For labs without prelab exercises, 100% of the grade is determined by the notebook.
For most of the labs, there is no post-lab analysis. Your writeup is your lab notebook, and you should analyze your data as you do the lab. It is helpful to divide your notebooks up into the following sections ahead of time, and fill them in as you do the experiment.
