Any material taken from books, the web, other students, etc. must be quoted and referenced. Here are some more details that will be considered when the lab notebook and paper are graded: A. Preparation: Did it appear that the instructions were read and understood before the measurements were started? Were pre-lab questions answered? B. Completeness of lab notebook coverage: Was enough information recorded to allow the experiment to be repeated at a later time (setup diagrams, list of equipment models, relevant settings on equipment)? Were the dominant uncertainties in raw data determined or reasonably estimated? Were steps taken to check for systematic error? C. Report Description of Theory and Method: Is any needed theoretical model properly developed, with references? Is it clear how the raw data is used to get the quantity of interest? D. Analysis and Uncertainties: Is the data analysis method clearly presented, with properly labeled and formatted plots when appropriate? Are raw uncertainties properly propagated into uncertainty in the result? E. Conclusion: Is an appropriate comparison made to (referenced) accepted values (if known)? Is there a discussion of how the discrepancy compares to the experimental uncertainty?
