This is Report writing,we have attached some details on how to write Report as provided by teacher, please read it once before starting the assessment. Also go through marking criteria please. The detail information is Writing Skills and Writing Critically Report writing is a common way to organise and communicate information within the workplace and is often identified by as a invaluable skill to possess in a wide range of employment fields. Reports are a specific form of writing that is organised around examining a particular issue, event or finding and transmitting the information to a particular audience. A report can best be organised by following 10 key steps: Step 1: Identify the terms for of reference for the report- You may find this information clearly laid out in the Unit Learning Guide for this unit. Here you will find the rationale for assessment task, the terms of the task, or what you are asked do for the assessment task and the marking criteria which clearly identifies how your report will be assessed. For this step, you always identify who your audience will be for this topic (i.e. supervisor, committee, etc.). For university writing, you can assume that your audience will be a lecturer, tutor or marker, knowledgeable in the field of study. Step 2: Decide on the procedure- This means planning your investigation or research into the chosen topic and forming an outline as a plan for your report. Some questions to ask yourself during this step are: • What background information to the topic do I need to establish for the reader? • What information do I need to convey in this report? • What documents or publications do I need to support the information? • How will we convey the information in a logical sequence or manner? Step 3: Searching and Evaluating information – In this step you will conduct your search for literature or publications to inform your report. Be sure to evaluate all resources to ensure that you are using the most credible and up-to-date sources available on the topic. • For more information on Searching and Evaluating sources, please see the ‘Searching and Evaluating Sources’ document previously provided. Step 4: Determine the structure of your report – Reports generally have a similar structure with some key elements included in most reports. These elements include: • A title page containing the title of the document • For assessment task, please also include your name and student ID number • Executive summary • Table of contents • Introduction • Background information of the topic • Findings from the research or literature regarding the topic • Recommendations derived from the findings • Conclusion • Appendix (If applicable) Use headings and sub-headings to help guide the reader through your report.

Use the headings and sub-headings identified in the step 4 to guide the reader through the document in a logical, flowing sequence. The findings in your report are the result of the readings and observations that were derived from your investigation. Be sure to not only restate the facts identified during the investigation, but to also analyse the findings and interpret the information that you have found. When analysing and interpreting the information, ask yourself: o What is significant or important about my findings? o What do my findings suggest in regard to the topic? o What conclusions can I draw from the findings? These points will be important to discuss in your report. Be sure to include an introduction to introduce the topic to the reader and to highlight key points in the following text. Additionally, ensure that you include a conclusion to your report that adequately summarises the content previously discussed in the body of the report.

Your recommendations should be based on the conclusions that you have drawn from your findings. Be sure that the recommendations that you provide are viable options that could be acted upon in a reasonable and practical manner. Step 7: Executive Summary and Table of Contents- The reports in this unit require you to include an executive summary and table of contents. Both the executive summary and the table of contents should be located at the beginning of the report; however, you will not be able to complete these elements until after you have written you report. The Table of Contents should be free from errors and should allow the readers to quickly identify where each section of the report is located. For a brief video on how to formulate a table of contents using Word, please follow the link below.

Executive summaries are designed to allow people to quickly identify whether the document is pertinent to their needs without having to read the entire document first.
