Ruth Q.
Answer:

Students struggling with time management should focus on establishing sustainable routines that address all of their needs, not merely the academic needs. The use of scheduling and planners -- either digital or analog -- would be my first recommendation. Writing down all commitments and assessing them in order of importance creates a prioritized list of tasks to address.

Question:

When evaluating a source for use in a research-based project, what factors should a student consider?

Ruth Q.
Answer:

Source evaluation depends entirely on the project and subject in question, but in general, students must consider the currency and authority of any source they intend to use. In addition, it is critical to assess the source's bias, and search for competing points of view in order to present a balanced thesis/argument in their own work.
