Test Reflection Section 4 February 9, 2011

Filed under: Section 4 — priyanka821 @ 12:11 am

I am  pleased with my score for this test.  Section 4 was a struggle for me so I think I did very well on the final test. However, I still feel like I need to improve my organization because my paper was messy and at times hard to follow. I think I can avoid making this mistake in the future by using a few minutes in the beginning to plan the paper and write a short outline.

Thank you for the feedback and advice Ms. Q 🙂 !
