I've decided that I'm going to tackle the selected-response and short answer competencies first. My coach, however, did warn me that, if I have to switch to course-based, I can't transfer courses if all of the competencies haven't been completed. I'll risk it.

After that, I plan to work on the performance tasks. The work products require the most work, and the papers, generally, have to be single-spaced. I don't think I've ever had to write single-spaced papers. They're harder for instructors to read, and APA formatting calls for double-spaced papers. It makes no sense to require APA formatting, but ask students to break the rules of the style.

That's interesting! I specifically asked my advisor about this and was told double-spaced papers. Does it say single spaced in the instructions, or did someone tell you single-spaced?

That is very interesting. I have never seen a professor ask for APA style and ask for the paper to be done single-spaced. ?

The instructions for most of the work products say single-spaced.

My coach told me to ask the SME. Considering that there could be a different SME for each course, I wonder if I have to ask each one.

Two master's and a PhD now. Yes, I know that's insane.

Let us know what you find out! I am still doing the foundations. The documents they gave us for statistics are ridiculously long. I think I may just take the exam & see how I do. I have already spent way too long on statistics.
