A progress report is intended to communicate the status of an ongoing project. A supervisor might request a progress report so that she can determine whether a project is on schedule and on budget. She might also need to report information up the chain of command to her own supervisors. A progress report is an opportunity not only to share information but also to asses a project in progress and make adjustments. Those adjustments might be recommended by the project author or by the supervisor. In the case of this course, the progress report is intended to be an opportunity for me to see how well you understand the Proposal assignment and where you might need some guidance to finish strong. While your report should be short (no longer than one page), it should include specific information. Don’t just state “I wrote the Introduction.” Instead, write a short paragraph that explains to me the current situation as you understand it so that I can better evaluate whether you are on the track to succeed.
