A report is nothing but a formal document on a specific topic that revolves around a piece of information, findings, or results of some investigation or research. The structure of a report consists of an introduction, methods, results, discussion and conclusion. In this article, class 10th to 12th students can get to know more information on report writing format with the examples.
What is Report Writing?
A report is essentially a formal document focused on a particular topic, encompassing information, discoveries, or outcomes derived from an investigation or research process.
A report is of two types:
- Narrative report– This provides descriptive information on an incident or event that has already occurred.
- Tabular report– This provides more statistical information on a specific analysis of an incident.
While writing a report you need to be more careful as each and every subheading of a report conveys a message. Hence it is difficult when compared to essay writing.
Report Writing Format
An effective presentation of information in a Report is crucial to capture the reader’s interest. The author or writer should have a clear understanding of the report’s structure and present the details in a sequential manner.
The structure of a report follows a format that consists of basic elements such as:
- Title of topic and table of contents
- By-line description
- Detailed description of the event
However, each and every report is unique and follows its own format, there is no specific/standard format for the report. The language used in the report should be very accurate, concise, clear, well structured, free of jargon and of uniform tense preferably past tense.
- Title of topic and table of contents
The title should be expressive and easily understandable as it signifies the entire crux of the report in a single line. It should be very clear in language and free of jargon.
This includes the name of the person writing the report, but this does not include any personal information about the reporter generally.
This provides a short and crisp description of the entire report. This should be answerable to the 5Ws questions such as What, Why, When and Where along with Who.
- Detailed Description
This can be divided into shorter paragraphs, which provide detailed information on the event that took place.
The whole crux of the report is covered shortly in conclusion. The conclusive part can be the final decision making of an incident/event or analysis statement.
