i didn’t do this but i think a diary is a great way to keep track of progress. My friends had an excel sheet where they had columns in the table for a date, what they hoped to achieve during the lesson or period they did the epq that day, what they actually achieved, what they’ll do next time and what they learnt. Idk i think it’s something like that but I used a gantt chart which i found confusing (idk how to describe what it is so you’re better off searching it up). Ive also heard of a PERTT chart being used but again, i’m not sure since i didn’t use it. .

You could even create a website or “blog” if you’re really creative. But only problem is, it’ll show the actual dates that you’ve done whatever you’ve done, so if you do end up doing all your work in the last week but date it back in a previous month, they’ll know😭 (that sounds confusing)

In terms of evaluating sources, I did it on a literature review (so had to note down the author, date created, type of source, whether it was reliable and why, whether it was valid and why). It’d be good to ensure you know the meaning of reliable and valid so you know what to look for. You could even use the CRAAP/CAARP method.

Sorry i feel like i went on, hope this is somewhat helpful. good luck!!! my biggest regret for EPQ was that i didn’t KEEP UP WITH THE WORK. I ended up doing a lot of my work all in the week it was due which was NOT a good time😭
