Working with students– M.S.
M.S. students are focused on finishing the day
Present each M.S. student with a “contract”:
topic of research, one or two hypotheses and
a list of what they should work on (but be
flexible!). Don’t overwork them.
Think in terms of three semesters:
Fall: Study literature, learn techniques
Spring/summer: Get most of data
Fall: Fill in data gaps; write thesis
[Students will usually miss fall graduation deadline
and graduate in the spring semester]
