Lighthouse Ideas
Hi Everyone, Thank you for your lively discussions about the Lighthouse project. We are very encourage by the ideas discussed so far and your approach to gathering content. I hope to join your call the week of August 4th and have availability most of that week. I’m looking forward to the call. In the meantime please let us know if you need a conference call line set up for the call. A resource we have used in the past to survey people about possible meeting times is Doodle.com. It’s a free service that might be helpful. We have received photos back from the annual meeting. We put a collection of photos on dropbox that can be accessed through the following link, https://www.dropbox.com/sh/h4hfaiyhqgay28j/AABZGcOC_nJQFj3K74P-6uQia Thanks, Kristy

Another class average update - highest average yet!
Here are the current class averages, including the most recent practice test! Good work!

(*Note: Some tests have fewer responses than others affecting the overall average percentages.)

30-Question Pre-Course Test: 68%
50-Question Post-Course Test: 69.1%
Quality Assurance & Control Mini-Test: 74.3%
Food Safety Mini-Test: 72.8%
Food Microbiology Mini-Test - 75.6%
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Please remember that the practice tests are a tool to help guide your studies in preparation for taking the CFS Exam, and the practice test questions are examples of the types of questions you may encounter. 

The course presentations and webcasts were developed to cover the 8 content domains tested on the CFS Exam, and were not developed to provide answers to specific practice test questions or CFS Exam questions.
