Paper Format Minimum requirements for the Paper are as follows: • Paper shall consist of no less than 8 pages and more than 12 pages of double-spaced text using 12-point type. The type shall be clearly legible. • All exhibits, tables, figures, charts, appendices, etc., will not count towards the 12-page text maximum. • Any text beyond the 12-page limit will not be read, and you will be penalized for exceeding the maximum length. • Paper must be typed/word-processed on one-side/both-sides of letter-sized bond paper only. • Paper shall have one-inch top, bottom, right, and left margins. • Paper shall include title page including topic, table of contents, objectives, introduction, body of paper, conclusions, and list of specific references. • All exhibits shall be clearly labeled and sources clearly cited. • Number all pages consecutively in the upper right hand corner. • Special binding is not necessary. However, it needs to be stapled. • You are requested to avoid acronyms, jargon and use of personal pronouns in your writing. • Each student must write an individual paper (no group papers). References For simplicity and uniformity, the Transportation Research Board (TRB) procedures for citing references have been adopted for use in CE 222. Please follow these procedures: • The reference list shall include only those references cited in the text; number them in the reference list in the order they are first cited in the text. • Denote a reference at the appropriate place in the text by numeral in parentheses, e.g., (1), (2), (3), etc. • Do not repeat a reference in the list. If a reference is cited more than one time in the text, repeat the number first assigned to the reference. • The following are some examples of the basic style for references: Sample – TRB Publications: V. Zahavi and J.M. Ryan. Stability of Travel Over Time. In Transportation Research Record 750, TRB, National Research Council, Washington, D.C., 1980, pp. 70-75. Sample – Book: D. Shinar. Psychology on the Road: The Human Factor on Traffic Safety. John Wiley and Sons, Inc., New York, 1978. Sample – Periodical: J.K. Jolliffe and T.P. Hutchison. A Behavioral Explanation of the Association Between Bus and Passenger Arrivals at a Bus Stop (in Japanese). Transportation Science, Vol. 9, No. 3, May 1975, pp. 248-282. Sample – Government Report: B.J. Dempsey. Climatic Effects of Airport Pavement Systems: State of the Art. Report CE 222 Fall 2013 2 of 3 DOT2DRD-75-196. FHWA. U.S. Department of Transportation, 1976. Paper Evaluation You will be evaluated on your paper as follows: • Introduction/Background 10% • Objectives 10% • Body 30% • Conclusions/Recommendations/Perspective 20% • Language/Style 10% • Overall Impression/Originality 20% Late paper submittal will not be accepted. The papers are all due at the beginning of class on November 5, 2013. Paper Presentation Attendance and Grading You are required to attend all paper presentations. You will not be graded on your individual presentation perse. However, you will be penalized for not attending the paper presentations of all students. The presentation periods should be viewed as an opportunity to gain experience in making a professional presentation in a supportive environment, among your peers, and an opportunity to gain more insight into a variety of transportation topics. Delivery The primary contributors to an effective presentation are (a) technical content, (b) visual aids, and (c) skills of the speaker. Remember that a presentation may (should) differ from the printed-paper and that the presentation gives the author an opportunity to discuss and emphasize highlights of the work, which may not be possible to do in the printed version. It is recommended that you think towards structuring you presentation as follows: • Title • Objectives • Outline of Presentation • Methodology • Body • Summary • Conclusions • Perspectives Do not read the paper or presentation. It is recommended that you practice to become familiar with your presentation so you can speak from memory or notes. Concentrate on your delivery. Speak clearly and at a pace somewhat slower than normal conversation. Avoid a monotone. CE 222 Fall 2013 3 of 3 Timing Your presentation will be limited to 10 minutes, with 5 additional minutes for questions. Ten minutes is not a long time. In fact, you will be surprised when your 10 minutes are up! It is suggested that you practice your talk beforehand, keeping track of elapsed time. Recognize that actual presentations usually take longer than rehearsals. Help your audience by not exceeding your allotted speaking time. Visual Aids Visual aids are always an effective tool for communicating your ideas quickly, and therefore are recommended. A computer and projector will be available. A maximum of one or two visuals should be used per minute of presentation.
