 QuestionParticipant’s answer

Final evaluation
 QuestionParticipant’s answer
  When I compare my expectations to my results, I think that:My goals were reached as I identified the areas to be worked. The developed techniques helped me identify my difficulties and develop strategies to deal with them. The acquaintanceship with people involved in the same project made me think of other possibilities I had not considered until then. In the same way, I think to have contributed, in some way, to the group’s growth.
