It keeps being brought up in different threads about how a person defines Rigor. I defined a rigorous class in seminary that involved 1 hour lectures three times a week, for fifteen weeks. I had to interact with students during the class, I had to write four 10 page papers, and a final group project, by group 3 other people, which was a 50 page paper. Also, I had weekly quizzes on the reading, a 100 question midterm, and a 150 question final, most of the questions were fill in the blank. I was not able to use my notes for these tests. I had other classes that had 2 hour lectures, 2 times a week, papers, mid-terms, and finals. These classes were challenging. Someone could not simply just breeze through these courses. These classes are from an accredited school, which is a criteria of mine for rigor, yes there are some exceptions, but few and far between. What are your thoughts?
