Rasmussen College Unfair Practices Internet

I am enrolled in a RHIT (Registered Health Information Tech) program at Rasmussen Online College. I was trying to Test Out on some classes in order to save money and time. I felt since I had 20 years experience in this field that I would be able to pass this test (Basic ICD-9 Coding). A couple of the questions I felt were worded in such a way that there was no clear answer to choose from in the multiple chooses but I kept on going. It was a definition question and this was an open book. I had the book (American Academy of Professional Coders) and the definition was in the front of the book; however, not one of the 4 chooses really fit so I choose the best one I could. I knew I couldn't leave it blank. I missed the passing grade by 1 single point or 1/2 of a question (50 questions each worth 2 points). So I requested my test be hand graded due to that 1 question specifically. I did not get anywhere with the person relaying messages back and forth with the instructor. She said it was wrong and went into my schedule for the following semester and changed my classes without my knowledge. I emailed her and told her I will not take that class and she is to changed my classes back to what they were. I also told her I did not appreciate her going into my schedule and making changes. She did apologize and changed the classes back. I spoke with the Dean of the online college. This is what she said when I read her the definition of the question. The test is based on the Class and the book used in that Class. If you had taken the class you would have had the book and you would have answered the question correctly. Therefore, we cannot give you credit for it and you will have to pay the tuition and take the class before you can go further. I told her the whole reason for someone to take the Test Out is to NOT take the class. So what is the point of having Test Out tests if you are going to put questions on them that people who who don't plan on taking the class will never be able to answer correctly. Unless you are trying to trick them into taking classes they probably wouldn't be taking. It wasn't like I was asking for 20 points, I was only asking for a single point due to the question being answered correctly according to the book that I had available to me; which is the book put by the organization who teach Coding and also credential coders (AAPC) all across this country. Feel free to look them up. I am trying to change colleges now.
