Mini-Quiz: Process of Writing a Technical Manual

by Ron Kurtus (revised 15 October 2006)

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

1. Is taping an interview with a SME a good idea?

No, it often offends them

Yes, so you don't forget important information

Only if you don't know shorthand

2. Why should another person proof-read and edit your work?

It is not necessary, if you are careful

So more than one person gets blamed

Often you are too close to the work to see mistakes

3. Why should interim products be delivered?

To make sure each step is completed

To prevent lawsuits or legal actions

To stretch out the work

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.

Developing skills in your trade increases your feeling of confidence
