3 College Freshman

Student Body: Most students in the Masters of Education program at Jones International are not ready for graduate level work. Their writing skills are execrable and their papers often incomprehensible. Their ability to read at a college level is questionable. While I question the need for a Graduate Record Exam, I feel it would be prudent to administer some kind of placement test to ensure the students are ready for graduate school. Particularly in a online program, the students just won't get the help they need to succeed if they are already behind the curve in terms of reading comprehension and English writing skills.

There were students in the online classes from all over the country. Many of them were working teachers who had been out of college for years and even decades. Their focus has been on teaching (often at-risk) elementary and high school students and their brains have not been exercised at a level needed for success in graduate school. For several of them, English was a second language, though admittedly their writing wasn't much worse than that of native speakers.

I'm not sure what is meant by "rate the student body." They were average folks from many different places. There was an understandable left-lean politically that tended to squelch some discussion.

During my last semester I had wrist surgery that precluded me from completing my final thesis on time. I was allowed to submit it late with a small grade penalty, which I thought was fair. I had purchased Dragon so I'd be able to complete my work for school, but my computer at the time wouldn't work with it - something wrong with the internal microphone processor or something - but I should have made sure that would work before I had a deadline looming.

Student Body: It seems that there is a variety of ethnics, black/white/Indian/Foreign, etc. I don't know about their religions, or political likes or dislikes, and do not care to know.

Student Body: Jones International University is an online school, but the instructors are so helpful and friendly. The courses are created to challenge me to do the best I can do. The students encouraging to one another and give suggestions on different things to make you think.
