Thesis Progress Tracker

Towards the end of your thesis writing endevour, it is a good idea to set up your own “Thesis Progress Tracker”. I got this suggestion from one of the workshops by ThinkWell which I attended a couple of months back. The tracker allows you to (self)ascertain how much (in terms of percentage) have you written a certain chapter and the priority to finish a certain chapter in comparison to other parts of the thesis and the due date to finalize them. I adapted the sample given by the instructors and added an extra column: “Remarks – On Further researching needed or task to be completed”. These remarks will give me some indications on what’s more is needed before the chapter is considered complete. Once you have done all this it will you a rough idea on how long it will take to finish the first draft of thesis (and maybe to start panicking he..he..he)

Happy tracking everybody 🙂
