These quotes were taken from student surveys of WR courses:
"(Through written assignments), I got a better understanding of hypo- and hyperglycemia, and I also understood myself better."
"The writing assignments made me acquire information that I may not have paid attention to if I did not have to record it."
"The writing assignments gave me a chance to fill in the gaps of information where the book left off. I was challenged to think for myself and express my ideas as well."
"The writing assignments helped me in a big way! They enabled me to understand the material we were studying a lot better and helped my research and writing skills."
