So I have been processing feelings and responses and ethics and competency, and feeling grateful for whichever classmate brought fruit for the potluck as that was all I could eat. And my classmates were talking about the exam for our human behavior class, and how only 10 to 15 of the 50 questions were answerable with what was actually covered in our class the last 8 weeks...and well, I took it on Saturday. And it was all true...15 questions, being generous, were actually covered or at least mentioned, and 35 were in no way covered at any time or mentioned in class, or handouts, or reading materials provided. And his is a required pre-requisite course that you are required to take to prep for all future courses.
I still have my textbook from the prior 300 level version of this course i took at my old school, and in that 300 level textbook is everything we were expected to know for the exam. And a full explanation of how to apply the theories in practice. Something else she has failed to have us understand.
And I am not sure what i will do, but i have a letter started to send her by email. It isn't "nice" but isnt rude, just very honest about my and my classmates legitimate fear of lack of competency in this course...I mean what exam do you not cover more than half of the material for in 8 weeks? And we are paying for this education, and the school is under accreditation pr0bation, and I cannot find anything to ethically state i shouldnt inform the accreditation agency of this, because it is an egregious failure. Most in my class want to quit over this, and I don't blame them. I will be really sad if they do go, though.
I'm not sure what i will do, contacting the dean, contacting the licensing boards and accreditation boards, and higher ed dept, and more are all possible...i want to quit too, though...this is exhausting, I fought DVR for 6 months for this, and i'm not here to teach myself.
I have one professor who is great, and he other is still scattered, and i'm not certain i'm doing well in that class. But oh well...most is at the 'fuck all of this' point...it only took 8 weeks in to take me to the point it took several years to make me feel in my prior schools.
