Informal Progress Report

Some professors want informal updates on the progress of the group project. The informal progress report should be in the form of a weekly write-up that tells your instructor what progress your group has made on the assignment. These reports should contain the following information:

  • list of attendees at any group meeting that was held, a list of who missed the meeting and why, and a statement of whether the absence was excused

  • list of agenda action items

  • list of decisions made about your action items

  • status report to date for each participant

  • list of tentative action items for the next meeting

Members of the team should initial or sign off on each progress report. Include members’ names and contact information, including phone numbers and email addresses, so that your instructor can easily contact you or your group if necessary.
