- Students continue their research project (commenced when enrolled in SMED5311 Research Project 1), under the supervision of a UWA academic staff member. Students are also expected to (1) maintain a research journal or lab book outlining the progress of their research, the procedures they are conducting, experimental conditions, changes to the study design or experimental procedures and their results; and (2) prepare a portfolio of their results and the interpretation of the data. This should include a reflective commentary of the development of this research towards preparation of a research publication.
- Students are able to (1) gather data to answer their research questions; (2) apply relevant research techniques to analyse data; (3) monitor their progress; and (4) summarise their project in a report.
- Typically this unit is assessed in the following ways: (1) draft manuscript and (2) progress report. Further information is available in the unit outline.
Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.
