A report is a very useful type of writing, professionally as well as academically. It is much like a summary in that it covers “what happened” or “what was said,” but is not necessarily as brief or impersonal as a summary. Also, although the body of the report tends to be very objective and informative, its conclusion may be subjective – suggesting areas for further investigation, an interpretation of the reported data, or perhaps a recommendation on how others should proceed based on the reported information. As always, check with your instructor for specific guidelines regarding the type of report you are writing.

Please see below for an example of a Report written by a Chabot student.
