Guide on Reporting Percentage Completed:

For software development tasks:

  • use 0% if the solution is still being designed;
  • use 25% if the solution's design is completed;
  • use 50% if the solution is implemented and tested within the Ticket branch;
  • use 75% if the implementation review is complete, the Ticket branch has been merged onto the Trunk branch, and the Ticket is closed.
  • use 100% if the affected Trunk packages are tagged and released.

For level of effort tasks, use % of effort expended rounded to nearest 5%:

For other tasks, still use these increments, but apply their meaning as best as possible:

  • use 0% if the deliverable is still being designed;
  • use 25% if the deliverable's design is completed;
  • use 50% if the deliverable is implemented awaiting review/approval;
  • use 75% if the deliverable has been reviewed and in revision;
  • use 100% if the deliverable is approved and posted to appropriate repository.

Note: Please place an asterisk (*) after the percent if you updated this value in this report.
