The report will be graded on content and format. Please see rubric below:

 

Content: 80%

 

INTRODUCTION: 25%

 

  • Introduces the topic of the experiment, with sufficient background information to exhibit a clear understanding of the material covered

RESULTS: 15%

 

  • Explains clearly and concisely, in paragraph form, data and observations (Do not explain or interpret your data, just state the results)

 

  • Displays relevant graphs/tables/diagrams (Results are always written out first then you show your graph or table, if applicable) Be sure to reference all graphs/tables/diagrams in the written portion of the RESULTS

 

 

 

DISCUSSION and CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS/APPLICATIONS 30%

 

  • Discusses how results support or fail to support hypothesis

 

  • Explains and interprets the data/observations

 

  • Explains possible sources of error

 

  • Describes how information might have practical uses in a clinical setting

  • Materials and Methods are written in paragraph form with complete sentences

 

  • Each graph/table has a descriptive title

 

  • Axes of graphs are properly labeled

 

  • Sections are properly titled

 

  • Length is 3-6 double-spaced pages

 

  • References are cited correctly in the body of the paper and in the LITERATURE CITED section
