Your final product should reflect the time you have been allocated to its completion; that is, if you have been given five weeks to complete a report then the report you submit should look like you have spent five weeks on its production.

Below are links to tools which can help you plan your time.  These calculators will take the time you have available and set mini deadlines towards its completion.  They also provide, in some cases, useful guides for the construction of oral presentations, lab reports, analytical essays etc.
