Lab Report and Guidelines
Follow these guidelines to successfully complete your Lab in Skillsoft and complete your Lab report using the lab report templates.
1. Use the lab report template for all of your Labs. Do not turn in separate documents for each lab, or create your own document. Each lab is easily identified within the document by an appropriate section title. Note: It is a good idea to read over everything in the lab report template before performing your Labs, so that you know what to expect.
2. Make sure that you read, understand, and follow all of the steps in this week’s Lab page, as well as all Lab instructions.
3. For Labs that require screenshots, have your lab report open along with your instructions, so that you can immediately capture the screen and then paste it in your lab report before moving on to subsequent steps. In many cases, it is difficult to go back and capture an accurate screenshot after you have moved beyond the step requiring the screenshot.
4. Your screenshot request may be accompanied by an additional written requirement. If so, be sure to respond. Write in complete sentences and be complete in your answers.
5. When asked to summarize what you learned, always provide well-written, college-level paragraphs that include well-formed sentences, along with proper spelling, grammar, and punctuation. Don’t just identify the steps that you performed (we already know those); give it some thought. In your summary, include what you accomplished in the assignment or lab, what you learned from performing it, how it relates to this week’s COs and course material, and just as importantly, how you feel it will benefit you in your academic and professional career.
6. Always append your name to your lab report before saving it. Submit your completed lab report.
7. Please write your answers to each question in a different color font to make it easier for the Professor to grade.
