As an ongoing attempt to improve the processes of publishing intern logs, Constantine, Kathy and I have began working on using SMART goals as an assignment request template. The above is a first attempt to see how to implicate the SMART format to make sure that assignments are clear and efficiently report their purpose to a reader before that reader would begin reading the actual assignment. This post specifically is taking a look back at the last 5 assignments given to me, and making sure that there is a way for log readers and collaborators to understand what was being assigned. This post format is still a work in progress, but it was important to post this list in order for collaborators to have a clear understanding of the logs they are reviewing in order to move forward with future tasks.

*Working Familiarity includes having read every document, and while not having memorized the entirety of the information, the reader is aware of all presented information and would be able to find desired info if it needed to be sourced.
