What Are the Key Details?
You will post your progress report in Canvas by 11:59 PM on Monday, April 18.
Your progress report is worth 15 points of your overall grade for Project 4.
What Do You Need to Write?
Write a progress report that outlines
- what you have completed
- what work you still have to do
- how you plan to complete the remaining work for the project.
Include any questions or concerns you have that may affect your progress. Use headings and design to make your report easy to read and understand. Aim for 1 to 2 single-spaced pages.
Are There Examples?
Progress reports are generally structured in the same way, no matter what kind of project you are working on. Here are three examples:
- TNG Progress Report
- Shrek Progress Report
- Progress of My Research on the Evacuation of the R.M.S. Titanic
Also see pp. 302–311 in Markel for another example and additional information on writing your report, including alternate ways to organize your report and suggestions for what to include in your concluding paragraph. Pay particular attention to the notes on ethics and being honest in how you report your progress.
How Do I Turn It In?
- Note that the Assignment will not open in Canvas until April 15.
- Go to Assignments in Canvas, and choose the Progress Reports activity.
- Click the big Submit Assignment button on the upper right. You’ll see this File Upload form:
- Click the Choose File button, and navigate to your file. It must be a *.doc, *.docx, or *.pdf file.
- (Optional) There is no requirement for reflection comments, since the progress report is already a reflection on how you are doing. If you want to tell me anything about your progress report before I read it however, you can type your message comments in the Comments… box (indicated by the orange arrow in the image above).
- Click the Submit Assignment button, and your progress report will be turned in.
