Top 10 Examples of Title Pages for Lab Report

A lab report is a form of technical writing used to present data and describe experimental or observational work. When writing lab reports, authors must include an overview of the experiment or observation and how it was done.

A good lab report includes the title page, sometimes referred to as the cover page. It sets the tone for your work and should be done well.

What Does a Title Page Contain?

The title page contains the following information.

  • Title of experiment
  • Your name and the names of other lab partners, if any.
  • Course number and name, semesters offering the course
  • Instructor’s name
  • Date the experiment was performed.
  • Abstract (optional)
  • Keywords (optional)
  • Running head (optional)

How to Write a Title for a Lab Report

To write a good title for a lab report, follow these steps.

  • List the variables in your experiment or observation. In other words, identify what they are and how they relate to the topic of the lab report. For example: “The Relationship between Temperature and Distance Traveled.”
  • Separate your variables with dashes. For example: “The Relationship Between -Temperature and Distance Traveled.”
  • Use an active voice for your title. It will be more direct and engaging to readers.
  • Check for spelling and grammar errors. A title page with poor editing will reflect poorly on your work.
  • Keep your variables short and descriptive.
  • Make your title exciting or intriguing to read. Include something new or groundbreaking about your experiment or observation in the title to make readers want to

  • Make your title specific so that readers can understand what it is about.
  • Write the title in a concise manner so that it is easy to read.
