We did a thorough analysis at item level to see which items really scored disappointingly. It turned out that not a few of these items were in fact about topics that were very explicitly brought to your attention; during lectures, in practice items, or in special announcements on the course site. So, it seems that at least part of this disappointing score had to do with insufficient preparation. On the other hand, I conferred with a colleague and we decided that indeed the exam was perhaps not easy to do. We made amendments for that by granting you an additional four bonus questions.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
