How to write a report

Report text, illustrations and tables


The main text of the report should be:

  1. Informative.
  2. Meaningful.
  3. Contain all points and answers to the task.
  4. Without fail, in the conclusion on the points, conclusions on the work must be presented. So it will be easier for the reviewer to evaluate the student's work and his contribution.
  5. If necessary, include explanatory drawings, diagrams, drawings, formulas, graphs, etc. With a relatively small size, when they do not occupy more than 50% of the page, they are inserted directly into the text after their first mention. They must have an accompanying inscription, for example - “Figure 1 - Figure Title”, while the numbering of the figures corresponds to the numbering of the section or subsection. Drawings, diagrams, diagrams, drawings are signed at the bottom with center alignment.
  6. With regard to tables, the situation is somewhat different. They are signed at the top with right alignment. They also have continuous numbering with the first digit corresponding to the section or subsection. The inscription is made as follows - “Table 1”, and the name of the table with a capital letter is indicated on the next line.
  7. As for the design of the report, when typing in Microsoft Office Word, you must choose the font Times New Roman 12 or 14 point size and 1.5 line spacing. In addition, it is important to maintain margins - 20 mm on the left side (used for flashing documents in book format), 5 mm recede along the top, bottom and right edges.


Of course, you can leave this matter to the experts. Personally, I would advise, where I have already been rescued several times. Still, there are situations when you may not have the opportunity or time to write a paper.


References in the report


The list of references must be drawn up when writing the work in the following order with the numbering of each unit:

  1. First, documents such as laws, decrees, orders and codes are indicated.
  2. Then there are other sources of literature, including books, magazines, periodicals.
  3. Without fail, everything is set in alphabetical order based on 1 letter.
  4. How to properly format the title of each book of the magazine and the other is described in detail in the training manual.
  5. Mandatory references to the literature in square brackets are affixed in the text, inside which is the number from the list of references.
  6. If a drawing, graph, diagram, etc. is not made independently, but taken from another source, it should also be referenced in square brackets at the end of the title.

The implementation of all the recommendations will allow you to prepare a high-quality universally presented material. As a result, the performance will be perceived and evaluated positively.
