Specific: Too much territory to cover? Be sure your scope isn’t so broad or so vague that you can’t answer your research question.
Measurable: Can you locate evidence to find the answer in the time allotted for your project?
Achievable/Attainable: In terms of research and in terms of your own academic abilities & timelines - You must be able to access your sources of data (be they documents or people), and to give a full and nuanced answer to your question.
Relevant: Your research question should be meaningful in your field of study. Be engaged in research to find understanding/answers, not leading to a particular result.
Time bound: You only have a certain amount of time to complete your research, so plan accordingly.
