Thanks in part to discussions in this board I decided to do my master's on educational technology at WGU. I have finished my first term and this is my report: - I did not fully understand the concept, probably because I did not read more carefully and did not properly research. I expected more "objective" testing and fewer "performance assessments". - Objective tests are multiple choice, performance assessments are projects, essays, or research papers. - For the first term I submitted 18 papers, at an average of about 10 pages each, they covered three "subjects". - The objective examination (multiple choice) was easy, I passed the pre-test the first time without any studies, made some mental notes of what I did not know and googled it to brush up on it, and I passed with fairly a good grade. Two hours of preparation. - The projects were easy, actually one of the projects was creating a web-site, and the website contains seven more of the projects, such as creating audio-visuals, a database project, a slide presentation and so on. I did not find a single one difficult, but they were all very time consuming. I did need to research some items, for example I was not very familiar with IDEA (individuals with disabilities education act) and a few other things, but everything I needed was easy to find. - I really needed to learn how to write in APA style, having never done it. This was probably what took me the longest as I constantly had to consult manuals to see if it was correct. I think this was a good choice for me as I very much prefer independent work, I expect to be able to work at a faster pace after this first encounter. I hope this helps anyone looking for information on the WGU process; I will post more of my experiences in the future. Thank you everyone on this board, it has been a great source of information on DL.
