The structure of the report is an important aspect of what will be assessed. The following will be taken into account:
1. Executive summary - provides a clear summary of the main findings reported (it does not simply repeat the Introduction!).
2. Introduction - introduces the report's aim and topic, what it will focus on and what will be left out.
3. Content - the body of the report:
· describes findings,
· cohesive and flows logically,
· contains accurate and relevant information, and
· uses resources relevant to the report's topic
4. Conclusion - provides a brief outline of what the report has achieved, and its limitations (it does not simply repeat the Executive Summary or Introduction).
5. Word count - is within the set word limit (excluding title page, table of contents, appendices if any and Reference List).
6. Referencing - correct use of the Harvard style for in-text citations and the formatting and inclusion of a reference list at end of report.
