    Hey Rosi. I must have done something right, because she already gave me 100% in the subjective assignment. I'll see how I fear on the Obj one. Let me know if you need help. I'll PM you.
    jadiva, good for you! I got 5 points deducted off my COLDSPA (apparently I was not specific enough on Associated factors/affects the client portion), but I will take the A. I also took the 2nd test, it focuses on the assessment for normal/abnormal findings the whole exam. Actually changed one answer at the end and got a 100%. BTW, after reading the discussion board postings, there might be some ticked off students. Only 10 out of 30 in my group posted a peer-review article on the DB. I think it is worth 50 points! Hopefully they will grade the Obj assignment today so we can see how to proceed.

    jadiva,
    My coach sent an email last Sunday to make sure we included one in our post. I think it is in the rubric also. Check out your grades section to look at the rubrics posted there. This week you need to include 2 references, one from your diagnosis book and a peer review article from a journal. Don't worry, their not worth major points (like the assignments & quizzes).

    Well, I got my 50%....lol. Can't do nothing about it. Just gotta make sure I give them what they want next time. Amy, how was test 2?. I'm thinking of doing it tonight too.

    For assignment 2, do we have to do a coldspa for each current issue?

    I think you have to have one for each subjective assignment, but not each system in the assignment. Put it under current or past history if you can. Just make sure you have 1. That is all I am doing.

    I take that post back. One for each current complaint. Put under current history in subjective assignment. But you just need one, unless you have a client with multiple complaints in every system or area you assess.

    Jadiva, Amy is right, just one COLDSPA for each complaint. But if your patient has a multitude of complaints you're in for a long couple of days. I still have not gotten any grades back for my first two data collection assignments. Keeping my fingers crossed and hoping for the best.

    commonsense,
    I did pretty good. Better than I expected. Got 5 point docked on objective assignment for not putting my client's B/P with mmHg behind it! That was not in the grading rubric. Is there anything but a mercury measurement to get a B/P? A-line maybe? Good grief...

    They are VERY nit-picky, so yes, even if it seems like overkill, don't forget anything...not even the little stuff. I got dinged for not having F after the temperature (I just put 98.6).

    Good job Jadiva!! I am so happy for you! I am still waiting for my grade, but we'll see. I'm putting my best effort on the week 2 assignments though. We can make it through this, we only have less than 4 weeks left!!

    Good luck!

    You're not the only one who left that out Amy. Your post made me go back and recheck my assignment, I forgot the mmHg as well. Guess I'll start out with a 95 on the objective assessment, still haven't heard anything as far as grading goes. Hopefully I get something with a grade back on it soon so I can get started on the Week 2 Assignment.
