Assignment 1: What Do I Know? What Do I Need to Know?

If you have ever learned how to play an instrument, you know that it takes time to develop proper playing techniques. Some techniques come quickly, while others need to be developed over a much longer period of time. Every musician has his or her own path of development. Similarly with writing, everyone is not good at the same thing at the same time, and everyone does not need help in the same areas. For example, some people completely understand how to use commas, while others struggle. Others have great organizational skills but find it hard to choose just the right word.

This course utilizes the CONNECT diagnostic assessment tool, which determines and points out your strengths and areas for improvement in grammar, usage, vocabulary, and related skills.
