To write a report means to explain (in a way that people can understand) how that experiment worked in the real world. Lab reports tend to have a lot in common – they’re long, complex. They’re full of graphs. And they tend to be written by people who have a lot of knowledge in their fields.

I’ve spent many years learning about both my own knowledge and that of my colleagues, as well as the knowledge of my fellow students. When I write a lab report, I want the reports I end up writing to look a lot like my colleagues’ lab reports. When I work on my lab reports, my team’s experiences matter deeply to me.
This is where what I learned as an undergraduate comes in. The reason these lab reports are so successful depends on why you’re writing them. When people think of lab reports, they think of them as one of several tools for describing your work. But in truth, you need to use a whole range of lab reports. You can’t just stick to a single approach, which is why I want all of my notes from lab to be written in full sentences and paragraphs. Each sentence and paragraph has a purpose so unique yet so similar to everyone else’s that you can actually read any of them without ever realizing you’re reading different lab reports.
In the following six lab report examples, I’ll share what I learned, starting from basic information to more advanced topics.
I need to make an example of all these notes so I can understand their format while writing them. This way everyone can start learning about the various styles of these lab notes based on their own experience.
Example 1: Basic information
In the following example, I show both a simple lab description and a description of how I used basic information in a research study. The “Basic Information” portion (the left-hand column) is about the general description of the study and how the study was conducted. The “Basic Information” portion also shows how the two of us came directly to the study. The “Inclusion Criteria” portion (the right-hand column) includes the inclusion criteria for the study. The “Inclusion Criteria” also includes all the other information required for consideration of the study in terms of “bias, relevance, and impact.” Because this portion of the lab report is so short (two sentences, if I recall correctly), I wanted to make sure each sentence would help a future student quickly understand this information.
I. Basic Information
Inclusion Criteria:
A study of a population of children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
Bias/Rationale
In the case of children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), there is no single test to diagnose the disorder. There are several different ways to diagnose this disorder in children. For a review of the criteria (which include factors such as age, gender, and IQ) see http://www.oecd-nea.orgg/takanami/index.html#selection-34.
Inclusion Criteria:
The study was performed with an intention-to-treat (ITT) approach.
Relevance
As ADHD is known to have significant social and emotional problems, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder should not be excluded from other health services.
Bias
The inclusion of ADHD as a potential
