Summary To minimise reader resistance keep your report short, make each page attractive to the eye, use diagrams, graphs and pictures to support your information and use language easily understood by your reader. Effective planning is critical and addresses the purpose, audience, scope, and actions needed to produce the document. Remember that your document has to convince the reader—use a persuasive approach when appropriate. Prepare an outline for your document to make sure all key issues are addressed and the ideas are set out logically. Test your document on a colleague, and seek feedback. There are a number of main divisions in a report. Names do vary but the intent remains the same. 1. Introduction. Establishes the reader–writer relationship and outlines the purpose, aims and scope of the report. It also includes authorisation, terms of reference and methodology. 2. Findings. This section presents objective information—gives the facts as a basis for discussion.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
