You can Input Your "Final Report" , and then review feedback on this page.
Peer Review is a fundamental component of doing science.To help make your
projects more scientifically sound, you are being called upon
to put forward your ideas, proposals, lab packets and final report
as well as provide feedback to your peers.
Remember: Look at the outline below for details on the specifics to be included in your "final report."
Make sure it is complete! Turn in a "hard copy" in addition to
your WWW submission.
The Final Report Format
Each "Final Report" should be a minimum of 5 pages long, plus references, research time-line, data sheets, appendices, etc.
This is it folks!!
Title (with all authors)
- Purpose/Problem. What is (are) your hypothesis(es)?
- How did you decide on this project? How did you decide upon your
- What do you plan to accomplish?
- Relevance, if any. Why is this research interesting?
2. Relevance of your research question
- Literature Review--What have others done?
- How does your research relate to a larger question(s)? What contribution
will your project hopefully be able to make to the broader base
of human knowledge?
3. Materials and Methods
- What is your experimental design? Is it statistically sound? What
are the reasons behind the different parts of your experimental
design? Why are or aren't you doing certain things?
- Is your experimental design statistically sound? How do you know?
Did you ask for advice?
- How will you ensure unbiased results?
- How will you ensure that the data collected by the class can be
trusted? Will you show adequately demonstrate your data collection
methods and the importance of consistency?
- Describe important materials and how they will be used.
- Describe other methods. How will you involve the class in your
study? Be specific! Will the class be asked to process data? How?
- Have you included a Data Sheet?
- Include a specific timeline (your own and the class!) of research execution.
- Think about how best to convey your findings. What types of statistics
will be of use to you? Why?
- How will you best display your results? Graphs, tables? Think
long and hard about this!
- Include statistical tests, tables (numerical data) and figures
(graphs, drawings, etc.) when appropriate.
5. Discussion & Conclusions --Hint: This is supposed to be fun!
- Based on your background research, your own project, and analysis
of the data, explain why you got the results you did.
- Think beyond the project. How does your work fit in with what others have done? What additional questions do you have?
- What suggestions do you have for further investigation?
6. Literature Cited
- Be sure to include an impressive suite of literature citations
that directly relate to your study. This literature must include
citations from the peer reviewed journals. World Wide Web citations
are of secondary importance!
