Short Research Report Criteria
This is a continuation of your research proposal from last week. Now, you are moving forward with a report about that topic and you will be using source material to support your information. Show why:
- the problem needs to be solved
- propose a solution to the problem
- show how that solution is the correct one (use credible sources for support)
- and make predicts about how your solution will improve the organization.
Once you show the seriousness of the problem, then discuss the counterarguments that may arise from your solution, after showing the benefits outweigh the costs of your solution, then argue for your solution using credible sources that agree with your solution. These will persuade your audience that the solution you propose is the correct one.
- MLA Format and include a “Works Cited” page at the end of the report and source citations/attributions within the textual content of the report. Module 22 and the samples in the text will help you type these pieces.
- Two or more pages typed in Memo format with four headings: Introduction, Problem, Solution and Conclusion. You may add two additional headings of your own creation that relate to the topic.
- You must create a solution to the issue, do not use something that someone else/team has done in the past.
- Do not use any contractions or slang, stick to formal language.
- Your subject has to be a “real” issue explored in the textbook – you do not make up anything about this report.
- You are required to use 3 or more “scholarly/credible” sources and these must be cited within your report. Here is the works cited entry for our textbook:
Locker, Kitty O. and Stephen Kyo Kaczmarek. Business Communication-Building Critical Skills. 6th ed. Boston: The McGraw-Hill Companies, 2013.
7. Include one or two visuals in your report: picture, graphic, table, chart, etc. Place the visual appropriately and keep it small–thumbprint to wallet photo size only.
8. Evaluate source materials based on the information in Module 22 of your textbook.
