Am I required to use the Assess Your Skills tool at the beginning and end of my project?

Yes. This tool not only shows you the progress you’ve made to improve your skills, but it also helps you prepare for your final speech in the “Reflect on Your Path” project. Make sure you complete both Assess Your Skills sections—the first one before you begin and the second after you complete the project. This way, you have an accurate reflection of how you may have improved over time.

When you complete Assess Your Skills, be sure to rate yourself on every statement. Once you’ve done so, a Submit button will appear below the Back and Next buttons. You must select this button to ensure your responses are saved.
