What is the effect of different concentrations of sodium chloride NaCl (0%, 25%, 50%, 75% & 100%) on the rate of osmosis and therefore the mass and pigmentation of equally sized pieces of Beta vulgaris (beet root) ?

1. Personal Engagement it should show how this topic is somehow related to my own life or some personal insight or adaptation (8%)
2.The title of the research question is descriptive yet concise. Make sure it is a precise and grammatically correct question about a relationship between two things.Measurable dependent variable is detailed and a independent variable to be manipulated is included, exact locations, measurements and Genus species names are given.
3.Independent Variable, Dependent Variable, and Controlled Variables are given. Independent and dependent variables are expressed just as in the question. A brief description of how the independent variable is altered is included. A brief description of how the dependent variable is measured is included. Controlled variables include all significant factors with the potential to affect the dependent variable. A description of why each controlled variable must be kept constant is given.
4.A correct answer to the research question is described. The hypothesis is supported by scientific reasoning and research. A predicted relationship between the independent and dependent variables is described. The independent and dependent variables are described as in the question
5. The essay is organized into paragraphs and includes an introduction, body andconclusion. The introduction includes an observation/ story that leads to the research question. The hypothesis is stated as a scientifically justified answer to the research question. The hypothesis is justified and supported by scientific literature review. All variables relevant to the experiment are appropriately investigated. References are used where appropriate. At least 5 external sources with authors have been used and described. There is no plagiarism (this leads to a zero)
6. Introduction justifies the method as a fair test of the hypothesis. If modification of procedures are done, they are referenced. All materials are listed with details (type, amount, size, volume, concentration…). Diagrams and/or photographs clearly showing the setup of the apparatus is included. Diagrams and photographs are referenced using MLA. What was done and an explanation of why is given for each step. How the independent variable was manipulated is clearly described. How the listed controlled variables were kept controlled in the experiment is described. The use and method of random sampling is described where relevant.
7. The introduction establishes the data collected is valid for answering the research question. The reliability of the methodology is established with enough trials (5). How the dependent variable measurements are taken is precisely explained. The size of the increments between data point and why this was acceptable is explained. Use of minimum 5 repeats to calculate standard deviation for error analysis is outlinedThe sample size is at least 10 when the T-test was used. Data collection from other students or sources is clearly explained and referenced.
8. An introduction is given to establish what data was collected and why it is appropriate. Appropriate raw quantitative data is recorded in a clearly designed and drawn table. A descriptive title with the variables is given for the data table. Column headings include the quantity, units and uncertainties. Data is recorded to an appropriate degree of precision and consistency with uncertainties. How the uncertainties were determined for measurements is stated below the data table. Every data table has a paragraph describing its relevance. Qualitative data is recorded separately in the data table.
9.A short introduction and description of the data processing is included. The relevance of the data processing’s ability to answer the research question included. Calculations are carried out correctly. Calculations are included in a table of calculationsData table from appendix is copied and pasted and modified to include calculationsSample calculations are illustrated. Uncertainties are calculated and explained.
10.The dependent variable is appropriately graphed vs the independent variable. Graphs include appropriate titles with a description of the variables. Axis are labeled including units. Error bars showing the uncertainties are included on the graph. Uncertainty calculations are included below the graph and explained if not included. Maximum and minimum trend lines are drawn if appropriate. Each graph has an accompanying paragraph correctly describing the features and trends.
11.A conclusion is clearly stated. The conclusion arises from a correct interpretation of the data. Important data from the analysis is outlined and trends in the data are explained. The degree to which the data supports the hypothesis is discussed and explained. The variation in results is reported, depicting the conclusion’s strength.Scientific reasoning is employed to illustrate the validity of the relationship. The generalisability of the conclusion is discussed.
12. The apparatus’ ability to obtain relevant data is discussed. Weaknesses in the methodology are commented on. The data reliability is discussed. The quantity of the data is discussed. The precision and accuracy of the data is appreciated and described. Outliers or irregularities in the data are discussed. The uncertainties’ significance within the line of best ?t is determined. If limitations are identified as significant, improvements are proposed. Improvements address the limitations. Realistic improvements are given.
13. In-text references/citations are given (MLA format). Works Cited List with MLA formatting is included at the end of the report. Sources are ordered alphabetically by author’s last name. No spelling or grammar mistakes are present. There are easy to read headings for every section. Arial or Helvetica font size 12 font. The methodology is written in past tense with good paragraph structure
