reeveshd 2018-06-21 11:52:41

I thought it was a well put together program
dsutton 2018-06-21 11:48:22

Content is great and the module is put together well. The lesson often asked multiple choice questions just before the video. I feel they would have been more beneficial if they were presented right after.
jyrelldsheddsr 2018-06-20 20:32:12

Good course for the newbie and a good refresher for those who have training under their belt.
Klolson3 2018-06-20 19:38:24

Highly recommend even if not going to be a spotterLots of great info for personal use.
davestorm24 2018-06-19 21:42:43

The lessons were very clear and planned out well.
F3chasers 2018-06-19 17:47:27

Very understandable lesson!
Upnorth Here 2018-06-19 13:50:29

Useful introduction of basic concepts.
paulwyse 2018-06-19 09:34:57

Lesson plan does not make clear what might be the least best answer for several of the questions, especially ones which contain multiple checked answers in a question.
KelliExclaimed 2018-06-18 16:29:03

Fun layout with useful diagrams!
crsciowa 2018-06-18 15:37:33

A_Bozman 2018-06-18 13:28:49

The lesson was great however I found the quiz particularly difficult, and I even took notes! Narrowing down the answers to no more than 5 options would be helpful.
Dan6310 2018-06-17 20:27:44

I strongly suggest everyone that loves watching storms to go take the skywarn test to become a trained weather spotter
WeatherGirl1999 2018-06-17 15:46:34

I feel liked I learned a lot with this lesson and would recommend it to others!
Jess34 2018-06-17 13:59:55

I do recommend others to do this
PapaDave 2018-06-17 11:36:53

I have taken spotter classes before. It was a great refresher.
micon 2018-06-17 10:13:51

Overall a good introduction to storm spotting. Would like to see the correct answers in the quiz review.
dochjholliday 2018-06-15 09:29:35

I am a ham radio operator, conducting sky warn nets. This sky warn spotter training gives me more confidence in my communication skills with NWS.
kk4nqq 2018-06-15 07:08:40

Great Training!
Jmorris1958 2018-06-15 06:40:36

Genejperih 2018-06-13 18:29:17

A very good introduction to the role, quite comprehensive.
barnburner1271 2018-06-13 17:01:35

the lessons work well but nothing on ham radio training which is encouraged by sky warn and nws
Kirk_Nitz 2018-06-13 09:35:33

It is easy to understand and not unncessarily complicated.
iflyak 2018-06-12 15:57:15

Very informative for the responsibilities of a Skywarn spotter
JBuschmann 2018-06-12 08:15:58

MWLeonard64 2018-06-11 14:20:45

GQueener 2018-06-11 11:21:44

While this may be viewed as basic information it is a good lesson to run through.
Wavapps 2018-06-10 13:41:10

I would like to share my weather data from my WMR200A weather station. I have been submitting those reports for over 6 years now and want to expand it to all that I can.

It could be better
wahatonen 2018-06-05 15:11:11

Weather spotting is a great thing to do and getting back into it by this course is a good thing.
wleue 2018-06-05 08:50:50

This is a good introduction to Skywarn Spotter training for individuals with no prior Skywarn experience, and should provide a solid base upon which to base further training.
Stryker1123 2018-06-04 17:10:47

It was a very educational lesson and was thorough..Very easy to understand
StormSafe 2018-06-03 21:22:07

I would definitely recommend this website and lesson to my peers.
RobSmith1 2018-06-03 15:49:36

Great class!!
KevinOK 2018-06-01 14:38:47

A complete review of the quiz results should have provided not only the correct answers but also a short explanation as to the reason for each.
kb4lod 2018-06-01 09:39:11

Very good.
sloss2003 2018-06-01 09:34:43

I was stupid on the quiz.
specialks02 2018-05-31 19:17:11

It a lot of information but the quiz can be a little confusing but overall easy!
toddl6843 2018-05-30 19:10:21

I have been slowly getting into Storm Spotting for the last 2 years and still this lesson taught me more than i expected. 2018-05-30 15:10:11

It would be useful if we could be redirected to the text if the missed questions for review.

kc3pcs 2018-05-27 16:39:34

i would add a bit more to the videos, to give them more of a realistic feel.
W9AUA 2018-05-27 13:05:09

Have taken classroom weather spotter courses on several occasions
TMBecena0620 2018-05-27 10:24:00

Informative, but I believe it would be a little more helpful if there was more of an interactive component.
thundersnow 2018-05-27 10:01:52

Excellent course. I have taken the local Spotter training give in my area and this course helped me to understand better and take notes. Recommend.
jbush 2018-05-27 07:19:04

To me this material is interesting but this 'program' takes any real learning benefit out of it. I understand that this is a cheap alternative but nothing is better than a good personal interaction with a live person who is equally excited about this or any other topic.
jcbousum 2018-05-25 17:34:52

mccweather 2018-05-25 01:17:01

BluRie 2018-05-23 18:54:24

Showing the correct answers to the quiz after taken would be benefical to learning. Knowing what was wrong will allow the user to know what to look into
Robfwa 2018-05-23 12:09:28

The comment I made with question
Remiel 2018-05-23 11:49:51

Questions on the quiz were somewhat ambiguous. I did not feel that the material presented was adequately represented by the exam questions.
vc1921 2018-05-23 08:11:15

great lesson gives you alot of info
Bociba 2018-05-22 20:09:13

Content is fine, however I would like to emphasize that agencies tend to monitor telephone contact, official emails/texting, etc. over twitter accounts.
pepper7185 2018-05-22 17:31:33

Even for the basics, you can still learn a few things.I

pretty good but should be updated
ocatrina 2018-05-15 11:50:55

I could find no clear answers to a couple of the quiz questions. Questions should require definite answers instead of "close."
smokesters13 2018-05-15 10:08:35

love the online concept
stormstalker 2018-05-14 22:17:13

I was answering a few of the questions correctly and was still marked wrong. The answers need to be improved upon.
quilts2b 2018-05-14 21:55:35

It explained a great deal about what a spotter needs to know and why.

daveaa5hy 2018-05-09 18:47:02

This is a Basic Level of training as indicated by the title of the course. However, I feel it should get a little deeper into the role of Spotters by offering more insight to actual weather conditions a spotter should look for such as wall clouds, rotating storms, downdrafts, etc.
Jules61 2018-05-09 11:16:24

MegaSchultz 2018-05-05 09:00:13

Knowing that it's not as important for you to memorize the lesson verbatim, but to learn how you will apply that information in real-life situations is critical for these lessons. For some of us, it's a method we've desired for a long time.
LoJe 2018-05-04 17:02:04

The lesson provides valuable information.
SOKYSpotter 2018-05-04 14:58:59

Great course and easy to follow
LCCCTeach 2018-05-03 06:37:44

I wish there had been better examples of required information when reporting weather. One question in the quiz did not match the information given - storm damage report (number of broken limbs, wires down) is not the same as TYPE of hazardous weather. While the TYPE of hazardous weather (in this case high winds) is required, the storm damages are appreciated but not essential, according to NWS.
Blin53 2018-05-02 23:59:23

It was a great experience
IsabelK 2018-05-02 19:54:36

I have always loved learning about weather. If I was studying my major of Early Childhood Education already, I would have went to college for meteorology.

The lesson provided very little information related to the topic and needs to be adjusted. Additionally some of the contact information to report weather is not accurate.

I have been through Spotter training before in person. This was very well done, but there is some disconnect between the information covered and the answers expected in the quiz--nothing major, but there are some things that are less than completely on point.
Danno431 2018-04-17 11:33:39

Wonderful Experience. A Lot of good information
danwether1989 2018-04-17 08:38:44

It was a good experiance
bjanderson360 2018-04-17 00:30:19

Good work folks, you're doing great!
wlayers 2018-04-16 19:21:29

This was great!
messiahofnaders 2018-04-16 10:30:13

Pretty basic stuff. Don't do this if you're looking to become a "storm chaser" This is a volunteer based "spotter". Spotters are for safety.
gusman321 2018-04-16 10:17:59

JessicaBebel 2018-04-15 20:00:43

I would like to see the quiz follow the information provided in the quiz. I received 3 incorrect answers and I believed them to be correct based on what I documented from the lab.
Jas700 2018-04-15 19:28:57

Very informative, Common sense is a life saver, I have been through all kinds of adverse weather, Safety is and should always be PRIORITY and these lessons stress that .. Remember if you ask yourself should I or shouldnt I, the answer is you shouldnt .Be safe always... Highly recommend these modules ...
570262 2018-04-15 17:40:42

this course helped me understand the spotter role and the effects of weather and shown me how to be more aware of everything around me
vickivanden 2018-04-15 12:31:59

I enjoyed the course and the flex ability of it offered online.

Amyj1023 2018-04-14 20:17:48

I learned a few new things 2018-04-14 17:44:30

well worth the small amount of time needed to be invested
Ashanov27 2018-04-14 11:00:22

This is an excellent way to reinsure that spotters are properly trained.
sorendillinger 2018-04-13 21:48:20

samb 2018-04-13 16:28:35

This is a lot of valuable information that is great for anyone who is interested
N6TBC 2018-04-12 18:52:14

Questions 1is eitherlooking for an answer to discussed or mark correct answer wrong. Question 2 answers are all allowed but question want an answer that is not listed in the answers. 2018-04-12 15:07:18

thank you for the great work the NWS dose on a daily basis
drdanburrell 2018-04-12 11:09:20

Rattler0110 2018-04-11 16:55:45

Great experience
Dust 2018-04-11 13:47:19

The lesson was pretty decent and involved more real life situations than some other similar training I have taken. I do feel that a few of the quiz questions were perhaps not completely made clear throughout the lesson but I also believe that it made me have to really know answers as opposed to just using common sense
ShockBucks 2018-04-11 09:47:53

Basic common sense information presented. A good starting point.
twishtedshadow414 2018-04-11 09:41:06

excellent class
aaronmblank 2018-04-11 09:39:09

Very informative, the lessons are easy to follow along with and are to the point.
Gottin 2018-04-11 08:19:08

This is a quick and fairly easy training method. The intro gives you a brief and handy outlet for what a spotter's responsibilities are, who to report weather conditions to, and how to do it.
KC9HKW 2018-04-10 22:42:14

This is a great introductory lesson for spotters. It is easy to use and understand.
kd8wvy 2018-04-10 17:24:55

Some of the questions on the quick did not seem to match up.
kenbrannan 2018-04-05 20:50:30

This lesson would be easily understood by someone with no formal education in weather spotting. I have formal spotter education but still found useful information here in the lesson.
Skm306 2018-04-05 19:30:16

As alongtime educator, I recognize a well developed and well presented program
Carson297 2018-04-04 15:19:07

sandyfoster15 2018-04-03 10:17:26

Bite sized and interactive.
terryjewell 2018-04-03 09:29:13

the quiz is great and other than how to report it refreshes your memory on what you should do as a trained spotter
erinjensen 2018-04-03 09:08:59

I enjoyed this lesson.
jmach2 2018-04-02 20:34:25

This was a great way to learn about becoming a Skywarn Spotter.
mydisastertraining 2018-03-31 18:00:15

Overall pretty good. Some of the video content could have been done better. Leave out the story telling and create clear and concise enabling learning objectives.
veheinrich 2018-03-31 13:32:39

Good data. Like emphasis on safety.
psSkyWatcher 2018-03-30 13:02:24

Good focus on personal safety. Clear explanations about what items to observe and how to make reports.
ldhardt65 2018-03-30 11:26:17

Excellent tutorial, I really did learn more about spotters than I thought. Being from Texas I have always been amazed at the weather and a bit scared of it too. A new understanding. 2018-03-30 11:12:24

mikeboyce 2018-03-30 05:10:34

billsalina 2018-03-29 20:48:38

This course covers all the topics in the SkyWarn spotters guide. It uses videos and scenarios that bring the content to life. I would recommend this course to anyone who intends to become a NWS SkyWarn spotter.
Wrestleman 2018-03-29 20:12:23

I would pass this on to others

Dem_t3a 2018-03-28 16:04:03

It is very helpful and Educational. Even if being a spotter, or Chaser is not of desire, I would still recommend on taking this course for the sake of yourself, loved ones, and family
K5OFA 2018-03-28 13:14:55

good way to learn the material. Progress at your own pace.
Doxiemama16 2018-03-28 10:57:18

Questions were worded confusingly and not in line with what was taught in the lesson.
jthreet 2018-03-27 11:29:08

rprechtl 2018-03-27 10:47:55

The quiz questions (all of the correct answers) do not always reflect the lesson content.
axonic 2018-03-27 00:57:10

The videos and audio clips were fun, that was better than I expected. Serious story time for serious kids who like story time. Makes ya learn stuff. My favourite kind of classroom! :)
MichaelGrisham 2018-03-26 18:13:18

I feel more comfortable in my effort to becoming a storm spotter. This was a basic knowledge of information, but I felt I gained a decent amount of information.
ChrisPete49 2018-03-26 17:00:43

I learned a lot about super safety and how to do it correctly and safely
Stormchaser32 2018-03-26 16:28:19

I loved that it gave you stories and then a question
thiel89 2018-03-26 10:58:03

I enjoyed the online class. I just hope it does not totally replace the NWS classes that are being held.

It was not too difficult and pretty enjoyable to do. I even had my son paying attention to the course.
catt129 2018-03-23 21:23:26

I enjoyed this lesson. I have never taken this type of class or a class at this site before. The site was easy to follow and use. The only issue I had, was that my computer rebooted and nothing I had done was saved. I had to start over and answer all of the questions again.
Spikeydo 2018-03-23 15:07:42

Great information. Not something to be hurried through. Requires full attention and study.
markashley 2018-03-23 15:02:19

Reasonably well done lesson, but does not clearly address some of the questions on the quiz. Certainly worthwhile though. Once completed, you'll know what to report and that personal safety takes priority.
clardabear 2018-03-22 14:15:00

Good short video clips!! I think this is better than the Class! Usually take the SkyWarn class in Texarkana.....but others that have taken it like this recomended it....A real winner!
W3RIK 2018-03-22 13:44:15

If you are interested in weather, then TAKE THIS COURSE !!
bjohnson06 2018-03-22 12:27:34

Great lesson. It could save your life one day
zachska87 2018-03-22 09:31:31

Good lesson, quiz portion was a bit strange, should provide correct answers if it thinks you missed some. After course review, I still don't know why it states that I missed some questions.
Skymind1 2018-03-21 21:15:44

This format os most helpful to m,e. Makes mr consider right and wrong options.
Thund3r 2018-03-21 19:24:27

Some of the situational clips are slightly difficult not to be distracted by, however they are informational and furthered my knowledge in weather.

needs minor improvement in how stuff is worded, etc
loradeiter 2018-03-20 18:04:13

Easy to navigate, but I still can't manage to answer one of the questions correctly based on the information provided. 2018-03-20 12:18:38

Kimbean1960 2018-03-20 12:03:31

I enjoyed the information presented in the lesson and have a greater understanding of severe weather.

What this teaches you to do is be vigilant and be ready for all weather related occurrences.
Astrogirl 2018-03-20 07:34:22

This lesson is useful even if one does not become a spotter
K5NTT 2018-03-20 01:32:44

Excellent Online Course. I Highly Recommend It.
dhagar 2018-03-19 19:33:47

Good information that reinforced the concern of safety as the foremost reason for such a program and gives a greater reason to participate as a volunteer.
Larson267 2018-03-19 18:40:47

Very informational and it’s information you can use all the time
masonbscience 2018-03-19 18:37:25

Wonderful course if you want to know more about what it takes to be a weather spotter, or just want to know more about staying safe in severe weather situations.
Sensei 2018-03-19 18:25:01

Informative lesson. Some of the quiz questions are misleading but you have the opportunity to retake the quiz.

ccoduto 2018-03-15 05:24:50

The questions in the quiz are poorly worded.
CPLSeraphim 2018-03-14 18:47:25

This is a great intro to skywarn class. I am using it as part of my training for my local ARES.
gintay2 2018-03-14 15:41:00

keithrt 2018-03-13 20:22:21

Good introduction to spotter basics.
krenee0116 2018-03-13 18:34:15

This lesson was very helpful. Although a couple of the quiz questions were answered in the lesson, the answers were not counted as correct when I feel they should have been based on the information provided. I really enjoyed it.
Drunruh 2018-03-13 14:49:30

Make sure the answers to questions are apart of the available options.
W0GUS 2018-03-13 12:13:42

This introductory course should be a "must complete" before you go to your local severe weather class organized by your local weather gurus / emergency management personnel.
Wbrinker 2018-03-12 18:45:55

E016267 2018-03-10 13:08:18

I want to be a SKYWARN spotter to warn and predict convective thunderstorms that form quickly along the North Shore of Long Island, NY. These thunderstorms contain high winds, heavy rain, thunder and lightning and move very quickly I am currently a CoCoRahs observer and have been one for about 18 months.. I am currently teaching a Weather course for the United States Power Squadrons.
Dopamine2004 2018-03-09 19:07:42

Well constructed lesson. Quiz was challenging.
andrewj_j 2018-03-09 12:55:13

Very well organized course. I recommend that everyone should review the material to improve their knowledge.
enlightest 2018-03-09 11:18:54

I thoroughly enjoyed the topic included and the preferred requirements for the safety of each and every spotter.

sylmorellc 2018-03-07 16:02:43

2018-03-07 12:10:40

Good Information
cbullard 2018-03-07 07:33:39

Our family has been a NOAA weather station for years.
TrooperGirl 2018-03-07 06:02:41

Extremely user friendly. Should be a basic requirement for all responding emergency personnel.
jpgrln 2018-03-07 04:54:48

I would like further clarification on types of weather that isn't reported and the "7" key components may be difficult to remember. An acronym for them may be helpful.
okieman98 2018-03-06 17:49:37

shows basic training very well

Great Skywarn Training
brybaker 2018-03-05 14:52:53

Very good foundational knowledge of the role of the SKYWARN spotter.
RWWhite 2018-03-05 13:43:50

I think there should be more information included on the types of storms and what to look for
tomcsmt 2018-03-05 11:59:23

Even after retaking the course, there were two questions that I could not get correct after multiple attempts. It may be due to my not understanding the question, or due to the fact that the exact wording of some of the answers may be different from the material presented in the lesson.
eversong 2018-03-05 09:59:51

Interesting facts
Hogmal 2018-03-05 08:22:56

The information in the lesson was great and easy to follow. I have learned quite a bit about being a spotter and what it takes and how much it means to the community.
bkgraef 2018-03-05 07:24:28

Great program that helps you in what to look for
fredric.smith 2018-03-05 06:47:30

texasfirewalker 2018-03-04 15:20:09

This media is nearly 7 years old, there have been significant upgrades to all types of media that a spotter may report to.

ac8to 2018-03-01 15:23:23

Good online lesson. I've done the in-person Skywarn training, but I wanted a refresher, and this served that purpose well.
jotinger 2018-03-01 12:19:57

This is a great lesson for those wanting to start volunteering in storm spotting. It is well designed and is presented very well.

Fun and Informing class
billyn 2018-02-28 13:28:32

Great training initiative to advise on the proper procedures and actions to take while storm spotting to help the general public.
creatived1 2018-02-28 10:18:39

Good overall introduction to the subject.
jr.conover 2018-02-28 08:11:46

4 stars was because this is important information for the spotter presented in a quick and useful manner. I would suggest taking this course after a course provided locally. At least in Oklahoma the local course is more thorough and provides regional guidance as well.
Nimblebee 2018-02-27 18:55:27

When it comes to learning they need to tell you what you're going to learn tell you what it is you've learned and then tell you what they told you. This way everything is Crystal Clear what you're supposed to learn. After taking this quiz and looking over the questions that I missed, there is still some confusion as to why one or the other was the best answer. I can go back and review the lesson but I feel like if improvements were made there could be no confusion to the answers.

OPPDtrainer 2018-02-19 08:14:39

Well presented information for individuals and non-emergency response personnel.
IndianaDan 2018-02-18 20:53:34

Informative course. Glad I took it. A good use of my time. Final test doesn't always agree with what I've read on other Skywarn informational pages. (Some pages suggest there IS a minimum age to be a Skywarn observer, that you SHOULD report lightning IF there are injuries.) Is ID number part of my name OR contact info? I don't know. As long as I give the number, does it matter how it is classified? Would like to see test improved.
Glewis 2018-02-18 16:49:25

markriaboy 2018-02-18 12:00:55

I would like the questions in the quiz to relate closer to the text in the course. I felt a number of the quiz questions were ambiguous and could have been answered differently.

I thought lesson subjects were very well organized. Video presentations were excellent. subjects presented in a manner that made a person stop and think carefully of possible situations one may encounter.Well done.

Very good information, not just for potential weather spotters, but for the public in general.
jkeulen 2018-02-12 17:19:18

Test questions that have ‘check all that apply’ or multiple choice without feed back don’t do anything to strengthen the test taker’s knowledge. I like to learn from my mistakes so I can be accurate in my knowledge instead of leaving me questioning my newly learned info.

As a novice, and being introduced to the Weather Spotter role this initial presentation was user friendly, and helped to open my awareness.

It was a good experience for a very basic beginning course. I would say that some of the quiz questions were either too open ended and/or confusing. All in all, a very good course describing the basics for persons who may not have any experience. 2018-01-11 18:00:05

There doesn't seem to be a correct answer to the question which weather event is not reported. I took the quiz several times varying the answers and never got it right.

wr4rr 2017-12-18 09:13:47

Portions of the lesson were vague, yet questions on the quiz were specific. Example: Snow was a reportable item, but when and what to report were never specified. The quiz asked for a specific element related to snow. In the spotter conveyance, the spotters ID was to be matched, but it became a guess, because the possible answers did not state spotter ID, so was the answer "name" or "contact" ?
JimmyDeBuque 2017-12-17 17:15:02

This course is a great pre-study opportunity for anyone. If you want more information to increase your knowledge and be a community asset when it comes to weather related events, I suggest seeking out a classroom course; Storm Spotters as well as looking for a FEMA course offering of Community Emergency Response Team (C.E.R.T.) training.

Goonky100 2017-12-04 13:27:09

I honestly found some of the quiz questions confusing. Just as an example:Which of the following is NOT a weather event that can be reported by a SKYWARN spotter?Choose all that apply.Snowfall totalsLightningThunderstormHailTornadoFloodingI tried checking none, but it wouldn't let me. Beyond that, I'm just guessing and there's no place to find the right answer. I tried all of them but was never able to get the answer right. So now I'm questioning what you taught me, and have no way to clarify.

I have joined the A.R.E.S. in my home county. We also, volunteer as spotters. This is a great step in enhancing your knowledge of what to look for and how and where to report this information to better serve your community. I recommend these courses of interest here at your level and the NWS. Community preparedness is everyones responsibility for response to disasters at home.

I took the quiz ten times trying to get a perfect score but I was unable to determine the correct series of answers for the questions with John Doe reporting downed tree limbs and power lines or the question about which weather events were not an event that can be reported.

I believe this is a very good educational process, and recommend it to any who have a desire to improve their level of awareness of the roll of a weather spotter.
nz2o 2017-11-18 12:57:50

Some of the curriculum could stand some updates, such as stats including April 27, 2011, doppler, showing where the spotter lives in relation to radar.
Rita2017 2017-11-17 14:30:36

SkyWarnVermont 2017-10-16 06:32:46

I feel this was a great way to run over the main components of being a SkyWarn spotter. Not only did it provide current information, but it also put you into a hypothetical situation and provided historical information aswel

I believe it was a good lesson and worth learning. However, even after reading through the print out lesson and the online lesson I still was unable to receive 100% on the final quiz. Specifically in regards what the Spotter ID number.
malloryjn 2017-09-21 13:27:07

This was fun yet informative at the same time. I enjoyed it!
kd2oai 2017-09-19 10:03:08

To the point, with proper information.
K4DSC 2017-09-19 09:51:24

2-3 of the questions are worded in a confusing manner. For instance, when the question asks "Which of the following are NOT...", there should be an answer option that says something like "All answers ARE...". Otherwise, leaving the answer to the question blank actually is the correct answer. This is a very unusual artifact of a multiple-choice quiz...
N7GPP 2017-09-18 12:53:18

With a question that required no answers to be checked to be correct, it is not well engineered that the "did you finish all the questions" checker flagged that right answer as being incomplete.

I'd like to see this module updated to reflect the current times. We have come a long way in 7 years (especially technologically-wise), and there are much more possibilities that we can use to help the Sky Spotter program. We have smart phones now, with all types of ways for contact such as: social media, apps, weather devices, photos, etc.
prsmith 2017-09-11 14:33:24

As good as or better than the in-person workshops. My only suggestion would be to include why some question choices are incorrect (is spotter number NOT identification? Why not?)
KarisGiuliano 2017-09-11 11:03:46

It was informational and quick. It covered the keys components to spotting and how to do it correctly.

navinsinghweather 2017-08-11 23:36:06

This lesson did an excellent job explaining the role of the Skywarn spotter, however there should be a page emphasizing what not to report in spotter reports (for example, winds < 50 mph as per spotter network guidelines).

There were a number of questions in the question pool that were barely touched upon in the material. for example which of the following weather events are not notified by skywarn was hardly covered in the online material while the safety stuff was covered multiple times.
k4old 2017-06-19 15:16:38

Found this lesson to be very interesting. Was able to stay focused.
heloskick 2017-06-18 16:28:23

The module could be a little more user friendly. Some of the quiz questions are a little confusing due to the fact that the answers vs the information is not the same.
Tim K23 2017-06-18 01:21:48

Don't over think any of this.
kf4ijb 2017-06-17 20:06:20

Very good information!

The questions were our of sync with the lessons, and the answer key did not make sense in some areas.
RayDeputy673 2017-06-14 16:47:27

I love the video content between questions.

georgial3163 2017-06-10 12:11:03

This is a very well designed test for this lesson and i enjoyed the way the Skywarn Program education has been updated since i first certified in the early 90's in Casper, WYO.
ToolTrooper 2017-06-10 08:52:28

Good background and basic responsibilities of a Spotter.
WSMcDaniel 2017-06-09 17:16:03

The format was relevant for most "average Joes."
stormlover365 2017-06-08 08:36:45

Some of the questions were kind of tricky but it was a great experience! 2017-06-07 13:19:19

trsuperstar 2017-06-06 17:53:30

Videos slow and boring.
gardencat 2017-06-05 14:11:21

I was hoping to have more information on the types of cloud formations that are considered potentially dangerous.
Brandan98 2017-06-05 08:52:34

It is a good thing to take to be a spotter.
Cwash23 2017-06-04 18:33:34

JessFerguson 2017-06-04 15:32:31

Being a rookie firefighter/first responder and now a rookie weather spotter this quiz and lesson gave me a great outline of the basics on reporting weather occurring around me and what to look for.
twralph704 2017-06-02 06:25:23

My first step in study of something that has been a life long fascination. I definitively will be back for more. People from my local NOAA office, have been extremely helpful in setting me up.

PrizeOx 2017-05-27 16:37:45

As a hearing impaired person, I was sorely disappointed at the lack of closed captions, and I have no idea why they were not included. Why not open this up to more people? Really.
keg1968 2017-05-27 07:00:40

dfens42 2017-05-26 19:01:31

Great course.
AngelMo48 2017-05-26 12:54:00

I have always been very interested in weather and how it works, and how I have help others when it comes to the safety 2017-05-26 11:29:59

As an educator, I would encourage anyone who is old enough to participate to learn how to become a weather spotter. I think the service it provides is invaluable. We let kiddos take a course for Hunter's Safety, which could save their life or the life of another, so why not teach our youth to become spotters which could potentially save their life, their families or even hundreds of others? This is a great program.
twistedlulu 2017-05-24 12:56:24

nice information for learning to keep safe during storms in general
mec535385 2017-05-24 09:27:09

Very Helpful. Gives useful information to the general public.
w2bcx 2017-05-20 17:02:17

It would be worthwhile for everyone, not just spotters to take this brief course. The biggest take away for me was the importance of personal safety. I will always bear in mind and be guided by the the ACES acronym.
Mike Keding 2017-05-18 18:01:08

Great course, but a little too general. 2017-05-17 19:30:33

I still missed a couple questions, I would like immediate correct answers to the ones I missed and why? 2017-05-15 13:51:40

The last question is vague. I would want more specific info if i am at the NWS.

kendramuncie06 2017-04-07 13:34:30

I should have 100% on the quiz, however the question in the quiz regarding to matching the text to the spotters communication is either not accurate or extremely confusing. I have taken this test multiple (emphasis on multiple) times with no success to answering this particular question right.
armckennon 2017-04-07 09:42:29

DanicaFlyte 2017-04-05 01:36:26

This is a very good lesson and teaches you a lot. I love how they give many examples and questions to each video and was a very good. However, I did already know this stuff but still was okay because it wanted us to be safety first not, a total eye watcher. Thanks the SKYWARN program and meted. Thanks!

great little info quiz i would highly reccomend researching about type of cloud and lighting.
KG5RPZ 2017-03-23 23:15:34

Good information for anyone wanting to be a Spotter
Yaya417 2017-03-23 18:06:20

I kept retaking the quiz until I got a better score and also learned along the way!
christinadcurtis 2017-03-21 22:39:53

I found this lesson very informative and interesting. I look forward to beginning a spotter to help my community
stormy13 2017-03-21 20:32:32

Great material.
ncochrane9881 2017-03-21 18:21:13

The list of required information in the official spotter report was informative.
Autumnwynd1 2017-03-21 17:36:12

I loved this course! It deepened my understanding of weather.
msstarlie 2017-03-21 14:12:26

Love the course!
mrogers53 2017-03-20 18:26:34

chasem22 2017-03-20 09:02:43

Excellent learning tool to prep people for storm spotting. The scenario in the narrative adds little pieces of the persons personal life that make it more realistic and entertaining to follow. Great job!
nh3rd 2017-03-19 21:17:04

It's pretty good for a basic understanding of the spotter role. It could use more depth but overall it serves it's function well.
shanna52 2017-03-19 13:30:01

Course was rather boring and contained a lot of common sense elements
mdewberry 2017-03-18 20:20:22

StormFinder 2017-03-18 19:50:28

this is a great training lesson. i learned a great deal of important saftey and training skills to be used out in the field.
sookiejane 2017-03-18 18:04:37

Some questions are misleading and contradict themselves.
pete_reynolds 2017-03-18 13:16:41

This is a nice introduction, or if you're like me refresher, on the basics of spotting.
Kzoo 2017-03-18 10:48:31

KC3HID 2017-03-18 10:48:20

Good course before the main basics course
sehie1975 2017-03-18 00:11:08

good lesson
Timothyb196 2017-03-17 20:02:12

There were a couple of things that were confusing to me. 1, I thought giving your spotter number was required, since in all examples the reporter gave her number. And I didn't see any weather that would not qualify as something to report. I think some refinement, to make these issues clearer would have helped.
jrmac 2017-03-17 19:10:29

Need to show the correct answers after the quiz.
ashlabee1988 2017-03-17 18:20:03

I liked it.
2017-03-16 14:57:31

Was very informative and easily understood.
lancerferguson 2017-03-16 13:15:51

The scoring results indicated I'd left some questions blank when this was not the case. Still passed so not a huge issue but kind of an odd thing to see.
W7EMP 2017-03-15 22:10:52

It was informative and I learned some new things.
skully622 2017-03-15 19:15:01

iceman1026 2017-03-15 17:00:24

Excellent introduction to weather spotting.
KE5CDR 2017-03-15 00:11:15

Information is presented very dry.
Shooz 2017-03-14 16:45:39

The only problem I had was that I did not download the course and my internet connection went out twice and the battery died once while I was taking it. But I had fun with the presentation and the information was good.
mgraczyk 2017-03-14 11:43:44

Program helps to display the important roles spotters play in aiding in public safety in various situations, not just hail, storm, and tornado events.
David1980@ 2017-03-14 10:13:18

great information
Jwrobinson1986 2017-03-14 00:56:08

The information contained in the lesson plan is very important to storm spotters

Very useful and valuable information.
511059 2017-03-12 22:28:16

I have been somewhat trained by my friends and teammates on Metro.
Hornbrook1 2017-03-12 18:51:06

I thought the teaching and testing were very understandable and knowledgeable. It is in line with my other safety training in the fact that personal safety must come first to be able to complete the task to help others.
Nnovelli 2017-03-12 15:08:49

this was a great class. I think i liked it better this years since i took in online compared to my other years of going to a in person class the last couple of years.
mcgeed6 2017-03-11 21:29:14

Great way to lean how to be a spotter. Really good program!
skipoliver 2017-03-11 18:18:09

It was a well organized, thought provoking lesson.
OMoore 2017-03-11 13:16:45

More personal accounts would be very effective.
Safety4All 2017-03-11 11:52:19

Thank y'all so very much for providing accurate, important information that will further assist in providing accurate weather information to the public. Great job!
Jaynell73 2017-03-11 10:52:06

This lesson was easy to understand. It took you step by step in every situation possible. I would highly recommend this to anybody wanting to do Storm Spotting.
DaveK 2017-03-10 09:17:26

Good information especially as it relates to reporting
acunaju 2017-03-10 08:03:00

Overall, good course.
metwin59 2017-03-10 00:36:52

The lesson provides the basics to become a safe storm watcher and the quiz reinforces the material.
N8DVU 2017-03-09 21:22:15

Rainman78 2017-03-08 20:12:44

Good exam with very useful, educational and informative info/questions for anyone interested in weather spotting
type117 2017-03-08 12:21:35

There were some things that I did not know when reviewing the lesson. I strongly advise that people read the lessons and quiz themselves before taking on the force of weather.
asmorris19 2017-03-07 20:29:59

It would be helpful to have more scenario's just to help reinforce the protocol that is used. Also now that twitter is a very common use it would be helpful to have a section on what the twitter protocol's look like. In all though the content was helpful.
tonytanner50 2017-03-07 19:43:18

Very informational
stormwatcher177 2017-03-07 16:10:37

Ramesjamsey 2017-03-06 13:03:38

solid overall lesson. certain descriptions of situations that unfolded seemed a bit corny, but the situations themselves are very serious and should be treated as such. rookie storm spotters can learn quite a bit from this. 2017-03-06 11:48:16

WJY111 2017-03-04 11:36:41

Not all pages appeared in the module - perhaps because I was using an iPad. It was infrequent but still annoying.
Coltonroady 2017-03-03 22:02:08

It was really well put together
Ellemichelle25 2017-03-02 18:25:22

Really great lesson! Learned a lot.
dharrell15 2017-03-02 08:19:01

I have had a great experience with this course and hope to become a trained spotter after just as a hobby. I would give this course a 10/10
CaplanTX 2017-03-02 00:26:42

Great course, really covers the basics of storm-spotting.
RobCarey 2017-03-01 13:27:53

Heather.Key836 2017-03-01 11:40:29

The online training has improved but the quiz has a couple questions that tricky.
ffkuvfd99 2017-03-01 10:48:04

good training
WildLatin 2017-02-28 22:39:33

Good overall introduction to the Skywarn program with important emphasis on personal safety- We are NOT 'Tornado Chasers'! Some media updating to more use of video will likely occur in the future. I found a few of the quiz questions to be based on points which were not (to me) emphasized strongly... but maybe I didn't pay close enough attention. IF you do you will likely pass- maybe score better than I did- but will surely be educated in this important area.

This is an excellent tool to boost understanding and distribution of knowledge to more potential weather spotters.
w9dba 2017-02-26 12:37:44

krnewell 2017-02-26 06:01:34

The course was made more interesting by combining written text and video.
Yostie 2017-02-26 04:30:09

Great refresher for me! Sometimes we get caught up in the drama of an event unfolding, this was a great reminder on how quickly something can happen and how to always stay safe!
dean1984 2017-02-25 10:39:19

It would be cool to do field work like track a tornadic storm in the training.
2017-02-25 07:16:38

The material presented was the same as normal training, informative enough, but somewhat repetitive and time consuming. Faster than a normal training meeting, though, since you can read at your own pace. 2017-02-24 16:31:24

Having no prior experience, I feel that this course was very helpful and informative. 2017-02-24 15:57:58

Good need to know information

roachy21113 2017-02-20 13:42:45

I just feel some of the topics could be explained beter, also with that being said I also feel the videos can be a little more informative.
langdst 2017-02-20 07:43:19

Pretty well done, as a past Firefighter in Michigan this was a great review for me to re-certify!
k5qle 2017-02-19 20:16:59

angelamargrave 2017-02-16 19:53:06

Test questions are not clear
Dragonbard 2017-02-16 10:21:23

I would add in a couple of things, how to accurately determine the size of hail, the amounts by depth, and how to measure rainfall. Just something I am suggesting. I have done it before myself, but others may not know how accurately to do this.
StormShy 2017-02-16 09:52:28

Nifty little module packed with information that wasn't terribly dumbed down or patronizing.

oscarjcortez 2017-02-15 10:29:42

shnelleyp 2017-02-13 11:41:59

Write down your quiz answers at the end! You'll receive indication of which ones you answered incorrectly, but it doesn't indicate what you answered or what the correct answers were - not helpful if your goal is to really learn this stuff.
eshults75 2017-02-13 10:56:41

very informative and easy to understand with
lawyurup 2017-02-13 10:54:40

wd4aog 2017-02-07 20:00:53

On the question about the important components of spotter's severe weather observation report, you'll need to drag and drop the answers from the right column into the correct order on the center column. When I took the quiz, there were no instructions other than to "match" them.
9y4C 2017-02-07 19:32:22

jjc4 2017-01-29 17:52:34

Good intro for beginning Skywarn volunteer.
traumaemt 2017-01-29 13:17:35

I recommend this training to other spotters that may have only taken the local spotter talks given by the NWS. It goes into more coverage of the basics of spotting, and does it in a not-so-technical way, as it would be during spotter talks.
boogerjr 2017-01-29 12:04:25

The flow of the information prior to the quiz seemed appropriate.
Bombero474 2017-01-29 10:06:46

Flows smoothly, Videos are a good length for interest and retention.
jeremy.choate 2017-01-28 15:23:15

Some of the questions are very vague. When answering some of these questions, what are suppose to be right are marked wrong. Still made a 91% first time. So this shouldn't be an overall issue.

Mike Stone 2017-01-22 11:23:41

The format was good in that there was a mix of graphic images, videos, and text. The frequent quizzes help the learner but focusing on important concepts, though not all concepts on the final quiz had been covered by the preliminary quizzes.

KK1TLS 2017-01-15 13:05:56

Good lesson but videos are a little slow. Some of the test answers seem a little ambiguous. Overall, very helpful.
NOHaver52408 2017-01-14 18:35:17

This lesson was helpful because it uses situations you could be placed in as a storm spotter to help you learn the correct actions to take. I found it very helpful.
feicuiyi 2017-01-13 19:46:58

In my opinion,it is of great use for those who want to become a skywarn spotter.however,it can not meet the need of meteorological teachers and students and just let us know the program.
amerritt79 2017-01-13 15:22:03

Easy to use, yet very informative
jtwrightjr 2017-01-11 14:47:46

Good introduction to being a spotter. Some of the information about means of communication could have been presented with a bit more clarity.
kasper73 2017-01-10 08:34:58

Great lesson for those interested in weather!
Birdbot 2017-01-10 05:08:16

The lesson was well designed and informative, I had some preconceived notions about certain scenarios that the lesson did well to correct me on. I was quite annoyed by lack of ability to access the correct answers for the questions that I answered incorrectly on the quiz. I would have liked to have seen where I went wrong, but it didn't appear that that was possible. That really should be a feature, and if it already is, it should be far more obvious.
LDMatheson 2017-01-09 12:37:00

Great training.
babydoll3133 2017-01-07 23:47:43

This lesson is good for audio-instruction of possible situations as well as the availability of multiple choice questions that are scattered throughout the lesson before you take the quiz.

it was ok
Markbachman 2016-12-11 20:49:50

I would make sure that you go through the lesson more than once. Be sure to study up!
fshaghafi 2016-12-11 15:51:12

I am using a kindle fire device and therefore unable to utilize the plugin devices. Since it is easier for me to use this than my laptop, it would have been more useful to have had the option to watch the videos prior to test taking.
Thunderstruck401 2016-12-11 13:21:00

The quiz targeted several good focal points but not a complete quiz for skywarn spotters as to majority of quiz was over primarily one objective which is to report, however I feel in order to report as a skywarn spotter its imperative that additional material in regards to visual focus on hazardous weather events/severe weather, guidelines on what to report and why, no additional scenarios needed that section is adequate unless you improve it as an actual video of a skywarn and or chaser near the area of present hazard with an indication of commentary as to things to do which could easily be obtained by request of individual uploaders contact information on YouTube there are thousands of videos that are severe weather related and could possibly be used as informational and educational purposes. Read uploaders information below any video, usually the uploader has own website in which the uploader could be contacted directly.

Solid course. Relevant to my work field.
HEAKES 2016-12-01 09:17:58

this was very informative.
jcarvell 2016-11-29 15:31:07

Not all multiple choice answers were displayed on the question about the most fatalities from a weather event.
mckee1dj 2016-11-28 13:59:55

Rather boring, did not exactly say what to look for. Just how to report it.
copperred 2016-11-27 08:51:20

Informative information for anyone who loves weather.

Even if you are not willing to become a spotter, the information would greatly benefit the common person with the safety and knowledge contained in the lesson.

Easy to navigate and understand. Good examples.

Good content and flow of info
wiseone 2016-10-19 17:25:18

Currently an active Skywarn spotter trained by my local weather service office. Found that a couple of the quiz questions were not thoroughly covered in the lesson, however the course as a whole was very good.
Carmendj 2016-10-19 05:59:32

wxcabin 2016-10-18 12:45:30

great course I think anyone wanting to become a part of skywarn should take this course and then follow up with there local NWS for a spotter class either on-line or in person.
mrtwister099 2016-10-18 11:51:10

I study it online on the NWS Skywarn page.
Turlock2A 2016-10-14 16:42:25

Would like more info on identifying various cloud types that may constitute possible weather threats.
JRReid 2016-10-13 19:03:36

It pays to pay close attention to the list given in the course. Overall I rather enjoyed the information even if the delivery method was a bit dated.
GRANT HOLCOMB 2016-10-13 18:31:30

Very basic infromation
Bekah13 2016-10-12 22:54:38

Excellent understanding on how to become a spotter!
spelliamus 2016-10-10 11:58:55

The quiz was unclear in many areas.
Ea9459$ 2016-10-09 19:47:38

it;s good to help people learn to become a storm chasers to help save lives & property 2016-10-07 00:47:21

Being a Ham Radio Op, and re-training for current spotter course, two of the questions in this quiz are known ways to relay the information, still had a hard time get the true right answers but best method is by telephone when possible, ham radio (if licensed) and internet methods,
JohnGuin 2016-10-06 09:45:00

Good information overall. I wish some of the graphics and data was updated is my only suggestion for improvement.
matgibson27 2016-10-04 19:59:02

was fun
KM4WPC 2016-10-04 07:44:53

KM4WAT 2016-09-28 19:08:15

Useful information with a high emphasis on personal safety
brandon_curd 2016-09-28 04:44:50

Very informative and well paced. 2016-09-27 10:03:58

An absolute plus. The detail is very helpful and is a good test on ones knowledge whether or not they anticipate on playing a major role. I believe these lessons can be a benefit in schools and other such organizations as well.
philipmccorkle 2016-09-26 16:40:25

Nice intro course
MarkSpisak 2016-09-26 07:05:28

I guess I'd like to be able to identify sky and cloud concerns better. Harmless versus dangerous sky conditions?
n5acf 2016-09-23 11:18:06

Very easy to follow and it's layout of the information made it easy complete in a short amount of time.
Capesjustin2644 2016-09-21 20:42:14

This was a great experiance for me. I thought it taught me every thing I needed fot the test. 2016-09-21 20:29:55

Media files could be updated to use more video instead of still photos.
Andrew M 2016-09-20 20:57:27

ryanfield 2016-09-17 07:24:13

Really enjoyed the information.
mitchella726 2016-08-28 12:35:12

The lesson was very informative. Some of the questions were based off of the information that is read, but common sense and listening also took part which helps you learn from different areas. 2016-08-04 18:57:54

I was not real familiar of what a stormwatcher should look for and pay attention to. This course has helped me get a better understanding of this.
skychaser4 2016-08-04 08:42:15

My very 1st attempt at studying anything like this. Very fascinating information.
Riddlebox11 2016-08-02 20:00:56

I learned a lot from this session
jimmylong649 2016-07-23 21:55:44

If you have already taken the basic spotter course through your local nws office, this is a good refresher.
sky marshal 2016-07-13 13:31:57

PBrown9 2016-05-05 15:05:22

This module was terrible, the speaker was monotone, and I did not learn anything. 2016-04-28 19:01:39

good introduction lesson. wish it went into more details so it could cover more areas/states
criscross 20 2016-03-22 11:43:59

Overall I did learn some things, the monotone speakers did not help for me to pay attention but a lot was common sense anyhow.The quiz was weird...maybe some of us think too hard but the way I understood the weird way the questions were brought across...not only was I confused but there is no way I should have got the score I got.I was going to retake it but I am going to give it a few my opinion for something like this there is no way a person with any common sense should need to take it more than once.I really wanted to volunteer for this but the whole set up needs to be redone and not just any old way.I guess I look at it if you are going to have a quiz it will tell you what you have learned...this one did but I was not aware you could go back and take it more than once.Which is ok just would be nice if they would clarify what kind of classes and quiz it is. It's supposed to be sent to someone to let them know you took it...I am confused as to do you take it until you ace it...then send it that a different quiz? That makes it seem like it really doesnt matter how much you have really learned.Just my 5 dollars worth...I guess you could say I was kind of disappointed...even for being a volunteer I would think you would have a better more organized system.
kylehco 2016-03-01 15:38:49

Good information in an easy to follow format. 2016-02-29 08:18:04

Great learning module ! 2016-02-10 05:44:49

Good base course with mixed media instruction. Not a waste of time.
Jerry1949 2016-02-05 16:03:29

This course is for idiots without common sense. It is a complete waste of time.
uptowngirl 2015-07-13 18:24:47

Excellent training; I am thrilled it was online. The information was presented in an easily understood manner and reinforced well. Living through Superstorm Sandy made me more aware of the critical nature of storm preparedness and awareness; I am happy to become a Spotter and serve my community.
Soldiergirl 2015-05-28 16:54:35

Fun training. The material is easy to follow and understand.
BigRed 2015-04-25 11:35:22

Ben49 2015-04-03 21:36:57

Nice presentation for all of us in severe weather and its good to know before you need it. We are all responsible for our own safety so we need to know how to be safe during weather events and this presentation does that.
034012 2015-03-31 03:49:54

Man I'm telling you dawg, this curriculum is dope yo. I mean this this aint no middle of the mall stuff right here. As a Skywarn Spotter you definetly need to know yo role, if you know what I'm saying. I'm telling you bruh, I'm ready. Bring it on, funnel cloud, BAM! Tornado, BAM! I'm spotting wall clouds all over this mug.
teddytoy 2015-03-15 14:05:24

The Program and quizzes were well presented. There could have been actual videos used instead of voice over slides... but otherwise the overall course was a good refresher. Like many others commented ... the final review should show what you got wrong and show the correct answer or give a link back to find it in the course.
sialia80 2015-03-11 20:50:52

Some of the questions on the quiz were unclear. Having written my fair share of quizzes for the college classroom, I would suggest that 3 questions in particular be rewritten. I took this quiz way too many times and I am now giving up. I know the answers, but can't seem to figure out how to answer in order to get these three questions correct. Would be helpful to know what MetEd is looking for in terms of answers. That said, the presentation of information was great.
rrosin 2015-02-15 13:22:10

It was very informative and easy to follow.
mikew1130 2015-02-14 18:59:32

The course was well presented in a format that made its points of what they wanted you to learn. The final quiz should be shown in the order of the questions asked with the correct answers so that one knows what they missed.
wingrider 2015-01-27 19:48:47

Great course, easy to follow and informative.
DonK9DAW 2015-01-04 18:03:24

I think that all Hams need to take this course. As a Ham we should want to provide people with a service about the weather that they can rely on when other types of communications may be down.
KE5JVM 2014-12-16 14:37:08

Very informative for the beginner or veteran. Specified the difference between a "chaser" verses a "spotter" as well as what is reporting criteria verses what is consider redundant. A great refresher.
yakk100 2014-11-04 22:17:08

I loved it! there are not to many online spotter classes u can take that u can trust!!! Sky warn is the best storm spotter module class I have taken so far that is anywhere accurate !!! There are several other modules to take to learn more... so hurry up and grab your test before its too late ... you never know what you might miss out here in the real storm spotting safe and remember you might just be the 1st one to witness something truly amazing!
KZ4ZZZ 2014-10-29 12:19:32

This course/test was way off in the test and subject matter... To take it for Skywarn a recertification was a waste of time. I can see why it's not counted in the State of Florida..
CrystalMGrantz 2014-10-13 09:14:15

I understood all questions very helpful in the learning of my way to a better storm spotter thank you so much for this great opportunity.
SKYWTB 2014-10-04 13:06:48

Content was well presented and interesting. However portions of the quiz questions were poorly written/confusing. The final results page was not very helpful for the student to check answers to incorrect answers -- QUOTE -Listed below are the questions from the quiz and the number correct out of the number possible for each question. The specific answers you chose are not shown. The questions were presented in a random order, so the presentation below may not match the order in which you saw the questions - UNQUOTE. It would be more of an effective learning tool if the final quiz actually shows which answers were incorrect and why.
sunrun 2014-10-03 18:51:04

Engaging format puts you in the story making decisions. Good follow up to spotter classes.
kontikiman 2014-10-01 05:53:45

Nice course. Mixed up video, information, and simple questions very well within. Learned a new skill.
DispatchairE911 2014-09-12 20:47:06

jayga3 2014-09-01 11:50:54

good course!
Sheild0913 2014-08-12 17:04:41

This course is a very good training course to learn somewhat about Tornadoes, and to be able to train for SKYWARN!
Weatherlover328 2014-08-08 02:17:17

This course is wonderful. I have taken the classroom based courses in the past and enjoyed them, but found it difficult to focus and retain the information, I recently discovered that I have Attention Deficit Disorder, which is probably why this has been the case. Taking the online course has allowed me to work at my own pace, stop when I need to and pick it back up when I feel I can concentrate again.
redwhitebluegreen 2014-06-25 20:39:12

the program is good and the quiz has answers that should be studied and though out.
echoesofriss 2014-06-08 17:56:58

As per the other reviewers, there are some questions on the quiz at the end of the module that are ambiguous per what was provided within the module. However, the presentation is highly interactive and varies from video, to mini-questions, to reading and provides necessary need-to-know information for anyone who has an interest in weather or spotting.
satchman 2014-06-01 14:13:25

Great Module. Love the interaction and details of role playing situations. Agree, this is something that everyone should know, spotter or not.
garymic13549 2014-05-17 10:45:47

A very well constructed course with additional information for locating available resources in relation to Skywarn spotting. Given in person courses are generally once or twice a year and just before a hurricane season here in South Florida, this was much easier in completing the coursework without disrupting a busy work schedule to do it..
thunder thriller 2014-04-30 13:34:35

I was going to rate this with 2 stars, but that's before I found out about all the other training modules!! This is a great course to get started as a SkyWarn Spotter!!!!!
rlkraatz 2014-04-27 14:45:56

Excellent course. I have taken this face to face with the Weather Service since 1992. This online course is very effective.
arosydove12 2014-04-01 13:28:18

I found the quiz easy though I agree the corrections should be shown.
jimhalloc 2014-03-16 11:35:50

The quiz was tricky. I would have liked to have known what was the correct answers to the questions I got wrong. The program would never let me see my certificate or save any of my results.
ltwinston 2014-03-10 19:20:16

Things Everone Should Know
vwprinsesse 2014-03-03 11:07:41

A good overview of the spotter role. Some of the multiple choice options on the quiz are not specifically addressed in the quiz so that made the quiz a little tricky. I had left some options unchecked because I did not recall learning it in the unit. Next time I'll remember, if it makes sense, it's probably right.
Sdavis01 2014-02-28 13:46:40

I learned some new things. Quiz had some tricky questions, I believe an after quiz review would be a very good learning tool.
RodBiederstedt 2014-02-27 15:35:08

Learned a few new things as well as refreshing some others.
hawley1 2014-02-25 13:47:47

I learned the important aspects of being a weather spotter. Some of the quiz questions were tricky. I would have liked an explanation of the questions I missed.
TheArmchairWeatherLady 2014-02-23 18:19:26

Great course.
bobga48 2014-02-05 10:03:21

Good course. Only comment is the quiz questions answered wrong should be explained, not just you got x out of x right.
rbusch 2014-01-28 10:39:33

Good overall presentation. A few aspects of the quiz at the end of the module are not clear to the presentation. Overall this is a good tool.
343740 2014-01-24 14:15:42

Excellent Course. Much improved over what has been available in the past from other sources. Some initial problems with download, but my problem, not Met Ed. Just follow the instructions for download and you will be OK.
MikeSatter 2014-01-20 11:31:58

Excellent course!
kg4eyg 2013-12-15 19:32:33

Great course. Comprehensive yet to the point. Looking forward to more courses!
RGHarlow 2013-11-20 08:32:16

This is Excellent training course. Basic for anyone interested in Weather Spotting. The average person can learn a lot about severe weather, safety, how to help and how to respond to a weather emergency from this simple course.
Smrbunny1 2013-11-14 07:17:21

Love this course. It is very easy to learn and I highly recommend that someone should take this.
tradewinds 2013-11-13 04:10:10

This module provides excellent fundamental guidelines and strengthens ones resolve to assists their community and become a Skywarn spotter.

excellant exactly what i needed
Auzzie2013 2013-08-03 09:24:39

Good module & interesting. A couple of the test questions were confusing. It would be good to know the correct answers in addition to what questions were missed. :)
TSwatcher1 2013-07-27 19:49:11

Video presentations, interactive questions, and module lectures allowed the training to be understood and easily tested. It is very engaging, and gives you the information in an easy to understand way. The only thing I would criticize would be some of the quiz answer choices did not really answer the quiz questions accurately. I felt I knew the material very well but was disappointed with the results. But I passed and I guess that is what counts. Thank you for making this training available! I'm already scouring the web looking for more opportunities.
CrownPrince 2013-07-22 16:33:43

Most excellent basic weather spotter instructional course. Video presentations, interactive questions, and module lectures allowed the training to be understood and easily tested.
catspj 2013-07-02 22:39:23

The module provided information that I don't remember being presented during live training sessions. It was a nice review.
lorie66 2013-06-11 16:51:29

I enjoyed the online course because I was able to complete it without having to travel. The material is very informative, educational, and easy to understand.
JLeff80 2013-06-04 18:07:38

An absolutely wonderful module! Really thorough and interesting! Even if you don't become a trained spotter, just the knowledge you gain from this quick course will help you in case of severe weather. It is very engaging, and gives you the information in an easy to understand way w/o dumbing it down.
ct wthr mn 2013-05-31 08:09:40

This course makes you want to learn more about our planets weather and ways to help others to recognize its power and how to be safer.

wyobulldog 2013-03-31 20:58:11

Lot of good info. easy to use/remember. Video audio could use something other than monotone script reading, but not a lot of it in the module. 4.5 stars
