Now I know why I’m a wall flower at gatherings, and I can just as easily entertain myself with a good book or quiet time and be fine with it. I apparently am terrible at sociology, or so my test scores are telling me. We just had a test this past weekend over chapters 6-10, I failed (with a 68%). Come to find out, once I started looking at some of my papers…the information was over chapters 1-10 — no wonder some of it was beyond comprehension, it’s been six weeks since we covered chapters 1-5.
To give some back history, this is my first online course. The teacher has it set up that the entire semester is based on three test scores, each test is over five chapters. We read the book by ourselves, have the option to do online ‘pre-test’ (that have NOTHING in common with the regular test), then take the test at the assigned time by the teacher.
We had a test this past weekend…apparently EVERYONE did as bad or worse than me (the average was 33 out of 60), and the teacher is opening the test back up this weekend and she will be taking the higher of the two test scores. YEAH!! Which means that I will just spend this week studying ALL of the information that we have read up to this point…I remember some of the questions and the information was from chapter 5. Oh well, this is what I get for taking an online course.
I have come to the conclusion that I am an auditory learner…my other classes I have passed with flying colors and have an A average…this class is pretty much going to take me down. :)
