“All the skills/projects were good and useful, but if I have to choose one, I would say designing the test. When designing tests in the past, I would use Word but just struggle through the best I could to make everything neat and lined up. Through doing this activity, I learned skills that will make typing up tests and quizzes much easier! Before I didn't know how to use table and columns or how to insert and line up photos from the Internet. I was really excited to "officially" learn how to do these things.” – Diane T.
