    • ‘ At school and university, a project is a research assignment given to a student
    • which generally requires a larger amount of effort and more independent work
    • than is involved in a normal essay assignment. It requires students to
    • undertake their own fact-finding and analysis, either from library/internet
    • research or from gathering data empirically. The written report that comes from
    • the project is usually in the form of a dissertation, which will contain sections on
    • the project's inception, methods of inquiry, analysis, findings and conclusions’.
