I wasn’t sure what to expect with this quiz. I always have some nervousness with the first quiz. I did know that it was going to short answer, longer answers, and no multiple choice. I found on testable information that note-taking and writing it by hand makes me remember things better. I like to review the slides to make sure I understand all of the concepts. If class material is not familiar, I’ll go back and watch that part of the lecture. The thing I find most important is to be distraction-free during class and to participate as much as possible. Having two children home with me while attending class online has also made zoom classroom learning my biggest challenge.
In the future, I plan to write out more detailed notes for describing concepts so I can apply them to other applications. I believe many of my classes have taught me to be complacent with multiple choice answers being available. I would also say that I will need to try to use the terminology more appropriately. It can be challenging for me to use words that I am not confident in their full usage while writing. I will try to make my wording my next quiz goal.
