Collaborative project 4

As you should have seen already on the formal report assignment page, collaborative project 4 is comprised of five separate documents that are ancillary to the formal report, mostly charting or reporting progress in that larger formal report.

There is no designated "team leader" for these five documents, and who does the writing and editing for each of them is wholly up to each group. I would recommend that whoever does the primary work, others should help edit and proofread these one-to-two page documents. For more on how to structure or compose progress reports and meeting minutes, see Technical Communication chapter 18.

I've copied below the table listing the five documents and their due dates from the formal report assignment. Note that only one team member needs to submit each document to the D2L Collaborative project 4 dropbox (in PDF form).

Document (each longer than a single page) Due date
Project revision memo
(containing an updated or revised Research Methods, or "Proposal Tasks" section of your research proposal [Collaborative project 3], particularly if I suggested your rethinking of any of the proposed "tasks"; and an updated Gantt chart reflecting changes in tasks and updating actual dates for completion)
