...ggrgegregrgregrg fefe A report or account is any informational work (usually of writing, speech, television, or film) made with the specific intention of relaying information or recounting certain events in a widely presentable form. Written reports are documents which present focused, salient content to a specific audience. Reports are often used to display the result of an experiment, investigation, or inquiry. The audience may be public or private, an individual or the public in general. Reports are used in government, business, education, science, and other fields. Reports use features such as graphics, images, voice, or specialized vocabulary in order to persuade that specific audience to undertake an action. One of the most common formats for presenting reports is IMRAD: Introduction, Methods, Results and Discussion. This structure is standard for the genre because it mirrors the traditional publication of scientific research and summons the ethos and credibility of that discipline. Reports are not required to follow this pattern, and may use alternative patterns like the problem-solution format. Additional elements often used to persuade readers include: headings to indicate topics, to more complex formats including charts, tables, figures, pictures, tables of contents, abstracts,and nouns summaries, appendices, footnotes, hyperlinks, and references. Some examples of reports are: scientific reports, recommendation reports, white papers, annual reports, auditor's......

Thus, preparation of a laboratory report in the form of a scientific paper is regarded as an important part of your learning. Formal laboratory reports are typically required in the sciences.

Fundamental of Business Writing

...Introdution: Fundamentals of Business Writing I. The major differences between school writing and business writing School writing, typically in the form of essays, is aimed at impressing the audience, i.e. examiners. To score high, student writers have to use fairly complicated vocabulary and sentences in their written work. Business writers, however, mainly aim to communicate information to their colleagues, clients, and other associated parties. They are relatively free to use what language that can get the business done efficiently and effectively. II. Seven steps in the process of wring 1. clarifying your aim 2. identifying your readers 3. making a general plan 4. sketching a synopsis (大纲) 5. drafting your text 6. putting the draft aside 7. revising and editing ★ Writing is a recursive and creative process. The detailed plan is not adhered to in actual writing. Writers frequently come up with ideas that are activated in the process of writing. Writers read the text they have already produced to help generate more ideas. In effect, the writing process is no linear at all but is characterized by recursive ness and creativeness. III. Three principles of business writing 1. Clarity – means setting your message across clearly. (See detailed information on page 4) 2. Consideration – good business writers take their readers’ needs, problems, and reactions to the writing into consideration. And they put......

...Biology Laboratory Report Format This format is to be used for formal laboratory reports. All reports must be typed, using 10 or 12 point font. Include your name, name of partners, date, class and section. Laboratory reports are done individually; data is shared amongst groups, not interpretations. Correct grammar and spelling are expected. All writing is done using the passive voice and the past tense. Title • Reflect on the factual content of the paper. • Use fewer than 10 words. • Describe your specific investigation. o For instance “The Effect of Road Salt on Lentil Seed Germination and Growth” rather than “Seed Experiment” Abstract Provide a brief overview of the report in your own words The abstract should contain 5 parts (as outlined in abstract rubric) o Purpose, Hypothesis, Procedure, Results, Conclusion Be specific about results - do not use phrases like "it worked". Be very careful NOT to copy text from the lab handout.

For this discussion, locate a technical document from your workplace or from home or the Internet, preferably one that might be found in your career field. Note that Figure 1-1 (page 4) provides a list of technical communication examples. Using the five goals and features of technical communication listed in the textbook (page 4), describe how the document addresses these characteristics. Then, discuss whether or not you feel the document is successful in its overall goal. Provide examples from the document to illustrate. If possible, share the document by posting a link or a PDF of the sample used.

Business Plan

...discuss Function of the report (informative or analytical) Organizational pattern (direct or indirect) Report format (Letter, memo, manuscript, printed form, digital format) Report type (information, progress, justification/recommendation, feasibility, minutes, summary) Delivery method (in person, by mail, by fax, by email, online)  Topic #1: Persuading the loan officer at a local bank to lend you money for your proposed business venture. A business plan is quite detail oriented and should be both informative and analytical (Crockett-Hoggard, 2014). Banks are number driven and risk factors are also considered when lending money. A personal loan and business loan have different underwriting guidelines. In personal lending, an individual with an 850 credit score typically gets better interest rates than someone considered higher risk at 650. A similar scenario holds true for business loans. For instance, a company with assets and receipts, at a brick-and-mortar location, is more likely to get funding than a home-based internet company. The first page of the report is a basic introduction, cover letter. The business plan Section 1.0 standard practice is to include an Executive Summary. The executive summary of a report is formal and impersonal. An Executive Summary is an overview of the most important aspects written in the business plan. It should introduce, describe the business, services and product, “but the purpose of writing an executive......

...BA 3301 Legal Environment of Business Compliance Interview and Report Assignment Associate Professor Lee Usnick, JD I. ASSIGNMENT OVERVIEW Virtually all business activities conducted in the United States are highly regulated, not only by governmental entities, but by professional entities as well. Compliance with all federal, state, and local laws and regulations is a prerequisite to the long term health and survival of a business. Equally important is a business's compliance with standards issued by the professional and accrediting bodies responsible for licensing and certification. Certain industries are more regulated than others. For example, health care, financial services, and public utilities are all highly regulated with extensive licensing and operational standards.
