Academic Evaluation: Tools and Terms(Do not read!)

The next school term is quickly approaching so I wanted to write a little something for myself that will help me in my upcoming college classes. I’m not putting this in Google Docs or memo simply because I wouldn’t see it and thus forget about it (such is my derpy brain). If I write something here however (and add a pretty feature pic) I’ll be forced to remember it constantly. This blog will be no use to most others so you can stop reading now if you haven’t already but if you are really that curious, I hope you can learn at least one thing *doubt it though cause this is really basic stuff I’m just stupid*

Good day!

How to’s/to do’s

  1. Identify- List and briefly describe  (no need to prove anything yet)
  2. Explain- Make clear the reasons why (something is happening or is the way it is)
  3. Assess (the role)- estimate the value or significance of something  (examine carefully)
  4. Analyze-Examine carefully to determine why. Separate the elements of anything complex (deconstruct) and explain the various parts. *the verb being to deconstruct. Adj deconstruction* Digibro’s videoCoC on how to read people

  1. Great stuff here, especially the “EVIILLL” part (it is in order of evilness, from top to bottom, right?), but I would say some small tweaks are required:

    Put love on the “other” category. It can be a source of evil and nobility, not inherently one or the other. It is a driver, an intensifier, thus has no essential moral alignment to it.

    Put Obedience on the “EVIILL!” category. At first it looks like love and has no essential moral alignment, since if one obeys good things it will be good and the opposite will be EVILL. But really, blindly following is always evil. It is too inconsequential, and generally means a lack of care for what one is doing (instead of analyzing it, simply following) or obsession (when obeying is made with strong faith).
    To drive the point home and contextualize it a bit, it is partly obedience that keeps the first EVILL element running and going.

    Cool shit.

    1. Yes sir indeed it is from most evil to least glad you noticed ;). I decided to take your suggestion about the love categorization (thanks for that!) but I’m still want to leave obedience where it is. Yes blind loyalty can be bad but realistically we can’t always analyze every one of our decisions to make sure they’re right (big or small) or know all the important facts to make one. This is why we have leaders in the first place. Parents, Doctors, Teachers, Generals, sure we must always find time to question basic assumptions experts make but we have these roles to have a more efficient and quicker society that doesn’t have to reprove how everything eorks all the time. I hope that makes sense cause it did in my head at least and thanks again for commenting!
