These are the questions I will be asking you to use to rough draft each other's papers. Knowing what they are going to concentrate on while you are writing should help you avoid some pitfalls in crafting your first assignment.
Review 2: Proposal for Feasibility Report
writer include all the components of the proposal: Introduction, three part
Problem statement, Research Plan, Schedule, Qualifications Statement,
Does the Introduction
have clear and effective purpose and preview statement?
Does it indicate who the target audience for the feasibility report will
be (and why this audience is appropriate)?
Does the Problem
Statement include relevant and specific background information about the
company/ organization and the way things should work in its Ideal paragraph?
Does the Real paragraph discuss what has gone wrong, precisely?
Does the Consequences paragraph adequately describe the negative effects
of the problem, both current and potentially long term?
Putting yourself in the shoes of the target audience, are you convinces
that this is a problem that needs resolution and that is serious enough to
deserve a research project dedicated to finding that solution?
Does the Research
Plan detail what kinds of information will be needed to define the problem,
research solutions, and evaluation them toward an eventual recommendation?
Does the author have a solid sense of where this information may be
obtained? Does the person have
realistic access to the data? Does
the project plan sound like it will yield information that will effectively
persuade the target audience? Does
it sound feasible?
Does the 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?
Does it seem performable in the timeframe available?
Evaluate the schedule’s visual appeal, readability, and content.
6. Does the Qualifications Statement present the writer/researcher as a credible, informed individual who can effectively develop and produce this research project? Does she or he elaborate on what experience, background, skills, and resources make her or him qualified to do the research? Based on the information provided and putting yourself again in the target audience’s shoes, do you feel that this individual is prepared and qualified to give you a recommendation regarding your problem?
7. Does the Conclusion ask for authorization to proceed with the research report? Does it provide a summary of content (what is the problem and why is it necessary to address; why is this person qualified and does he or she have a reasonable plan and schedule)?
