Phases of Conducting an
Investigatory Project…
PHASE I : THE PROPOSAL (20 points)
The proposal is a detailed written plan of how the
project will be done. It is like designing an experiment.
Since it is yet to be done, the future tense of the verb is
used.
PHASE II: THE INVESTIGATION (20 points)
As soon as your proposal is approved you
can now start investigating. Your procedure
will be your guide. Keep track of all your
observations and data by placing them on a
table. Document also your works by
photographs, videos, etc.

to organize your gathered data and present your findings.

problem. The mode of the verb is in the past
tense.
2. THE EXHIBIT (20 points)
It is a showcase of your IP mounted on a
board. It must attract viewers so that they may
get interested to your IP.
3.

THE ORAL DEFENSE (20 points)

project.
