To: Honors College
cc: Department Chair
I have reviewed the thesis of the below-named student in the Honors College. The project meets the standards representative of studies in this field and follows the formatting guidelines provided by the Honors College. The manuscript includes the following: a clear statement of objectives of the study/hypotheses/research questions; a thorough review of literature pertaining to the project; a thorough explanation of each project step (i.e., how the student carried out the project), including details regarding relevance of the approach; and proper English, grammar and formatting and clarity and consistency in presentations, diagrams and references.
Please submit the thesis to the external reviewer for evaluation. When contacted, the student and I will address all thesis comments to ensure the final manuscript meets the standards of the Honors College, and I will then re-submit the revised manuscript to you by the deadline. If you agree the updated manuscript meets the standards of the College, please notify the student, with a courtesy copy to me. (The deadline schedule is below.)
Note to the Department Chair: If the thesis earns your approval, please send notification to the Honors College via firstname.lastname@example.org, including the student’s name and the words “chair approved” in the subject line. If revisions are needed, contact the student and thesis adviser directly with your suggestions, and inform the Honors College of the required manuscript revisions via email@example.com.
