The material should not be redistributed by the students in any circumstances. Feedback sheets If submitted on paper, all reports or essays for Group E modules must be submitted with a coversheet attached. You may wish to look at our ‘getting started’ guide. Completed reports must be submitted for marking within 2 weeks of carrying out the experiment. The report itself should be typed or word processed to a professional standard — FTRs are assessed for quality of presentation as well as technical content.
A key is needed to self-enrol on any course. Most ExAs are designed to introduce you to various measurement and test procedures in your chosen professional area, but non-technical options also exist, such as the Language ExA. Details of their scope and arrangements for submission will be announced in lectures. The object of the exercise is to enhance your technical communication skills — your ability to explain to others what you have done and to provide appropriate concise discussion. Any instruction from the lab leaders takes precedence over departmental guidelines. Lab handouts will be available and the booking sheets posted by 9am on the Wednesday just before the Michaelmas term starts Wednesday of week 0.
Please consult the ExA page for more information.
Your FTR should not exceed 10 pages including title page, diagrams, appendices etc. Students should register with the Service.
You must submit a total of two full technical reports, at least one of which must be in the Michaelmas term. The material should not be redistributed by the students in any circumstances. This gives time for it to be marked and returned to you before you write your Cude. The coversheet highlight the criteria for marking and guides the marker during the assessment of the report.
Other members of the University, staff or students, can self-enrol as observer and gain access to handouts and other documents made available to the students by the lecturers.
Do not leave your report in an open unattended tray, and do keep a copy. Allocation of these projects will be made at the end of the Michaelmas Term.
Most labs have a booking system but a few have a restricted rota or experiments that are available only for a limited period. The Michaelmas term FTR must be submitted by 4pm on Wednesday of week 9 ie the Wednesday following the end of the Michaelmas termand will be marked over the Christmas vacation and available for collection at the start of the Lent term.
During Michaelmas, the Service has cuwd a range of careers information events and there will be evening presentations from approximately organisations.
The lecturers for each module are responsible for the printing and issue of their examples papers, and for the storage of any spare copies. This access is provided to students so that they can make an informed decision regarding their course selection. These reports are based on an expansion of a module experiment, and each should involve a further 10 hours work. Some modules may substitute a written exercise or essay for the full technical report. The Lent term FTR must be submitted by 4pm on Wednesday of week 9 ie the Wednesday following the end of the Lent term and will be marked over the Easter vacation.
The report itself should be typed or word processed to a professional standard — FTRs are assessed for quality of presentation as well as technical content. If at all possible, avoid clashes between sessions for having experiments signed up and sessions for undertaking experiments.
The lab handouts will outline the technical aspects of the problem you should address when writing your lab report or FTR, and may provide guidance on the required content and structure of the report: Please remember to remove your name from lab signing sheets if you change your module choice.
Having checked that a lab is suitable, you should complete the experimental work early in the term and submit the lab report no later than week 6.
Sign-up may be on-line or sheets located in group centres.
You are reminded to keep safe all your Part IIA coursework as it must be submitted for scrutiny by the examiners at the end of the Easter Term. The object of the exercise is to enhance your technical communication skills — your ability to explain to others what you have done and to provide appropriate concise discussion.
You are required to read these handouts before lab sessions, and perform any activity required by the Lab Leader as a preparation for the lab. This short session will alert you to some of the changes you will encounter in course style, content and standards, and show you where to find guidance.
This is essential to complete the activity in the allocated time. Marked reports should be returned within 15 term days inclusive of a hand-in date or by the Friday of week 1 at the start of the following term, if there are fewer than 15 days remaining in term. Any special arrangements for module practical work will usually be described during the first module lecture.
Part II coursework is assessed not only on technical content but also on report-writing and exposition skills. Some projects have pre-requisite modules and will assume certain background knowledge.
More information may be available The main body of the text cooursework be your own work. The marked module lab report should be included as an appendix to the completed FTR.
