Professional appearance: follow nickel rule for ALL slides except title, appropriate colors, font sizes and styles, image sizes (use cited images or diagrams to support your research- unrelated images are not appropriate)
Time: 15 minutes minimum, 18 minutes maximum
Title slide: Research title, Name, Date of Presentation
Research Question Slide
Intro/Purpose of Experiment- explain your reason for choosing the study and the goals of the study
Background slides (can be broken up into categories- prior research MUST be part of the background, do not simply provide definitions of important terms)
Hypothesis slide- at this point you should be very comfortable with your hypothesis, it should also be bulleted!
Methods slide(s)- bulleted and still follows nickel rule
Results- graphs and data tables should be full slides- you should be able to discuss the data without bullet points on that slide (but you may have a follow up slide after the graphs or data tables), all graphs and data tables must be fully explained, statistical tests must be present- be prepared to fully discuss the significance of your results
Hypothesis slide- restating your hypothesis allows your audience to fully understand how your data supports or does not support your hypothesis.
Support for hypothesis- explain how your data supports or does not support your hypothesis
Explanations for findings
Improvements/Problems with study
Adding to the field
References (only those used in the presentation)
Mentor Check- logbooks to green basket at back, pick up peer editing rubrics
Peer editing- everyone needs 3 peer edits and a self edit. Self edit must be completed outside of class.
Submit paper to turnitin.com by next class time.
A day bring study materials for APES if you would like time to study in class.
