Numbered list of expectations for a lab notebook used for genetic engineering at RIT. List is derived from lab notebook requirements at Eastman Kodak.
Some useful information about lab reports and lab notebooks. More conversational rather than a list of required elements.
Tools for Team Assessment:
To borrow a quote from
"Guidelines for the Implementation of Campus-Based Assessment in the State University of New York"
Assessment is not evaluation, nor is it competition. Assessment is a process, first and foremost, for understanding and improving student learning. Further, a true "culture of assessment" requires that assessment results … be shared only with appropriate stakeholders.
Assessment results should never be used to punish, publicly compare, or embarrass students, faculty, courses, programs, departments, or institutions either individually or collectively, or to make public comparisons among groups of students based on gender, race, ethnicity, or demographic.
