Homework and Rough Draft

This is a reminder that homework in Chapters 7 and 8 is due in class on Friday.

In addition, a rough draft of your paper is due next Friday, April 6 at the beginning of class. My expectation for this draft is thus:

  • All elements of the paper should be in place, though not necessarily complete. This includes (but not necessarily limited to): introduction, literature review, data description, methods, results, and conclusions.
  • I fully expect the content of the paper to change over the following month, but at this point, you should be able to talk at length about what you have done, what you see, what you expect to do as we come into the final month of classes.
  • I imagine this draft will be in the 7-12 page range, but maximum of 20. I will not read or grade more than 20 pages on this or the final paper. Any parts of the paper present in pages exceeding 20 will be considered missing and your grade will fall.
  • I expect that you will have incorporated suggestions from your outline and regression write-up into your paper. Merely cutting and pasting with no changes or evolution is not a sign of progress and will negatively affect your grade.
