The Drama of a CLEP Transcript Request

I had “request transcripts” on my to do list for Tuesday.  It would be a very simple, straightforward task I was sure.  I needed to contact three different places to collect the transcripts for all my testing of the last three years.  And have them each send two transcripts: one to Liberty University and one to Thomas Edison State College. ACE for my ALEKS math credit:  This was all online.  Very simple and straight forward.  I entered my account information,…

Update on Goals for the Week

Update on Goals for the Week

So, I’m studying for four tests at the same time.  Last week I took a practice test for each subject, after letting them to push through and finish Algebra.   Anyway, here are the results. Statistics – took an assessment and scored at 23%.  Wonderful news for someone who doesn’t have a clue about statistics. Sociology – 49%.  Again, thrilled that with no studying that’s my score Ethics in America – 40%.  Not my strong point.  If it was Biblical…

Random fact about me.  I don’t know anything about Statistics. Nothing. At all. But, by God’s grace, I made scored 19% on my initial assessment with ALEKs Math this morning. And I’m off on my next 3 credits.
