summary...you do NOT do it like the sample. They never really gave us a narrative summary "per se" they want you to take what was in the sample and summarize it according to your patient in paragraph form at the end of the subjective assessment and the objective (which is the actual physical assessment.) Take what you gleaned from all of that and summarize at the end with no labels except: NARRATIVE SUMMARY. Have at least 3 paragraphs. I usually start mine something like this:

    Client is a 34 year old female who is a coal miner with c/o sore throat. She states blah blah blah. She has never been hospitalized, had surgeries or blah blah blah. etc. etc.

    OMG......Week 4 assignment is way beyond flippin crazy!!!! My TA say to put in the diagrams. One assessment is 24 pages long WTH. I guess I will copy pictures from book and paste the damn things into the form (literally). Hand writting everything since I have to print it out! What total BS. Do you all know of any Doc or NP that does assessments like these? If they did, they would take to long and get fired!

    Mine says due to blackboard being down, I am finishing up grades. Still no grade , past midnight here.
    Imagine if I submitted my assignment 2 days late with a note.. due to blackboard being down I couldn't get my assignment done on time. /Think that would fly? NOT.

    And by the way, how the heck are we supposed to fit in a diagram and submit it electronically? Can't do it unless you have a scanner.

    I posted a question about it on the Qand A board, and surprise surprise, no answer.

    I just noticed that on the Thoracic Exam form, the posterior thorax exam is on the form twice. I deleted it. Brings it down to 7 pages long.

    SO... I have 2 separate form popped up on Microsoft Word. I'm annoyed. They both have blanks at the beginning for info to be filled in and then a completed example in the next half. I don't know of i'm using both or if I'm using one. I'm currently sitting at my kitchen table drinking coffee, in a complete daze.

    I've had to email her 3 times about my grades and she's had to change 3 assignment grades because she's missed things on my stuff.

    I plan to BS my way though it like have everything else.
