Write 1-2 paragraphs reflecting on your understanding of concept analysis. Save the reflection as a Word Document. In week 8, you will submit all reflections as a single document. 

This reflection is worth 5 points and the final reflection document in week 8 is worth 15 points.

You will need to post your reflection here before you are able to see other students’ posts.

Some possible areas to explore:

Provide one specific example of how you achieved the weekly objectives. What knowledge do you still need to demonstrate competency in the weekly concepts? What skills do you need to continue developing to apply these concepts?
