To keep members accountable we will be conducting weekly evaluations.  We are keeping contact through phone, email, and wiki.   To ensure properly cited sources we will use Word's references dialogue box as a guide.  Making sure members cite and record as much information as possible about where they information and when. 


Timetable is in the works.



May be underestimating how long the study will be

Could possibly turn into a proposal
