    I agree with you! I do my job and I am a team player but I do not tolerate certain things. If people are disrespectful, rude, etc., I ask them to step into an empty room, close the door, and we have a professional conversation. I have done this with other RNs, NTs, and providers. Communication is key to a successful team and often people, myself included, do not communicate as well as we could/should. Being able to own your shortcomings, apologize when you should, and clear the air when necessary, allows us to all function at our best. People will only take advantage of you if you allow them to do so. Set your boundaries and stick to them. If requests are unreasonable, say so.

    Maybe I'm not doing it right, but the teaching plan didn't seem that hard. For the evaluation we only had to put in the kind of evaluation we were doing , and what % of correct answers we would deam acceptable for passing , right?
    We don't have to add the info about eval , like we did for the content outline ( references, etc.)??
    The directions say to explain why you chose the percentage and also asks for references...

    I questioned whether or not we had to use the forms for the week 4 assessment at all....it does not state to use them in the directions or in the rubric. The response from my TA: "I grade by the rubric"....sooo, I am NOT using the forms!! If I get dinged for not using them I will refer back to the rubric, and fight it...I'm with you guys, this is the worst class so far!!

    Sounds like you have unfortunately gotten as super picky TA. S.B. Bastable is the editor and is also a contributor to the book. There are multiple contributors to the book and who wrote each particular chapter is listed at the start of each chapter. If you look at the class syllabus, that book is referenced as I responded to another poster. Not sure if your specific TA wants you to cite differently -
    thank you for your post! I saw your previous citation of Bastable, which is identical to the way I have been citing it...but she stills insists its incorrect...and yes, she is not only super picky, but she has been marking me off on things that she says were required in the directions that are not actually listed as a requirement in the directions...very frustrating!

    Hi all!! I'm just finding this website...looks like I have been missing out! I'm in assessment now too! As far as Bastable, my TA keeps saying that it is an edited book, but she won't tell me/us WHERE she sees editors. It's so frustrating!! Anyone else having problems getting your TA to actually answer a question?
