    Discussions is alright. We use black board. I'm in research and informatics right now. Its alot of work because you have to do project or portfolio through out and discussions. You have to post at 3 times for discussions through out the week, but with deadlines. So far I haven't had any tests. In research, you have one group assignment in which that was easy. It was just simply an outline of a chapter. Lastly, I'm loving the program so far although it could alot work and reading. Well thanks and good luck of whatever you choose to do.

    I'm currently enrolled in the AGNP program about to start my clinical next term the only courses where you have quizzes are your specializations courses being (3 in total):

    1.) Advanced pharm
    2.) Advanced Patho
    3.) Advanced health assessment

    The course is good I am enjoying the flexibility to continue working full time while pursuing my master's.

    Open book. Some are timed and some are not...which sometimes makes open book difficult

    how many questions does a quiz usually average? and is the final grade a cumulative of the quizzes, papers, and discussions?

    As of right now I am in the advanced pathophysiology class. The quizzes for this class seem to range from 25 to 40 questions so far. The only other class I had quizzes in so far was statistics which if u have 2 take that I believed they also had about 45 or so. I haven't taken the other specialization courses so not sure on them. All the quizzes, discussions etc are all worth points and your overall score will be based on how many points u have. For example a quiz is worth 30 points and u get 25 points out of 30
