A report presents information of an investigation which has been undertaken and is written in a concise, logical and objective manner.
Generally, a report contains three parts:
- Front matter
- Main text
- Back matter
This includes such material as:
Table of contents
Lists of tables and figures
Abstract (also known as synopsis or summary) which should be written to include:
- A brief statement of the scope and purpose of the report
- A brief outline of what has been done and how
- A description of the major findings
- The conclusions which have been reached
- The major recommendations which have been made.
This is the most important part of your report and is an accurate presentation of your findings. Each report has a structure of its own and is developed similarly to an essay.
The use of headings and sub-headings is usually required. They highlight the points you are making and lead the reader through the logical development of your report. Ensure that each paragraph is clearly related to the one before and represents a logical development of ideas.
Material in this section of the report usually includes:
Explanation of how the information was obtained
Statement of results
Discussion of results
Conclusion which follows logically from the evidence provided Recommendations (if required) which develop from the conclusion.
This is when you include supportive material which may impair the flow of your argument if it were to be included in the main text. For example, in the annual report of an organisation, the names of committee members could appear as an appendix.
Information located in the back matter includes:
Glossary of terminology
List of references/bibliography.
