Financial plan school project

Hello all,
I am working on a financial plan for an Investment Management class.
As part of it, I need to estimate future returns for investments. Now I know estimates vary, but where can I find "industry standard" estimates?
I've been searching the web all morning and can't seem to find anything useful. Maybe I'm searching the wrong phrase.
I'm looking for the S&P 500, EAFE index, Wilshire 4500, maybe small-mid-large cap too.

Re: Financial plan school project

Try searching on historical averages. Dunno if they would insist in charging you, but Ibbotson is the most recognized source of historical return data.
