do you require research reports from your students? If so, how extensive are they? what do you ask them to include?
I am attempting research reports for this summer and am getting push back, probably because I haven't done it before and I have no samples to show them. What I was expecting is:
(1) Broad lit review and introduction to your topic
(2) Your experimental results
(3) Discussion and conclusions
(4) 10-20 pages
(5) due on last day of summer
most important, for me, is the results section. I need a record of what they did this summer. Second, for me, is the lit review, as I feel that the students should be able to handle that. I don't expect much in the way of discussion or conclusions.
