Gathering I used a variety of resources and carefully selected only the information that answered my question. I was able to continually revise my search based on information I found.

Original question or focus guided my search, although I should have made revisions. I made errors in selection of references.

My product is incomplete and contains missing details and it isn't completely accurate.
