What The Sections Mean
This should have the "title of the report"
Summary of Findings
This is a concise list of everything that you found out in your
investigation in the results and any conclusions or recommendations that you made.
The best way to present this section is in a concise bullet pointed list.
This should contain the title of the section
as well as what page it is on.
You may want to use the TOC generator in word.
This is written in future tense and talks
about the process you are going to use to investigate your task
(how you are going to go about finding your information and what
you are going to do with it when you find it)
Main Body of Report
This is the knowledge or facts that you found out (results) during your
investigation. It is vital that you split this large section into smaller
sub section, each with a clear sub-heading.
This is just a list of the sources of information. A book must be
Title: Author: Publisher
a web page must have the full address
It is a good idea to keep a draft copy of this as you investigate your
topic and update it as you go along as it is often hard to remember the details at the end.
These are the sections which you may have found out that are not
specifically part of what you are investigating. The appendices may include:
- Appendix 1 - Additional Evidence Indicators
- Appendix 2 - Safe Working Practices
- Appendix 3 - Evaluation of Method
- Appendix 4 - Improvements I have made to my report
