Instructions

For your quick reference, we have included the Rubric "Expected" description below. We ask that you include comments for each rubric category. Comments can be broad; eg, "Goals listed are not clear to this reader - please give more detail re ___". We remind you that comments should be phrased as feedback for the student to read. Significant concerns related to overall design, content, and or possible need for IRB, IACUC, or SAS not addressed by the student.

Reference documents for your convenience...

Thank you so much for taking the time to review the proposals! This is a great opportunity to help the students focus the scope and planning for their project, and we appreciate your supportive reviews. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions about the process or the review itself! ...The Capstone Leadership Team
