[Please find below a template for the laboratory report to be submitted on Monday 8thJanuary2018 by 18:00 (6 pm). The report below is based on a study looking at the effect of memorytechniques on the ability to correctly recall words. Below you will find a partially completedlab report with the methods, and results as well as the aims and hypotheses sections completefor you. There are however, two sections missing, and it is these sections that we expect youto complete in line with the teachings that we have provided you over the past few weeks inthe lectures and workshops. This template can be found in the ‘Coursework Information’ areaof the 250PY module on Moodle. Below you will find sections of the report already writtenfor you (in the blue Font colour), the sections in the black font colour are where we arelooking for you to add the missing details from your additional reading and criticalconsideration of what the research is covering. Work your way through the black sectionsreplacing the text in black with the relevant details requested (please leave the font colour asblack, so we can see what you have added. Everything that is in black will count as part ofyour word count. Once you have completed each section delete the notes which are in thebrackets and italics.Once you have completed the full report please delete this section].
Title[Give your research project a title, which clearly outlines what the study in the week17 handout was looking to study. For quantitative reports the title needs to incorporate thevariables being studied, both the independent and dependent variables. Titles should notusually exceed 12 words] (see slides 5 from the workshop 6 writing the 250PY report)
Abstract:Outline of the study[your abstract is a summary of the 4 main sections of your researchreport, you are recommended to complete this section last once you have completed the restof the report. The abstract needs to provide a clear but concise statement of the topic beingstudied, and in quantitative research needs an outline of the hypothesis, a statement of whatis predicted. The abstract should also summarise key aspects of the methods for the study sothat the reader knows what was done. The abstract should then go on to summarise thefindings of the study, and finally a statement as to what the outcome of the study means interms of its implications. Please look at slide 7 the ‘Workshop 6 Writing the 250PY report’ inthe week 6 folder for details].
