Guidelines for final reports: Be sure that your writeup contains:

There is no limit on length, but we appreciate good organization and tight, precise writing. Points off for rambling and repetition.

What to Hand In


No matter what you do, start by clearly stating the question you are trying to answer.

There are three main ways you can evaluate your system: two pertain to the system as a whole (including the UI) and the other looks at the performance of one or more submodules. (Since non of the 454 projects have a UI component, I'm cutting two of my bullets)

In all cases try to present your results graphically (instead of a big table). When creating such a graph, beware of Microsoft Office default templates which include gratuitous chart junk. Instead maximize the data/ink ration. See this discussion of data presentation principles.
