									 Anatomy & Physiology Lab Report Format
General Guidelines
 Every student must turn in their own lab report, even though you worked with
 Proofread your report before handing it in. Spelling and grammar errors will detract
   from your grade.
 Title each section of your report clearly
 Avoid the use of first person point of view (I, we, our)

 Cover Page
      A separate cover page on the front of the report with the following
         information :
                                      Your Name
                                      Lab Partners
                                     Date Handed in
 Introduction
      Should provide a short summary (half a page to a full page), in paragraph
         form, of the purpose(s) of the experiment
      Should include the experimental expectations (ie., hypothesis)
      Should include an explanation of why these are the expectations (ie.,
         background information)
      Should provide definitions or descriptions for any special terms used in the
 Procedure
      Should precisely describe the details of the experiment.
      If you used the lab manual’s procedures, you may say, “For procedure, please
         refer to Exercise ____: [Title of Exercise] in Human Anatomy and Physiology
         Laboratory Manual by Elaine Marieb.”
              If you changed any of the stated procedure, you must describe
                 (concisely) what you did differently
 Results
      Present the data collected in an appropriate form (such as a table or graph)
      Do not analyze the data nor form conclusions! Those go in the following
      Table columns and rows should be labeled appropriately, and titles given.
 Discussion
      Explain (ie., analyze) your data in this section. This is the most important
         section of the report!
      If you refer to other materials (your textbook, other textbooks, online sources,
         journals, etc.) to support your conclusions, you must cite the reference (use
         APA style).
                 When in doubt, cite. It is better to cite than to be caught for plagiarism.
   Summary
       Write one or two short sentences that summarize your results and the basic
         take-home message of the experiment
       Number the sentences
   Works Cited
       You must list any and all references cited in your report. The format you will
         follow is the APA format, which lists authors by last name, alphabetically.
