ELEC 320, Fall 2006
Profs. Wismer & Kozick
Report Guidelines and Schedule
Students will present and/or demonstrate their
lab projects on
Monday, December 4, from 2:00 - 5:00 PM in Dana 307.
The main purpose of the lab project is for you to
learn something new about a topic of your choice
in the general area of signals and systems.
Written report: Each group is asked to submit
a brief written report that describes your project
objectives, explains the approach that you used,
and summarizes your results.
We recommend that you submit your report before final exams,
by Tuesday, December 5.
However, it is OK if you submit the report by the end of the day on
Monday, December 11.
Please limit your presentation to 10 minutes,
with demonstrations and questions included within that time.
A suggestion for organizing your presentation is
to do the following:
With 9 different presentations, the audience will not
be able to absorb a lot of technical details, so try to convey
the basic ideas of what you did.
- Clearly explain the problem that you addressed
in your project.
- Summarize the approach that you used.
- Show results, demonstration, problems encountered, etc.
The lab project will be worth 500 points (out of a total of 1,100
points for the labs).
The 500 points will be distributed and evaluated as follows.
Professors Wismer and Kozick will both attend the project
presentations and grade the written reports.
- 100 points for getting the project to work.
- 100 points for correctness and thoroughness of signal and system analysis.
- 100 points for clearly explaining the project in the oral
- 100 points for clearly explaining the project in the written report.
- 100 points for lab participation and attendance.
