Project report

The report should be written by the students together. It should be written in English and be 6-12 pages of text with a 12pt font and 2.5 cm margins (the length of the report is dependent on the topic described and the amount of work focused on e.g. an implementation that is described in the text). Figures may be included, but should not make up more than 20% of the essay.

The report should be submitted electronically in the assignment on the course web pages, preferably in pdf.

The report should present your work, in terms of background, method (experimental setup, subjects etc), results and discussion. Keep the following questions in mind:

  • What did I/we do?

  • How did I/we do it?

  • What results came out of my/our project?

  • How did I/we evaluate them?

  • What background and specific explanation do I/we need to provide so that people can understand?

  • What has been done earlier in this area? How do earlier studies compare to mine/ours?

  • Project assessment: What worked well in the project? In hindsight, what would I/we have done differently? What was the major learning outcome for me/us of the project work? Was the contribution of the team mates in accordance with the project plan? If no, how did it differ?

Requirements: In order to pass, the report should:

  • Be 6-12 pages in length, if a 12 pt font size is used.

  • Contain an Abstract giving a summary of the paper in no more than 200 words.

  • Have an Introduction that cites relevant previous work in the area and outlines why the topic is of general interest.

  • Describe clearly the work that has been performed in the project.

  • Link the theory of Sound and Interaction as presented in the course to the work performed.

  • Include a Bibliography of no less than 5 relevant scientific citations.

  • Include a personal assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of the project.
