This works as a great way to quickly, easily, and without too much debate, agree on what we should be seeing.  Because in this particular lab I’m not looking for a lot of debating discussion about what the data is.  We are able to spend our time analyzing the patterns in the data the way each group should be seeing it.  (Trying to have students draw conclusions from one set of wrong data doesn’t work too well, I’ve found that this fixes that.)
