IMPORTANT!!!! ABOUT THIS REPORT TEMPLATE PURPOSE OF TEMPLATE This document serves as a template for a possible problem analysis phase final report. It offers the instructor the advantage of ensuring appropriate and consistent content and structure for their student report. The authors have learned that many students benefit greatly by receiving and studying this report template prior to actually completing the problem analysis phase. PURPOSE OF THIS REPORT This report is typically completed within a day or two of that interview. It’s intent is to communicate the analyst’s findings upon completion of a detailed analysis of the current system. It also is intended to communicate the proposed approach to be used in continuing the project into the next phase. This report is sometimes submitted to the key user(s) immediately following a formal presentation. While the report template has several sections and many pre-written sentences and paragraph, the students should be encouraged to take appropriate liberties at modifying the report to accommodate the uniqueness of their project. IMPORTANT TEMPLATE FEATURES This report includes suggestions and directions on how the student should complete the report. These suggestions/directions appear in the report template as text that is formatted as “hidden text”. Hidden text can only be viewed by toggling the “View Hidden Text” on. This can be done in WORD by selecting Tools, Options, and then toggling the Hidden Text option. Thus, the student can read instructions on how to complete a section, subsequently turn off the instructions and begin writing that section. When a student wants to print their report, they have a choice of printing the report with or without the hidden text. They make this choice when they select File, Print, and then Print Options.

This template has been formatted for double spacing. Instructors may want student reports submitted in double-space format to allow more space for making grading comments. However, it is highly recommended that any final printed report that is to be given to the user first be formatted for single spacing. Students must be take responsibility to proof spelling, page breaks, page numbering, formatting and alignment, and other report quality issues. Finally, students should understand that this report is to be written TO THE USER(S)….not about the users, nor is it written to the Instructor. Thus, check to ensure that the report is written to the correct audience. Also, be sure that the report reflects whether you are working alone or as an individual (i.e. change “I” to “We” or vice versa). GOOD LUCK!
