Lab report - Sample writeups
  • Sample write-ups are provided as guides. However, it is strongly recommended not to overly rely on any single write-up. Try to look across these, and other, examples (e.g., journal articles).
  • Reports need to be independently written in order to demonstrate your achievement of the learning outcomes. If a submitted report largely replicates the wording an example write-up, it is arguably plagiarism and is much less impressive than a report which is independently written.
  • Bear in mind that none of the examples are perfect (e.g., see "red ink" and feedback comments, although not everything that can be improved has been commented on).
  • Finally, note that the requirements of the exercise are slightly different each year, so ensure the report you submit addresses the current lab report guidelines and marking criteria.

Some previous High Distinction (HD) reports:

  1. Example 2007 HD lab report (.pdf) - Marking and feedback sheet (.xls)
  2. Example 2013 HD lab report (.pdf)
  3. Example 2016 HD lab report (with qualitative analysis for G students and feedback) (.pdf)

Sample write-ups for specific analyses. Note that these samples are longer than is likely to be able to be presented in the lab report within the word count limit.

  1. Exploratory factor analysis (.docx)
  2. MLR (.doc)
  3. Some of the readings also provide examples of APA style write-ups for specific analyses.
