Objectives: (3-5 sentences) First sentence: To determine the effects of Factor A and
Factor B on response variable. Next sentences in whatever order you deem
appropriate: define the variables (Factors and response) if they are not obvious. Give
levels of the factors. Tell me why you think the response variable will (might) be
different for different levels of Factor A. Ditto for Factor B. State your hypothesis about
these effects, or explicitly state that you don’t know which level of the factor will result
in higher values of the response. Make sure to give me a mental picture of this
experiment so I can understand what you’re doing. If there is a lot of jargon related to
your field, please explain it so that a lay person (that’s me!) can understand it. Don’t
worry if this is a long paragraph.
