The first component of any report is its title page. It includes a good and concise title and student information.
Table of contents
If an abstract is not required, the table of contents page comes after the title page. This part includes a list of headings in the report along with their page numbers.
List of Illustrations
It’s the list of figures, charts, and tables used in the report. This component comes after the table of contents if required.
It saves the time of reader by concisely presenting an overview or summary of the entire report.
The next component is the introduction. It should present the background of the topic, give the context, and the purpose of the report.
Analysis and Discussion
After the introduction, the report jumps straight to the data analysis, followed by a discussion of your findings. This is the most crucial component of the report, as your discussion should be backed by evidence and strong enough to convince the reader.
The next component is the conclusion. It’s a brief overview of the report that relates the purpose or objectives of the report with its findings and presents the issues in the same order as mentioned in the report.
This is another most critical part of the report. Recommendations must be logical, actionable, and practical.
Finally, reliable academic and non-academic resources are mentioned from where you got your data and information.
In the end, any additional tables, graphs, or figures are included.
