299/399 Course Requirements

  1. Each student must keep a journal recording meetings, progress, what was learned about the project in particular and the nature of research in general.
  2. Students must meet at least bi-monthly with their supervisors and record the dates and times of those meetings in their journals.
  3. Students will attend any demonstrations, orientations, etc., that the supervisor may require.
  4. Students will submit, to the supervisor, a two-page interim report detailing research experience before May 21 for Summer ROP and November 15 for Fall/Winter ROP. Equally, the supervisor may complete a two-page written assessment of the student's progress and discuss it with the student before the deadline for dropping courses with academic penalty. Additional written work will be required. 
  5. Altogether, written work in some form, including the journal, should constitute at least 50% of the final grade. Normally a final examination will not constitute part of the evaluation.
