The Test: A case study in leadership failure The test was a colossal failure of leadership on all levels You will be seeing your test grade and test and will be very angry and you should be. The test was another (and hopefully) the last large leadership failure in the class. The Test From Feinberg’s point of view There are two reasons to give a test. It forces you to at least pretend to read the book. It is a piece of evidence to display individual achievement. In life’s organizations chances to display individual achievement and accomplishment are really low. Here was a chance for you to stand out. Out of 210 people no one got 100 on the test. Don’t you think I would sit up and take notice if you had been the one person to get a 100. There are other opportunities to stand out individually (be a group leader, be the President, write a fabulous paper, do something else special related to the class). I do not want everyone to get an A on the test because I want to be able to distinguish between A’s and B’s and C’s. I do want people to have the opportunity to get an A.

    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.
