Participants’ comments on EIA Write Right course surveys

At the end of each course in the Write Right curriculum we developed for EIA, participants completed a course evaluation survey. With a total of 391 students in the courses, we got a lot of feedback. Here are some selected comments (actually a ton of comments), which show why people liked the writing training and what they got out of it.

  • I thought this class was very helpful. I learned at least five things I didn’t know.
  • This course helped me to identify my strengths and weaknesses in terms of written communication skills.
  • Best use of a 1.5-hour meeting I have had in a while.
  • You may think you know how to edit other people’s stuff, but you probably don’t. Take the course!
