Reflect on Your Process

Evaluate your research process.

This evaluation is not about the final product, but how you got there. It is about the system and techniques you used--all the way from defining your topic to presenting your project.

  • How well did you do?
  • Did your research timeline work? If not, how could you have improved it?
  • If you were starting over, what would you spend more time on? What would you spend less time on?
  • How helpful were your essential questions?
  • Did your search strategy yield good results?
  • Was your project and/or presentation polished?
  • How can you do better in the future?


Record your strengths and goals for your process.


Congratulations! Now that you have learned to research, you can research to learn.
