Document Review 3: Progress Report for Feasibility Report
writer include all the components of the progress report: Introduction, Purpose
Statement, three part Research Overview, Revised Schedule, Conclusion, and
Outline for Feasibility Report?
Does the Introduction
have clear and effective purpose and preview statement?
Is it centered on the audience (that’s me for this one)?
Does the Purpose
Statement offer an overview of the situation at the center of the writer’s
research for the feasibility report? Does it include portions of the problem statement from the
proposal, though not as detailed? Is
it enough of a reminder to the target audience of the problem to effectively
inform, but not become repetitive or monotonous to the reader?
three part Research Plan detail both what research has been completed (is
being completed) and what kinds of problems the writer has run into through the
process? Does the Research
Completed section show, in specific detail, what research has been done, what it
has yielded, and any new information that has been revealed through this
research? Does the Research in
Process section show what the author is currently working on in detail?
Does the Forecasted Research section show future research in as much
detail as is possible (including dates, names and source names)?
Does the sum of this research seem like enough to base a feasibility
report upon? As the preliminary
reader, could you suggest more avenues to explore for this feasibility report? Do all the sections combine to create the author as a
credible researcher who has a solid sense of the information available, where to
find it, and how long it takes to complete?
Does the research (and sources of it) sound like it will yield
information that will effectively persuade the target audience?
Does the Revised
Schedule give the target audience a clear and definitive sense of what steps
must be completed to effectively research the project and deliver a
recommendation? Is it adjusted from
the first tentative schedule? Does
it reflect the dates set forth in the research plan? Does the current and future research seem performable in the
timeframe available? Evaluate the
schedule’s visual appeal, readability, and content.
Does the Conclusion
ask for authorization to proceed with the research report?
Does it provide a summary of content?
clearly labeled and descriptively titled (i.e. Appendix A: Outline for
Feasibility Report)? Do they carry
the same consistent header as the other pages of the report?
Are all appendices referenced in the text?
Are their necessity explained and the information presented on them
translated for the target audience?
Is the Outline
for Feasibility Report a clear overview of the topics to be covered in the
feasibility report? Does it include
parts such as (but not limited to): Introduction, Criteria for Evaluation,
Potential Solutions, Evaluation of Solutions, Recommendations, and Conclusion?
(Though some of these may simply state, “To be determined,” they are still
parts of the final feasibility report and must be listed).
Are the parts specific but without favoring one choice out of the
possible solutions? Do all numbers
or letters of the outline start with the same part of speech in the same tense
(verbs, nouns, etc.)?
