Written Project Report

Course

Capstone

Abstract

A written draft of project progress report that includes sections describing: requirements, design, implementation, testing and task plans. Student team works together to develop audience-sensitive written project progress reports. This assignment allows students to organize and record their project progress. Each student gains experience with writing/editing as a team; as they write, there will be many opportunities to clarify issues and ask questions. The task plan portion of the report will clearly delineate action items and due dates. As team writes this progress report, requirements are listed and hence a related design can be created. Oftentimes, preliminary code is also written/tested as a result of this activity. The entire activity of preparing this report assists team with moving forward to next phase of project.
