Week 3 – Quiz reflection

I took my own advice from last week’s reflection and attempted this week’s quiz when my mind was still fresh and not stale from hours of study.

Happily, it was a success and I got 100% on my first attempt.

None of the questions were difficult because I find it easy to recognise grammar mistakes in other people’s writing.

I’d like to think I’m just as good at recognising them in my own work, but I’m sure I’ve mistakes like everyone else.

I did have one small problem with question two:


After reading the options a few times, I was convinced that ‘all of the above’ was the correct answer because I thought each point was valid.

After reviewing the textbook (Hicks 2016, p. 42) again, I decided that option B was the closest to what was stated so I chose it.

Thankfully, it was correct.

  1. Hello, I read your new post about week 3’s quiz and congratulate for your success. You might have read and understood deeply the textbook as your writing is very good. It would be better if you indicated the question 2 which you mentioned in the post. Generally speaking, it was the good post.

    1. Hi,

      Thank you for your feedback :).

      Yes, that’s a great idea to say what the question 2 was. As Kate and our textbooks mention, we are supposed to spell stuff out and not just assume that other people will understand what we’re talking about.



    1. Hi Ben,

      Thank you so much :). I didn’t think it sounded that interesting so it just goes to show that our worst critic is ourselves!

      You will get better at your reflections, I’m sure :). Most of us are still new to this blogging and self-reflection thing so we can’t be too hard on ourselves.
