This is the sample of the assignment:
1) introduction Template
To ensure you include all the information your reader needs before reading about your findings, you may wish to use this template to help you with your report introduction. Minor headings to appear in your final report are bolded in this template.
Opening statement: Discuss the reason this report exists (i.e. why is this report necessary and useful?)
Who requested or approved this report and when?
What is this report about? (overall topic)
What are the Purposes & Scope of this report? (Note: This is ONE minor section of your introduction.)
In the Purpose part of this section, explain the primary & secondary purposes of this report.
In the Scope part of this section, indicate the three major topic areas covered in this report.
How was this report researched? What Sources and Methods did you use?
Primary Research: Include information about the survey (or interview) completion process (i.e. description of respondents, survey designer, etc.). Also, explain why you conducted the survey. Remember to refer to your appendix in this section (survey questions and raw data).
(this section cont’d next page)
Secondary Research (minimum 3 sources): Include types of sources – i.e. journal articles, websites, books, etc. and location – i.e. LRC, Internet, etc. Also, explain why you conducted secondary research.
Remember, you need to establish yourself as a credible researcher/writer!
Report Organization: What is the structure of this report? In other words, what major topics will you discuss and in what order? Provide a “roadmap” for your reader. Use transitional words indicating order (i.e. first, second, etc.)
Begin with an introductory paragraph stating report purposes, primary and secondary audiences, and research sources and methods. (Keep in mind, some readers may want to read only this summary; therefore, tell them all details they need to know to make sense of the report and to make an informed decision as to whether or not they’ll read more of the report. This part should provide a “snapshot” of the entire report.)
In this part, for each major body section, describe your most important research findings (key findings). Clearly explain ideas. Assume your reader knows nothing about your topic. Also, remember he/she may be reading only this section of the report. (For each body paragraph in the executive summary, remember to use “3-part” paragraph structure: topic sentence, supporting details, and wrap up sentence.) For this summary, you should have one body paragraph for each major body section in your report.
Finish this summary with a concluding paragraph, in which you “wrap up”. Highlight an overall (i.e. quite broad) KEY finding from the entire report. As well, remember to end with a positive, forward-looking idea.
This part of the report should not exceed one page for a report this length (approximately 1/10 the length of the entire report).
3)checklist for the Formal Report
The formal report demonstrates my ability to
• state my purpose clearly.
• achieve my purpose for writing .
• organize and present my information in the most effective way for these readers and purposes.
• paraphrase ideas from secondary sources in order to advance my report’s purpose as well as tailor information to suit my primary & secondary readers.
• use transitional words and sentences to link ideas.
• develop body paragraphs around topic sentences (controlling idea) and make certain that all ideas in the paragraphs relate to each other.
• make certain that all paragraphs advance the report’s purpose.
• use specific examples/facts/illustrations to support generalizations.
• order supporting ideas in logical sequence.
• analyze and present my survey (and/or interview) findings, where appropriate.
• include all prefatory material ( title page, memorandum of transmittal, table of contents & executive summary)
• include an appendix with my survey (and/or interview) questions and raw data
• use talking headings for the major (1st level) headings
• choose words and style sentences effectively.
• Document survey (and/or interview) source as well as secondary sources, using Writing Services’ “APA @ Conestoga” handouts.
• write in active voice.
• write in 3rd person
• write correctly (grammar, punctuation & spelling).
• present a professional-looking, bound copy in the format assigned.
4) CONCLUSION (AND/OR RECOMMENDATIONS): PREWRITING
To ensure you include all the information your readers need to understand your key conclusions from your findings, as well as actions you are recommending to the readers, you may wish to use this template to help you with your report conclusion/recommendations section.
Divide this section of your report into as many paragraphs as you feel are necessary (remembering 3-part paragraph structure). You do not need to include minor headings in this section.
Opening Statement: Begin with a broad statement about your findings regarding your report topic. Introduce the readers to this section so that they know they will read about your key findings from each section of the report.
First major section: What did you learn about your first major topic area? Discuss at least two key findings (overall conclusions: information you didn’t know before you conducted research) from this section. Throughout the summary, link your ideas together logically by using transitional words and phrases. (Do not simply “list” ideas.)
Second major section: What did you learn about your second major topic area? Discuss at least two key findings (overall conclusions) from this section.
Third major section: What did you learn about your third major topic area? Discuss at least two key findings (overall conclusions) from this section.
Recommendations (if applicable): Recommend a specific “action plan” for your primary reader. Clearly link your recommended actions to your key findings.
Continues on next page.
Final closing sentence (or two): Sum up your key findings in a final positive statement. This final sentence is very important. It must finish off the report so that the reader does not go looking for more, and it must “match” the opening of the report so the reader feels that the purpose of the report has been fulfilled.
