    Ugh...I got the worst grade EVER in this community stat assignment. It wasn't a difficult assignment but I forgot to include something, and that was my fault, however, I don't feel I deserved to have that amount of points taken off. Going to be a rough 5 weeks.

    They are grading tough!! I am afraid to turn anything in. Missed points on DB and Stat assignment. For windshield are you just listing what you see. Not sure how to write 5 sentences in each section. Stressed!

    Hey...I don't ever remember citing a website in my references when I took this class last year. They are being rough. Sheesh! Again no consistency across TA's.
    Blecch.

    Go out at midnight in a blinding snowstorm on a country road and write exactly what you see;-). I have no clue what I'm doing either. The video just confused me more

    Give a lot of detail. Like " on a country road there were 4 billboards for Dairy Barn. I saw a farmer with a green coat fixing fences..... stuff like that.
    Or if in town, " 3 male youth, one with a black hoodie, another with a green hoodie and one with a blue coat. Each wearing blue jeans...." ridiculous stuff like that. Give huge amount of detail, even the color of the houses or what stores you pass by, anything. Write it as if a robot who sees every detail were recording it. Someone gave me that advice and that is what I did and got a good grade on it.

    It was one of the most boring assignments, and repetitious. I seemed to write about the same stuff over and over, but that is what they want I guess.

    I took this class and I agree with Cincinursemary on the windshield survey. Be descriptive as possible! I found the questions to be repetitive and therefore utilized my fluffing skills! Answering all of the questions ended up being a bit more time consuming than I thought it would be. Once you sit down to do it, it really isn't too bad. Good luck everyone!

    Thanks for the advice Mary. I am going to spend the day tomorrow getting this windshield survey done. The book has good examples too.

    Anyone started Senior Health/public health discussion board?? Two targeted health issues nutrition and transportation or falls want to be on the right track.

    Week 2 done!! Glad to get another week under my belt. The windshield survey seemed extremely long, though I did learn a few tidbits about my community. It looks like week 3's assignments include 2 DB postings. More thinking and writing. This program has always been heavy on writing so this shouldn't surprise me. On to week 3, good luck everyone!

    cincinmary - I really wish I had read yours before I turned in my assignment - this has been such a week...it was all I could do to turn it in - I still could have put in a lot more descriptions than I did...I had better check in more often...

    Sometimes you just have to see the humor in things. We go on a drive in our community in the dead of winter and are asked about people sitting outside eating and playing in the park. I wanted to write that anyone who had their child in the park on the day I was out needed a visit from child protective services or the psych social worker. It was bad enough here that day that I questioned my sanity of being out.

    I too feel like the TA's are not consistent with one another on grading. I missed 2 full points on last weeks stats assignment because I did not double space and indent my references. I feel as though that was a little much to deduct for such simple errors. I am afraid to turn in any more assignments!
