  • Types of Lab Reports
    the samples to the company s lab A day later he receives a slip of paper with his project s number on it and the results of the lab test Since he already knows what procedures were used to test the samples he does not require a formal report In school instructors inform you of the data your lab reports should include In industry the amount of detail included in a lab report depends on who your readers are and how they will use the data Most companies have strict requirements about the types of lab reports produced Internal Lab Reports I nternal lab reports are those written for use within a company These reports are less formal than external reports because typically the reader is a fellow employee who already knows the methodology and equipment used Internal lab reports are result oriented that is they present only the results of a test and don t necessarily have a specific format External Lab Reports E xternal lab reports are those written for use outside a company These reports are more formal than internal reports because typically the reader is a client who doesn t know the methodology or equipment used

  • General Format
    of weak titles A Fatigue Experiment An Experiment to Test the Fatigue of Paper Clips by Repetitive Bending Equipment R eaders may expect and require a list of all the equipment used in a test This list includes the equipment s name as well as the equipment s number Listing your equipment ensures that you use the same piece of equipment throughout a test Check with your instructor to determine whether or not this information should be included under its own heading or with Procedures Methodology Procedures Methodologies U nder the Procedures Methodologies heading you should describe each step of the lab test You might also document your goals and the steps taken to accomplish those goals To determine which heading to use Procedures or Methodologies check with your instructor In the Procedures Methodologies report the steps including any preparations followed during a lab test You should also document your goals and the steps taken to accomplish those goals The materials and equipment you used may or may not be included here P rocedures Methodologies are extremely straightforward and typically written in the past tense Here you should not document the findings of a test that is the results of a test Instead explain exactly what you did to get your results ASTM The American Society for Testing and Materials standards should be included under the Procedures Methodology heading These standards inform readers about how materials and samples were handled before testing They also include materials properties The site below does not list standards but it describes the ASTM organization and provides contact information American Society for Testing and Materials Results U nder the results heading you should report what you found Here you may or may not include data interpretations Some readers expect interpretations or conclusions to be a separate heading Check with your instructor for what to include in your results In the results document the test s outcome s Here tell your readers what the test measured with exact data You may also include calculations or equations B e brief when writing your results If a lab has more than one finding report the findings under separate subheadings Typically in the results you present the numerical data of your findings Be sure not to include details about how you performed a lab Instead report only the outcome s For example The results of the three tests are x y and z If you are required to interpret your data here explain how you arrived at those results You should also include why any data may be incorrect such as odd occurrences during the test Conclusions U nder the conclusions heading you should comment on the outcomes of a test Here you might also speculate about the implications of the results or even about the methods used to obtain the results Some readers may not expect conclusions For example design engineers reading a report may interpret or make conclusions about results themselves As a student you may need

  • Perspectives on Lab Reports
    from the minute they were taken from the moon and brought to earth Were they exposed at all Accounting for how samples were handled tells you whether or not standard procedures were followed and provides explanations for any strange results Calibration Errors Log books are a good place to record calibration information You should always note when the last time a piece of equipment was calibrated because this is a common source of error For example your equipment hasn t been calibrated in over ten years Because of this it s off five pounds all the time You need to know this If you re on a diet you want to know that your scale is five pounds off so why wouldn t you want to know that your equipment is off Another source of error is not using the same piece of equipment every time you perform a test For example you re measuring the distance between two marks with a pair of dial clippers Midway through the test you set the clippers down If you use another pair to continue the test and that pair is off even a little bit you ve introduced a source of error Good Results Good results depend on how well you follow the lab procedures Not only do you have to produce accurate precise numbers but you also have to do a good job writing your report Describe every detail and make conclusions and observations about your results If you don t get the numbers you want write about what you did and why you think the numbers aren t what they should be It s easy to say My results are accurate but more difficult to admit that your results are not accurate Overall you should understand how the test works
