Do my stories interest you?
The stories that I created
seems that they are interested
because six people said yes
which is 100%.
Do you think my stories are concise?
I asked them a question and all
of them said yes which is 100%
which means my stories are
Are my stories easy to understand?
The question was, ‘Are my
stories easy to understand?’
and all of six people replied
and say yes which is 100%. So
this means that my stories are
easy to understand.
Do you think I need to add/remove
I asked them that do I need to
add or remove anything. Five
people said no which means I
don’t need to remove or add it
but one person said yes that I
need to change it but I don’t
know what I need to do which
will be on the next question.
No have 83.33% and Yes have
16.67% which means most of
people said I don’t need to
change it at all.
If yes, please tell me.
The question is about that do I
need to change it and this is
only for who said yes. The
person who said yes, they
answered this question which
it says, ‘ Maybe a little bit
shorter next time’ which is a
good advice so next time I will
make sure I can make it little
bit shorter so I don’t bore
people with my stories. Other
four people have replied
because I have made a mistake
that I accidently tick this
require an answer which not
everyone can answer it if they
The strengths I think are that I had a lot of raw interviews which gave me
options about what to use for my final edited stories. I carefully selected the
interviews I wanted to use to make my stories make sense. Another strength
is that my questions were directly related to the news that I was writing about
and stayed on topic. I think I was confident to ask the questions that I wanted
them to answer for my stories.
The weaknesses I think are that although I collected a lot of audio, it took lots
of time to listen and decide what I wanted to use. Another one is when I was
recording, some of the audio has a lot of background noise which is
noticeable on my final stories. Another weakness is that I needed to check
that the equipment was recording and working because I did a number of
interviews that were really good but did not record clearly.
I did three stories which are about, ‘Should We Recycle in College?’, ‘Carrie –
Remake better or worse?’ and ‘Cost of Berlin Trip…too expensive for
students?’. I think the story that is the best is ‘Cost of Berlin Trip…too
expensive for students?’ because it’s most related to the target audience of
college students. There are different opinions from tutors and students. One
of the people who answered my survey said that I could make it shorter next
time even though they think it’s good but I think they are right because my
tutor wanted everyone to do stories that were maximum of one minute and
some of them are little bit over. Next time I ask the questions, I will word
them slightly differently because some people answered with yes or no and I
couldn’t use these in my stories because it didn’t make sense because I
wasn’t including the questions.
