At Nottingham, three practical write-ups are assessed per semester.

In Semester 1 the classes 3, 4 and 5 require assessed reports from the students. In the first two classes the students have not been taught about how to write a report. In class 3 they get taught this, but still have insufficient stats to understand t-tests. Therefore, the first of the assessed practicals really considers only the ability to get the information in the right structure.

In Semester 2 two of the practicals are double-classes, so assessments are made of the 3 distinct experiments (ie weeks 6, 8, 10 of the overall module).
