           QUANTITY. QUALITY.

  The Research Plan is where you explain your plan for gathering the information necessary to complete the project.

Schedules tell your reader that you know approximately how much time and effort is involved at each step of the research process. They convince him or her that the project is feasible within the allotted timeframe.

 

THE QUALIFICATIONS STATEMENT

 

The Qualifications Statement should convince the audience that you have the necessary qualifications and credibility to produce an effective, well researched, and reputable report.
