Mini-Quiz: Types of Documentation Needed by Companies

by Ron Kurtus (revised 3 May 2003)

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

1. Why would a marketing writer need to know about online writing?

Distribution of marketing is moving toward online

To gain skills to move to another field

It is not really necessary these days

2. Why are user guides and manuals important?

They keep the writers busy

It is something else to sell to the customer

So the customer can learn to use the product

3. Who should develop training materials?

Trainers and writers working together

Only trainers know what is needed

Only writers have the capability to do the job

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.
