IT'S ANNOYING WHEN PEOPLE GIVE YOU A BAD RATING FOR NO REASON

Maybe there's an error somewhere because I can't imagine why I would only have an average rating of 5 on my medical terminology quiz. The content is exactly as described and there are no errors. I hope there is an error because I hate to think people would just be mean and give you a bad rating because they didn't score well.

Ok, I'm done venting.

Thank you and good night.

Erica

How 'bout when someone gives you a good rating for a good reason? I enjoyed your quiz very much and gave it all I could. Don't let it get you down. It could've been someone hitting a glitch and getting locked out by an error.

Don't know the reason for the low score because I just took your quiz and while I didn't do as well as I would have liked, I found it fun and I learned quite a bit with it, too. It's probably just the way some people score. Just keep up the good work

Among the reasons I've discovered for low ratings:

* People thought a quiz took too long to complete (i.e., it wasn't short answer)
* People thought the quiz wasn't meaty enough.
* They didn't like the subject matter.
* They didn't like the illustration you added on the front
* They didn't like the fact that you didn't add an illustion on the front.
* The test was too easy.
* The test was too hard.
* Your use of big words confused and frightened them.
* You use of commonterminology was, to them, patronizing.
* The dog took a wizz on the rug and they needed to kick someone else.
* A wizard took the dog on the rug, and they needed someone to kick ... but who's going to kick a wizard?
* They heads ache, their feet stink and they don't love Jesus.
* Oh, or you made the mistake of calling them out for being rude to someone else on the board, and this is the only way they can get back at you.

So many reasons, so few justifications. If it helps, remember that barring just an attrocious quiz, no right-thinking person is going to dump on a quiz. And there's just not much you can do about the non-right thinking folks ecept rise above them.

Their petty attempt to bring you down is all they have. Their only power comes in your believing it.

Whether you let them succeed or not is, of course, up to you. Personally, I wouldn't give them the satisfaction.

Keep quizzing!

I didn't take the quiz in question, but a 5 isn't exactly bombing a quiz. It's in the middle.

Thanks everyone and thanks, Revdodd, for the laugh. I guess I was just cranking last night and spoke too soon. I'm sorry!

Have a great weekend everyone! I'm off to go camping!

What? What kind of response is that???!

I'm giving you a 2!

Now, excuse me...I've gotta go kick a wizard!
