Each point below is numbered and these numbers may be referred to by markers when correcting your work. For example, if a marker writes 5 on your report you should look it up here. In this case the marker would be telling you to double space your work. The marker may also (optionally) indicate the severity of the problem by placing a letter next to the number. ÔAÕ means Ôvery importantÕ, ÔBÕ means ÔimportantÕ, ÔCÕ means Ôto be corrected but not importantÕ and ÔDÕ means Ôadvisory onlyÕ - e.g. 8.2 B would indicate that you should think up your own title and that doing this is (at least moderately) important. If you see PR written next to a point number that means you made the same mistake in a previous report and are being penalised more heavily for it this time. G en e r a l P o i n t s : 1) A report should tell a story. It explains why you carried out the study, what you did, what you found, and what your findings imply. As it is also a technical document you must use precise language. 2) The format given here approximates APA (American Psychological Association) style but has been adapted slightly to suit undergraduate practical reports. The definitive guide to APA style is the fourth edition of the ÒPublication Manual of the American Psychological SocietyÓ (available in the library). However, the Publication Manual is intended for people submitting articles to journals whereas we want you to (2.1) produce work that looks like the finished product. 3) This handout gives pages from a fictional article on the left of each page and notes on the right. For your reports you should not leave every second page blank! 4) Read the section on linguistic usage in the course handbook. 5) Double space your work to allow room for markers comments.
