You did the


following well:
One issue that I
noticed is:

Guidelines *
Note: If the box for a guideline is selected, this means that there is an issue with
how you completed the guideline, or you did not complete it.
In the Introduction,
Is the hypothesis testable?
Is the hypothesis immediately evident?
In the Methods,
Are the methods complete?
Are the methods logical?
Do the methods test the hypothesis directly?
Are the independent and dependent variables explicitly stated?
Are the independent and dependent variables correct?
Is a control included when necessary?
In the Predictions,
Is the null hypothesis clearly stated?
Does the null hypothesis align with the hypothesis and methods?
Are all possible outcomes included that reject or do not reject the null hypothesis?
In the Discussion,
Are the implications of the null hypothesis being rejected or not rejected fully
discussed?
Is the proposal easy to read and understand?
Is the proposal concise?
Does each paragraph communicate a clear idea?
Does each sentence in a paragraph relate to the main idea?
Are sentences clear and concise?
Are words used correctly?
Is first person future tense used when referring to proposed research (i.e., for the
methods)?
Are the methods clearly explained?
In the Introduction and the Discussion,
Is it clear how the proposed research builds on previous research?
Is the hypothesis well-supported by natural history information and previous
research?
Is all natural history information relevant to the hypothesis?
Is the analysis of the possible results supported by published research?
Is all information from outside sources cited?
Are at least 2 peer-reviewed journal articles cited?
Is there a thorough explanation of how the trait may affect fitness?
Does the proposal demonstrate an understanding of scientific concepts?
Are scientific concepts explained correctly?

Proposal goes over the word count
limit

TOTAL GRADE
The support for the experimental design is well done.
The Discussion lacks support from literature.

* The list of guidelines is not exhaustive. There could be other features of a Proposal that are not on this list,
which could affect its grade for these criteria.

To work on this
issue, I
recommend:

Finding relevant literature to support the points made in your Discussion will
strengthen your statements. As a result, the proposal will be improved through
better support and the concepts will also be expanded more fully.

* The list of guidelines is not exhaustive. There could be other features of a Proposal that are not on this list,
which could affect its grade for these criteria.
