The Proposal Assignment
Write a short, informal proposal that tells me what you want to create for Project 3. Check out the Project 3 Examples for tips and some projects that will work. A rubric for the proposal will be provided in the next week.
LENGTH: Try to keep it to four pages or less. You could be a little longer if you have included a lot of charts, graphs, or other illustrations. Bottom line: include enough details for me to understand and approve your proposal, but do not add unnecessary filler.
FILE FORMAT: You can work in any word processor, as long as you can save your file as either a *.doc, a *.docx, or a *.pdf file.
STRUCTURE: Your proposal should include the following sections:
- summary (Markel, pp. 282–283)
- introduction, which explains the findings of your research and your needs (Markel, p. 283)
- proposed tasks, that is what you propose to create for Project 3 (Markel, pp. 283–286)
- task schedule (Markel, pp. 287–289)
- evaluation techniques (Markel, p. 289 and more info & examples), which outlines three levels of work for Project 3:
- Average Work ( a C project)
- Above-Average Work (a B project)
- Excellent Work (an A project)
