    Later in the week after Prof. reviews. I imagine they throw out some questions, etc. You'd think with a hx of having to curve grades someone would rewrite the test. Seems it would be much more efficient. But what do I know...
    Didn't you read her note - she is sooooo please there were so many perfect scores on the midterm. May be no curve at all.

    Well apparently there were a number of "perfect scores" on the midterm. Congrats to the brains out there...I hope this doesn't affect the prospects for a curve.

    Assuming that those who got perfect scores were a small minority, they won't necessarily affect the curve, if the basis is the normal statistical bell curve. This would mean that the curve would be based on the majority of test takers scores. If they're within the bell (I think 3 std deviations of expected outcome) there won't be a curve. If its outside of this, they would add a curve to bring most of the scores back to where they predicted they should be. You have to hope that that there were a lot of poor grades if you want a substantial curve.

    Frankly, I'm relieved to have scored so poorly. My score was roughly what you would expect from random guessing, so that tells me not to bother studying, or even doing the readings, for the final.

    I doubt that are going to curve the midterm. I have left a message in Epic to anyone and everyone who made a perfect scrore to please email me of what and how to study since I studied everything that I was told to study. Either I am dumb as can be or they know something that I don't and I want to know because their is no way you could have made a perfect score without knowing something. If you look at the hisory of this class, every test has been curved. Hmmmm. Sounds a little fishy to me. And you can bet I will not make any effort to read the chapters again. That is a complete waste of time.What a joke. Yes, I will be leaving a comment on the class and yes I will complain to who ever about this test. It was rediculous not to mention all the different directions we obtained while trying to get through the case studies and disccusion board at the beginning of the class.

    I am so confused, embarrassed, sad, i cant even explain my emotions. I did very very poorly on the exam and to think she said there were perfect scores. The test was full of statistics and minute comments from the chapters; how could someone possibly remember every detail.Well, if there is no curve and the final is the same then i will be in big trouble. I would really like to hear from a student who had a perfect score.

    Nobody should be embarrassed. It is IMPOSSIBLE to remember such details in 12 chapters (or whatever!) The study guide was vague but my exam hit on every topic she mentioned. I will be sure to gather more detail from the guide next time. Chins up....this class was a B***H.

    Couldn't agree more, michelemybell...I didn't do too hot on the test either. So hang in there and study the points from the all inclusive study guide. Then get ready to celebrate when this SOB is over!!!

    How in the world were there perfect scores?? There was also a note about cheating posted along with this announcement. Makes me wonder if people were copying and pasting questions/answers and giving them to other students?

    It's pretty sad to me that I have a 100% in the class and got a 64% on the midterm. The test was just unfair.

    I agree makes me wonder as well. I went into epic and under the Question and Answer section and asked who ever made a perfect score to please email me with their study material because I need help. I have yet to get a response from anyone. I placed it under Module three and four. I will keep yall updated on any response.

    Lurking a bit today to see what everyone thinks of this class. UGH!! Looks like I made a good choice in not taking it this quarter. I'm holding off until spring where it will be 1 of my last 2 classes. I'm hoping that by that time they will have changed things around a bit, but I'm not holding my breath. Sorry this has been a nightmare, that really sucks!

    next week only 3 questions for the case study!! They are practically the same questions as this week's ...but they added in the word "health goal". I don't get that place sometimes. Can't wait to finish it.

    I have no idea who are the ones who had perfect scores on the test. The test was very hard -

    Had a 97% in the class, got a 44% on the midterm. I dont think I have ever gotten a 44 on anything. Any body else notice when they went back that some of their answers had changed? I was trying to be careful scrolling down since the answer went through the options if you pressed the down arrow. But than I didn't have time to go back and check. Fml. I will be soo sad if she doesn't curve this thing atleast a little
