Preparing the report
Your task is to compose an essay to describe your ideas. Here are 3 key criteria that must be met before completing a report:
1. It must be original, unbiased and factually correct
2. It must make a significant contribution to the scholarship
3. It must be timely and accurate
All three criteria are important for your research report to be successful. Before we begin, you should read and understand the following guidelines for the preparation of an effective research report:
The first point to make is that your personal style of scholarship and approach is the most important consideration when writing your report. While any approach can be successful depending on the issue, it is important to choose a personal approach and follow it. The quality of the work you produce depends on your personal style rather than any prescribed system. The first two sentences of your report should be succinct, to the point, and factual, with no adjectives or adverbs used to describe the facts and figures. Write clearly and accurately. The length of your report, the length of the research process, and the length of time involved need to be included in the first few sentences of your report. It is usually better to have one research report that is in a single document; then you can be sure that you are able to follow it if necessary, rather than having to rewrite the same report, and having to get the information and figure back again each time. Your report has to be timely and accurate: before you send the report to the professor, before you begin using it in your course, if you will be going to the professor for further comments or if you will require changes to the document. Remember that your research report must be submitted in final form on the first day of class. Be specific in describing what you have done and why.
The second point to make to your report is factual accuracy; here are some tips:
Always write in the third person as much as possible to make your conclusions more precise.
Do not use abbreviations of a scientific or technical nature
In your conclusions, use scientific or technical figures as much as possible when possible and whenever possible also use figures presented in the text.
Write a logical conclusion, not an emotional one. In your paper, you should follow the conventional rule known as “A conclusion in writing is the end of thinking.”
Avoid excessive descriptions or generalizing arguments.
Do not use sentences such as: “Students’ behavior is influenced by both direct experiences and indirect experiences.”
Avoid using phrases such as: “Students’ behavior is influenced by the student’s social environment and the student’s attitudes, beliefs and values.”
Use terms such as: “Students’ behavior is influenced by the student’s parents’ parenting behavior (parental influence), the student’s attitudes, beliefs and values” as opposed to “students’ behavior is affected by the student’s parents’ parenting behavior (parental influence), student attitudes, beliefs and values (parental influence), the student’s attitudes, beliefs and values (parental influence), student attitudes, beliefs and values (parent
