Abstract

The purpose of this report is to provide students with techniques in writing a clear and accurate undergraduate thesis proposal. Students commonly encounter a variety of problems in starting to write their thesis from conceptualization of their research questions, to selecting group mates, and ultimately starting to write the manuscript. To deal with these problems, students need effective preparations both psychological and technical for writing the thesis manuscript. Preparing oneself psychologically to write a thesis is an important consideration for students. This psychological preparation involves the use of effective cognitive strategies such as self-regulation. On the other hand, the preparedness in the technical writing of one’s thesis is emphasized in this workshop. Clarifications on how to arrive with research questions and the purpose of the literature review is presented. The functions in arriving with quality literature review are explained as a key in writing effectively other parts of the thesis proposal.

Keywords: thesis writing, self-regulation in research
