Guide for supervisors
The supervisor gets the progress report from the student by email.
The supervisor then forwards the report to the 2nd marker.
The 2nd marker communicates his/her comments/concerns (if any)
only to the supervisor, not to the student.
(If all is fine, then just say so.)
Then the supervisor gives a brief joint feedback to the student.
(If a student hasn't provided a progress report,
it's just a bad sign that you might want to follow up on
when you meet with the student.)
