My key issues with the exam were that it was an intense, social situation. For those of you who don’t know what a Compulsion Loop is, let me explain.
The Exam Assessor, who is also referred to as the “Assessor”Principal” of the college, will make up a series of questions to test the students’ intelligence, reasoning and vocabulary. This includes vocabulary words and language that are familiar to you. Many people who took the exam did not realize that they were required to use these vocabulary words in addition to testing them on their knowledge of college English.
Commonly asked questions were also frequently filled out incorrectly. The first time I went into the examination room, I was having a hard time focusing on my answers. I felt overwhelmed, uncomfortable and unprepared. At the time I didn’t realize that I should have just turned in my answers and tried to finish the test without distractions.
There were numerous instances where I could have prepared better or discussed issues more completely with the Exam Counselor. While it might be easy to take the exam and not focus on the material, it is easy to become distracted and forget to answer the questions. By using a Compulsion Loop Detector, I was able to find this disconnect early on.
After the exam I felt quite beaten down. I had to go back to school and get the placement tests done before I could even think about my college major. The focus was still clouded by the exam and I knew that I needed help.
I took a quiz online that I can take at any time and pick from anywhere. If I am studying and want to study effectively, I can take the quiz and focus, pick and choose the types of answers that I want, correct my mistakes, complete my reading assignments and participate in class discussions.
After the exam, I still felt quite exhausted and I felt as if I needed a little boost. One of the things that helped me feel better was the ability to know I had this internet based quiz at my disposal.
I took the quiz and sat down to complete it. When I began answering questions, it was so easy and enjoyable. I felt proud of myself and decided that I wanted to find other people who had taken the quiz and find out if I was right in my conclusions.
I began to read the questions to see if there were any questions in my previous history that I was unaware of. After a few days I found out that I had some questions on my test that I hadn’t known about before. That was very good because it meant that I could have fixed these issues and done a better job on my exams.
My next step would be to try to get answers for the questions that I wasn’t aware of but I would have to research and see where I was mis-leading myself. I would then try to come up with some answers and determine whether or not I could have gotten the same results in a different way.
My conclusion is that I took the quiz and it was easy to take and very clear and straightforward. I now have answers to my questions about the exam and I am confident that I did the best possible that I could have possibly done.
