Mini-Quiz: Managing Your Writing Project

by Ron Kurtus (revised 6 April 2004)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.



1. Why must you define the requirements?

So you know exactly what to do

So you can plan on overtime

Only the customer knows the requirements

2. Why is research part of a project?

Writers usually control the research and development process

Time is required to learn about the product

You must learn how to use your word processor

3. What else must a technical writer do besides writing?

Supervising engineers, overseeing technicians

Accounting and payroll issues

Formatting, editing, and graphical design

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Technical Writing. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.


Some don't have time to plan -- but they have time to do the job over
