Mostly A’s: Wow. You are an annotating olympian! You probably have a whole drawer in your desk to store your arsenal of multi colored highlighters, fine-point gel pens, and sticky notes. Chances are, your annotations have been used as an example at least once a quarter, and are so aesthetically pleasing that you could consider them the start of a DAAP portfolio! In general, you’re very extra, on top of your work, and enjoy organization.

Mostly B’s: You are a true fan of simple living. I mean, all you really need to annotate is a highlighter and a pencil. Your annotations might not be the prettiest, but they get the job done. You tend to be a little disorganized, and a procrastination expert (especially when it comes to annotating).

Mostly C’s: So... do you even annotate at all? Just kidding, of course you do (thanks to those annotation checks), but in all seriousness, annotating, as it turns out, is not one of your higher priorities. You live a very fast-paced, busy life and you probably have different things to do with your time than highlight passages of Julius Caesar.
