HW: Lab Report 6 (due 11/25/14 at 11:59 pm through OpenWetWare)

Grading Scheme:
10 points – Overall layout: Our Company section, grammar, style
10 points - Bayesian Statistics: How reliable is the current system (34 teams diagnosing 68 patients)?
10 points - Computer-Aided Design - TinkerCAD, your design
10 points – Feature 1: Reagents & Supplies - items like reagents (PCR mix, primer solution, SYBR Green solution, buffer, etc.), plastic tubes, glass slides, etc.
10 points – Feature 2: Hardware - PCR Machine & Fluorimeter
50 points – Peer Assessment


OVERALL LAYOUTOUR TEAM section5 pts = Original & non-offensive images; real names3 pts = More than half original images & information1 pt = All default green & white avatars; default text
Grammar & style5 pts = Composition & layout perfect throughout3 pts = Few spelling errors; images too big or small1 pt = Many errors
BAYESIAN STATISTICSOverview of the original diagnosis system5 pts = 100% complete; division of labor, error prevention, class results3 pt = has most parts, but very brief1 pts = five or fewer sentences
What Bayes statistics imply5 pts = 100% complete; Calculations 1, 2, 3, 4 discussion; sources of error3 pts = Missing one or two parts of the information2 pts = Missing three or more parts; poorly written in general
COMPUTER-AIDED DESIGNTinkerCAD5 pts = 100% complete; ~5 sentences3 pts = 2 - 4 sentences1 pt = ambiguous, short phrase
Our Design5 pts = 3 pts = 1 pt =
FEATURE 1: CONSUMABLES KIT10 pts = Thorough, easy to read; parts list of items & paragraph(s) description7 pts = Paragraph or list, not both4 pt = Very brief & ambiguous
FEATURE 2: HARDWARE10 pts = Thorough, easy to read; includes PCR & fluorimeter system7 pts = Somewhat incomplete, but good paragraphs4 pt = Very brief, fragmented, & hard to understand

Note: *Empty/ plagiarized sections or borrowed images without references receive zero points

Important Information About Grading:

  • Plagiarism: Any images that are copy-pasted from the BME 100 workbook, from another group's Wiki page, or from the internet are considered as plaigiarism. Lab reports that contain any plagiarism will receive a zero and will be reported to James Collofello, Associate Dean for Academic and Student Affairs. Internet images (that are NOT from another group's or previous class's Wiki report) may be used as long as the source is properly cited.
  • Do not wait until the last minute to finish your report. Wiki pages are time-stamped after each "save". Only the version of your page that was saved by the deadline will be graded. Any changes made after the deadline will be ignored, no exceptions. Technical problems with the Wiki website must be reported at least 10 hours before the submission deadline.


Look for your Group's lab report link in the list of links on the right. If it is red instead of blue, do not click on it!

If the link is red, type the name of your Group's lab report link exactly as shown in the following text field and click the Create Page button.

This should open up an Edit page that is pre-populated with a lab report template code.
