Abstract Title: Laboratory Assessment: Strategies that Build Useful Skills
Abstract: Traditional laboratories are assessed primarily with lab reports.     However, lab report writing is not a skill that is particularly needed in working physicists!     We describe an assessment system that fosters 1) excellence in laboratory notebook keeping  2) abstract writing and 3) journal-style written presentations.    This assessment schema has provided ample information for the laboratory instructor, while helping students develop skills that they can really use.    It has been effective in several sophomore and junior level laboratory courses.
