Suddenly the date for my NSF progress report has come up. This is the first time I'm assembling a progress report for my own grant, so I am walking into this a little blind. There is little in the way of guidelines and the responses from colleagues when I've asked "how much detail do you include in your progress reports?" has scaled linearly with my perception of how much time they sink into these type of tasks.
So how much do people generally write? How much info do you include on the students supported by the grant (let's assume that not everyone who got paid off the grant was working directly on the project).
Where is the line between adequate and not quite enough?
