Laboratory reports with a line and circle are "full laboratory reports" including introduction, equipment, procedure, data table, data graph, data analysis, discussion, and conclusion. Where sources are used, the sources should be cited using APA format.These reports are also marked for grammar, vocabulary, organization, and cohesion. The circle indicates the due date for the laboratory, usually one week after the laboratory. Laboratories without a line and circle usually generate only a data table, data graph, and brief data analysis. These are also due one week after the laboratory. Laboratories are analyzed using spread sheet software. The tables and graphs generated by the analysis are copied and pasted into a word processing document. The laboratory report is then completed using word processing software.
