Writing Reports;The core structure of a report has six sections

The following structure can be used for report writing at university level or for report writing in a professional business situation. The principles for research, drafting, editing and rewriting your report are the same as those for essay writing. The only difference is the overall structure.

The core structure of a report has six sections which can be arranged either deductively or

inductively, depending on specific requirements. Employ the inductive style if you want to lead readers through your argument and convince them of your position. For the purposes of 110.209 you

will need to use the inductive style.
