Number your steps, include diagrams. Makes the ES's job a lot easier.

Also, something that can trip up the supervisors when they are grading it are the repeated steps...make sure that you say something along the lines of "repeat steps (number) - (number) an x amount of times." Also say of the altercations you will make on those repeats (the IV changes what you are doing slightly...). That's mostly where we had trouble on the procedure. Oh, and be as specific as possible. The graders need to absolutely be able to understand everything you are doing, so try and eliminate jargon.

Some of that was probably blatantly obvious, but I'm just throwing things out there. Hope it helps, if it's not too late.

Chalker, in general, how much of an impact is not completing a part of the experiment? We may or may not have not gotten to statistics at nats.
