ENGL 123 Reflective Writing Assignment 1014 

 

 

Reflective Writing Assignment 

 

This assignment serves as the final exam for the course. 

 

Instructions 

 

This course comprised many learning activities, each of which was designed to help you achieve one 

or more of the seven learning outcomes listed in the syllabus. The final exam asks you to think back 

over the course, the activities and exercises, the readings, the assignments, and any other aspect of 

the course. Choose at least three of the learning outcomes and write at least one paragraph for each 

in which you evaluate specifically how you were helped or not helped to achieve the learning 

outcome. (There's no wrong way to do this; you will lose points for this 'exam' only if you don't do it!) 

To help you review the course, the activities are grouped under each learning outcome in this 

document. 

 

Here are some questions to help you think: 

ï‚· What was most effective for you to help you achieve this learning outcome? 

ï‚· What wasn't effective for you? 

ï‚· Were some assignments or exercises too difficult or too time-consuming? 

ï‚· Were some assignments too basic? 

ï‚· Were you surprised at what you learned from doing any of the assignments or exercises? 

ï‚· What do you think might have been helpful that we didn't do? 

ï‚· Did we do too much of something?
