DRAFT AND FINAL THESIS
The completed paper is submitted in electronic form incorporating all corrections and revisions to date. It includes all elements and sections required in the final research paper. The first submitted version is called a “draft” because it is subject to revision in response to comments by the professor. However, every aspect should be as clean as you can get it and should contain those aspects listed in Appendices 4 – 11 of the Capstone Manual as well as the IRB letter if applicable. It should contain no grammatical errors. When the professor’s comments are made available, the paper is revised and resubmitted as the final research paper.
