Link ideas across sections, especially between your introduction and discussion. The ability to clearly and effectively communicate ideas is critical to success in all fields. Therefore, spelling, grammar, punctuation, sentence and paragraph structure and vocabulary all play an important role.

Please do not answer questions or discuss methods/results here though. 1. Null hypothesis 2. Your hypothesis 3. One prediction (used to test your hypothesis) Remember, a prediction is what result(s) you expect. E.g.
