Knowledge Audit
For each statement below, indicate your level of CONFIDENCE & KNOWLEDGE about the statement using the following scale:

1. Very Poor : you've never heard of this topic or idea.
2. Poor : you've heard this, but couldn't share any detailed information about it.
3. Fair : you remember the basic information about this topic or idea.
4. Good : you remember details and examples about this topic or idea.
5. Very Good : you could teach others about this topic or idea.
