Scientific Investigation Reports

Each scientific investigation uses a consistent format that follows the scientific process. As you complete each scientific investigation, you will maintain a scientific investigation report. This report will be a document in which you will need to make predictions, record data, analyze any data collected, and form conclusions about the scientific investigation.

You will see the following terms in each scientific investigation report:

  • Title – the name of the scientific investigation
  • Introduction – any background information from the topic that you will need to know before you begin the scientific investigation
  • Objectives – identified learning goals for the scientific investigation
  • Hypothesis – a prediction that you formulate based on your prior knowledge and by reading the scientific investigation’s procedure
  • Required Simulation – information about a simulation used in a scientific investigation
  • Equipment and Materials – a list of any special equipment or materials that you will need to perform the scientific investigation
  • Procedure and Data Collection – a set of instructions provided to you so that you know how to conduct the scientific investigation; the procedure will prompt you when you need to record data
  • Data – a location for you to record your observations and measurements from the scientific investigation
  • Data Analysis – a list of questions or prompts that assist you with analyzing the data that you collect during the scientific investigation
  • Conclusion – a summary of the findings of the scientific investigation; accepts or refute any hypotheses made at the beginning of the investigation
  • Experimental Sources of Error – a list of any sources of error that may occur during the scientific investigation
