Grades for my Last Class

My last class was Program Evaluation. This class was rough. We went over how to do a program evaluation (I don't ever want to have to do this). Our papers were continuous throughout the class, meaning that one built on the next. We had to pick an organization for the papers. I chose to go with Hope for the organization. Then we had to choose one program that the organization runs. I chose the Warm Line.

If you aren't familiar with Hope's Warm Line, it is a number you can call for any problem you are having with any mental illness, but specifically it was set up to help prevent suicide.

For our papers in this class we had to decide what type of evaluation would provide the most information about the program. The first paper was just an introduction to the organization and the program chosen to cover. The second paper was about what information the organization would  want about the program. The final paper was about what methodology we would use to collect the information and what type of information these items would gather. It also had to contain what types of analysis you would choose to do if you were preforming the evaluation.

Again, I did not like this class and it was pretty tough, but surprisingly I got an A- or 95.58%. I was shocked that I managed to do so well in this class.

Have a great day!

School

20160404_200347

School is going good so far. My dissertation is coming up which has me pretty scared. This is going to be a big undertaking and I just don't know if I am ready for it. I guess I really don't have a choice in the matter as I only have one more class to go before we begin.

I have to say I am pretty proud of myself right now, I am carrying a 3.70 GPA to date. The program has been hard but in about 8 months I will be done. I will have my PhD. I have been working toward this for about 6 years now. I am so ready for it to be done. Of course, then I have to pay back the student loans. I have been making small payments over the years though so I know that should help.

This course I am in right now is a bit rough. The instructor nit picks everything. I know it's just to make us better, but sometimes they can be pretty harsh. I love the feedback except when they come across as talking down to you. I want constructive criticism, something I can fix. I think I have always been that way. I want to know when I've done something wrong and I want to know what I need to do to fix it.

So, my next class is another research class and I am not looking forward to that one either. However, my classes are only 8 weeks so that really isn't too bad.

Have a great day!
