    I just posted my response to this week's case study and was shocked by the format. It's set up like a quiz and timed! What's the reason for that? My bet is that at one time, it was a quiz and just has never been changed in EPIC. The real question is why the format couldn't have been made clear to us before we attempted to post our answers. I can't be the only one who was prepared to cut and paste a single document, with references at the end of the last page (in my case, 3 pages of response with nearly a full page of references - 7 in total). I actually had to scramble to match things up to the individual questions; more work in an already labor-intense class.

    There have been some tough courses in this curriculum - in terms of vague, unclear assignments, not intellectual content - but I think this one takes the cake. The professor for this course ought to be ashamed of what it's become.
    Chuckster I didn't have a clock running. The time was at the bottom but not moving...... At least I didn't notice anyway. I put the references after each answer because I knew this was gonna be a weird format. I think this professor sends out more emails than anybody!

    I went to the case study section early on to see if it was a template or what. When the question popped up about being "sure you want to start?" I realized it was going to be different. I cut an pasted as I went...no references because that's what the professor said...we'll see. As of right now I imagine everyone will get vastly different grades based on their TA (as usual) and the confusion will be cleared by the end of week 5. How's that for optimism?! Yes, this is THE most disorganized mess at OU thus far.

    As for not admitting to your NP program in spite of my stellar record and excellent references, all I can say is THANK YOU! I imagine your online grad school to be equally a navigational nightmare. I'll go elsewhere, thank you very much. Sometimes "NO" means "Yes!"

    Is everyone doing about a paragraph each for the responses? It is sad that we all need to come here for clarification on assignements. Each time I take a class I think this is the worst one so far, then the next one comes along and it is a little worse. A class should not be so complicated. I posted a question on the Q and A board and got an answer back that was clear as mud

    Yes that's pretty much what I did. I just made sure to mention what they ask for. You have no idea what they want until you get graded. It sucks! And anyone out there who is a parent can pretty much just skim chapters 12 and 13....

    Me too! When I saw the "are you sure you want to submit button, I panicked and scooted out and then reformatted all my stuff so that I did each question on a single document. Whew. Then the clock starts ticking that shows how many hours till 11:59 or so till you have to turn it in, but the problem is epic closes you out if there is like a few minutes of inactivity so I was frantically trying to get it all in! whew! I feel like I just ran a race or something!

    but it is done, ack ack ack. (sounds of distress and relief).
