Intro and Outro thoughts
Putting discussion and thoughts onto the page
Notebook Organization [1pt] - Entries include date. Time and author name are included if appropriate. Table of Contents pointing to big things.
Notebook Integrity [2 pts] - Pages are numbered. Electronic notebooks are uploaded at the end of a session. Corrections and changes are done in a transparent way such that information is not destroyed. Incorrect information is crossed out or some electronic equivalent. When appropriate, changes are briefly explained and/or dated.
Content Organization and Clarity [3pts] – Information should be legible and organized in a way that others could follow the presentation. Descriptions are clear. Figures should include labels, titles and units where appropriate. Notation is clearly defined or obvious.
Completeness [3pts] – Sufficient details are included so that somebody else could replicate your work. This may include details such as equipment identifiers, instrument characteristics (calibration, accuracy, etc.), temperature or other important environmental conditions, and justification for assigned uncertainties.
Discussion [2pts] – Entries communicate goals, summaries, interpretations and other discussions that are meaningful to the author.
References [1pt] - References to other work, ideas and resources are noted clearly.
Can we merge any of these? How should we weight them?
