PROJECT NAME : Honeypot
Each term project will result in a detailed 6-8 page written technical report. The project report should be neat, readable, and self-contained. Also, it should be written with the readers in mind. Any class member should be able to understand your report, and benefit from the results you obtain. Therefore, you should include adequate references and/or background materials and you should use tables, diagrams, graphs, figures, and portions of printouts to enhance readers’ comprehension of your project.
The following format is suggested. You don’t have to follow it exactly. Some sections may not be needed, or additional sections may be necessary. In all cases, please type and paginate your report!
(1) Abstract. It comes first in your report, but you write it last.
(2) Summary. Gives succinct information on the purpose, methods, results and conclusions reported.
(3) Introduction. Include background material and discuss the scope and limitations of your project.
(4) Discussion. The body of your report. This includes the methodology used. Be sure to fully describe any figures, tables or diagrams you include.
(7) Recommendations, especially for future work and unsolved problems.
(8) References (must always be included), annotated if possible.
(9) Appendices, including supporting material as needed.
The format for written reports should be in Microsoft Word or pdf.
Grading of written reports will be based upon substantive content, appropriate organization and use of allotted report size or presentation time, and effectiveness of the presentation or report. Multiple errors in grammar and spelling are unprofessional and detract from the clarity of your report or presentation and will be graded accordingly, so use a spell checker!
NOTE: Plagiarism is stealing or passing off the ideas or words of another as one’s own — using material without crediting the source. This is prohibited behavior and will not be tolerated. Take the time to properly cite material written by someone else — include references, put verbatim quotes in quotation marks, and do not paraphrase excessively.
