Following instructions and understanding rules
If you answered most of them with “always” then your level of proficiency is high. If
you answered most of them with “sometimes” or “never” then you will have to work
harder on the achievement of those competencies.
Si la mayoría de tus respuestas fueron “siempre” significa que tu desempeño actual es alto; si la mayoría fueron
“a veces” o “nunca” significa que tienes que trabajar con más empeño para desarrollar esas competencias.
