Grades on Blackboard. Please also check for your individualized feedback there.

Some overall stuff to think about is below.

As Dr. Grabill said, research is hard to do well, and easy to do poorly

Almost everyone got their designs tweaked in one direction or another. And that’s okay. The best way to learn how to do research is to do it with someone with a bit more experience looking over your shoulder.

Your studies are evolving, and that’s okay, too

Many of you submitted documents that show that your thinking regarding what you are studying has shifted. Try not to get frustrated with that, but instead embrace changing your mind. Mostly what I am doing in this class, is pushing against your thinking to help you refine in and create sound studies. This process is, by necessity, messy and iterative.
