boards but lack experience in scientific writing. The independent or manipulated variable and the dependent or measured variable are clearly described within this section. If students use this outline along with the rubric, then all the components of a well-written lab report will be included in the submission of the project. Background Information In investigating the components of a lab report, one must first consider the purpose. According to many, a “laboratory report informs the reader of the results and conclusions as a result of experimentation.  In addition to informing the reader, a well-written lab report should enable the reader to precisely repeat the experiment”(St. Martin, 2011). The various components of a lab report help it to achieve its goals  (Pechenik, 2011). Usually, the background section is several paragraphs in length discussing and  developing major concepts that are related to the topic being investigated.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
