This is the grading rubric for the assignment. I will be attaching the actual project in the chat room. The paper should answer these questions.
Biology 155 – Grading Criteria for Final Chronobiology Paper (100 pt. total; due week 10)

3. The general statements are expanded upon with support from the literature. (If acceptable 4 pt.)
4. The supporting statements are referenced with literature citations that are in one of two forms (Last names of authors, year of publication) or (number from literature cited section). (If acceptable 1 pt.)
5. The final sentence in the Introduction section is a statement of the hypothesis to be tested in the study. (If acceptable 1 pt.)
6. The narrative provides the average reader with a general background to the topic of circadian rhythms. (If acceptable 1 pt.)
Section Total (10 pt.) _________________________
Materials and Methods Section
1. Provides a general statement about the design of the experiment including that:

c. data were collected over a period of 1 week during the appropriate quarter and year. (If acceptable 1 pt.)
2. Mentions who the study subjects were including:
a. the sample size. (If acceptable 1 pt.)
b. the definition of “normal sleep and awakening time” for the cohort. (If acceptable 1 pt.)
3. Provides a specific statement of how to conduct each test including:
a. a description of the pulse rate measurement. (If acceptable 2 pt.)
b. a description of the motor (eye-hand) coordination test. (If acceptable 2 pt.)
c. a description of the cognitive test (adding speed). (If acceptable 2 pt.)
d. a statement about the order in which the tests were performed. (If acceptable 1 pt.)
e. a statement about how measurements were made during the rest phase. (If acceptable 1 pt.)
4. Provides a description of the data analysis. (If acceptable 2 pt.)

Results Section
1. Written Section –
a. contains a summary statement about the trends in heart rate throughout the 24 period under study. (If acceptable 2 pt.)
b. indicates the highest and lowest values for heart rate and their associated time points. (If acceptable 2 pt.)
c. contains a summary statement about the trends in eye-hand coordination throughout the 24-hour day/night period. (If acceptable 2 pt.)
d. indicates the highest and lowest values for the eye-hand coordination tests and the associated time points. (If acceptable 2 pt.)
