BTEC HIGHER NATIONAL and NATIONAL PROGRAMMES.
This report booklet is to be used for any practical laboratory/workshop assessment carried out as part of your coursework in Materials Engineering.
The report is available as hard copy for writing out by hand. It is also available in electronic form should the student prefer to word process the assignment. All parts of this workbook MUST be completed by the student, including the Bibliography and Reference section.
Whilst it is important to carry out any experimental work methodically and as accurately as possible and present it in an acceptable manner, it is your DISCUSSION of the results obtained and your CONCLUSION that carries the greatest amount of marks. This twelve page booklet should allow a practical laboratory session to be written up fully. However, supplementary pages are available from your tutor or via the college intranet facility (Blackboard) should extra pages be needed. These should be submitted with this booklet.
Finally, the completed report MUST be submitted within the deadline given by your tutor along with a student feedback sheet, in accordance with departmental policy.
