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. Can you break a larger task down into smaller items?
Measurable: Establish clear definitions to help you measure (both qualitative and quantitative) if you are reaching your goal.
Action-Oriented: What is your plan of attack? Using action verbs, describe your goals and outline specific steps you will take to accomplish your goal.
Realistic: What are some possible obstacles to this research? Set goals that you will actually be able to accomplish.
Time-Bound: You only have a certain amount of time to complete your research, so plan accordingly. Decide when you will start and finish your project.
