AP Biology Lab Revision Guidelines

So, your lab report grade wasn’t what you wanted it to be.  Dry your eyes.  These things happen.  Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and follow the below procedure to improve your grade.

If you’re going to do this, you’re going to do it all the way.  Don’t take half-measures (or at least don’t be surprised if you don’t get any credit returned if you do).

  1. Access the lab, and listen to/read all the feedback that I have left you.
  2. Make a list of all the things that I indicated that you should address.  
  3. Address them or not, as you see fit.
  4. Make a new section at the beginning of your lab report (above your name and the title).  Call it “Notes on Revisions.”
  5. In this section, put every piece of feedback from your list in #2.  Below each one write a well developed response explaining either what you did in your lab report to address the particular item, or why you chose not to address the item.

That’s it.  

Successful completion of lab revisions will entitle participating students to up to all of the credit that was lost on first submission (though note that “up to all” ≤ “all”).
