InstructionsforTask 1– Report Writing Tips

Tip for report writing (recommended),

Writing a first draft

As with most other writing formats, reports should all have an introduction, a body and aconclusion.

However, many reports may have all or some of the following sections (but note that yourtrainermay want the report in a quite different structure – always check first):

Title page,which includes:

✓the title of the report (avoid long titles)✓student’s name and number✓lecturer’s name✓date of submission

Abstractor Summary:

✓is often written after the rest of the report is finished, but is usually read first✓gives us the bare facts of the report including the findings and the conclusions✓is typically very short

Table of contentsif your report is longer than a few pages. This:

✓lists the sections and sub-sections and page numbers✓provides a list of diagrams, tables and appendices (if used)

Here is an example of a Table of Contents for a report entitled How to Lobby:

❖Contents1.Introduction 12.The lobbying campaign 2a.Professional lobbyists 3b.Petitions 5c.Letters 7d.Demonstrations 93.Forming a lobby group 12a.Incorporated associations 14b.Co-operatives 15i.Objectives 16ii.Size 174.Using the media 18a.The media release 20b.Media conferences 225.Conclusion and Recommendations 25

•Introduction, which:✓gives the background✓explains the purpose, scope and methods used✓outlines the terms of reference

It should be a brief, accurate background for the body of the report

•The body, which covers the work done and what you found. It’s divided into topics which are arranged in a logical order with headings and sub-headings•Conclusioncovers the writer’s judgement based on information in the body of the report.•Recommendations:✓gives solutions to the problems✓suggests possible courses of action as a result of the conclusions, eg➢who should take action➢what should be done➢when and how it should be done

•Appendicescontain evidence which supports the report but is not essential because it’s either too long or too technical for the audience.•Bibliographyincludes all sources of information used in the report and often those used for background reading as well. (See Learning Links – Referencing for information about how to cite your sources, etc.)•Glossaryis an alphabetical list of special words, phrases and terms used in the report, accompanied by a short explanation of each. These are common in technical reports.

When you begin writing your report, you don't have to begin with the introduction and write untilyou reach the conclusion. In a report, it's often better to write parts of the body first, then theconclusions, and write the introduction last, when you're sure you know what you're introducing.

Don’t expect to produce a perfect report the first time you write. It’s usually an on-going process ofwriting and re-writing. Here are some helpful hints:

✓Use a computer – even if you’re slow, it saves time in the end.✓Write your first draft quickly to establish a ‘flow’.✓Don’t stop to fix errors – do your editing and proofreading later✓Use short, clear sentences – you can decide to join some of them in a later draft.✓Use bullet point form for important information to make it easy for the reader.
