This paper examined project writing and supervision and the quality issue. Specifically, practical steps were taken to bring people to understand research bearing in mind the threats to quality. ABC of project writing were spelt out in this paper and provoking questions that would elicit quality were raised for discussion in plenary sessions. It is concluded that both supervisors and supervisees have roles to play to ensure quality in research. They include placing demands on supervisee, plagiarism, lack of contribution of knowledge, poor literature search and choice of appropriate statistic, among others. The threats to quality in research and supervision are many but the solution comes first by seeking understanding and good relationship.
