grrrrr!!! Our A&P professor has told us that a couple of students have filed complaints about the class. We have only had 1 test, and it was mostly fill in the blanks. These people complained that all of our tests should be multiple choice (its too much writing and too difficult to remember that much material) and that the professor should use more handouts (meaning handouts of what information we should know) and that they want "group work".
Come on. Seriously? As far as the tests go, either you know the material or you dont! It should not matter what format the test is given in! I am in the same class and wrote the same test....98%. If I (and other classmates) can score 80% or higher, then I think its a matter of these other folks not trying hard enough.
As for handouts, each class we are given a handout with an outline of whats being covered. Its up to you to do the reading and make notes. These boneheads want all the material given out! They dont want to do the work!!!
And group work....geez....we dont have time for that! Not only that, they want to be given a good grade for nothing! Our professor doesnt want to add that to our plate, but he's being forced by the Nursing Director!
I cant believe how some people can be! This is College! You need to do the work! Yes, its a lot of work, but come on! It can be done! I'm proof of that!
It ticks me off when people want the easy way out in life.
Sigh. I have to get back to my reading now!
This totally ticks me off too!!
We just had our phys test and our instructor gives you all the info that will be on the test...she tells you what the questions will be and even lets you record it!!!
I take notes in lecture (by the way she also provides these), create tests form the info she gives and study it as if the entire test is fill ins. The tests are mostly multiple choice, but you need to know the reasons for the answers to do well. I got 100 on the test plus 2 bonus points.
People are complaining because the multiple choice answers were too CONFUSING!!!!!! She gave us all the test questions verbally! All you had to do was record them, or write them down! There were no surprize questions or anything that wasn't already given to you.
This scares the heck out of me..... I hope the people I work with someday actually LEARNED the material and didn't just figure out how to pass the tests.
My microbio partner (not my choice), will not even read the labs and then wants to tell me how to do them..... I got an 89 on my first test... he barely passed. I made a few simple errors.... which I learned from. He is still doing the same things.... it drives me nuts! He wants to go on to be a doctor.....
I know there are going to be times when you couldn't put in the effort you wanted to....life happens. But overall, the attitude that the grades are owed to you without appropriate work is just ridiclous.
