It should be noted that this is one of the toughest professors I have ever been graded by. I felt like your last post and assignments you wrote were, “TOP NOTCH!!” He gave me a 12 out of a possible 25 points on the discussion forum and an 80% for the 4 page APA written essay. He goes strictly by the rubric and the posted questions. Not an easy class, and by far, not an easy A. Module 4: Discussion Forum
