Research Report Template

Template Instructions for Research Report Page

 

Method 1:

The easiest way for students to format a page of their work on the Student Work site with a "template" that creates a uniform look-and-feel for student pages in the course is to choose one of the pre-made templates during the process of creating a new page.

 

  • Step 1: Start Creating a New Page.

    • You can do this either by going to the tab at the top for "Pages & Files" and then clicking "New",
      PBWorks Create New Page tabs
    • Or you can add a link on the site to a not-yet-existing page (like this: Bibliography by Alan Liu), and then (after you have saved the page on which the link resides) click on the link to automatically open the dialogue for creating that new page.

  • Step 2: Before you actually click the button to create the new page, choose one of the pre-made templates for the page.  For example:
    Creating a new page with a template

 

Method 2:

 

  • If you create your page first without a template, then you can cut-and-paste into the page the section between dotted lines below. (This is what would have been put automatically on your new page according to Method 1 above.)
  • Page naming (filename) convention for Research Report: Example, "Research Report by Alan Liu"

 

 

Copy between the dotted lines:

 

Research Report: [Title of your report; the title should refer to the author, work, or project you are reporting on]

 

By [your name, linked to your bio], [name of your team, linked to your team project page] Team

 

  1. Abstract. (100 words or less). [An abstract is an efficient thumbnail summary of the item being reported on--a so-called "executive summary."

     

  2. Description.  The description is a fuller objective explanation fo the item being reported on (basically: who, what, when, how, and/or why).  It may include portions of the annotation you previously wrote for your annotated bibliography as well as quotations from the item in question (if properly cited). Please include screenshots or other images where appropriate.  The goal is to give your reader a good idea of what the item is.

     

  3. Commentary.  Your commentary should include an evaluation of  the opportunities/limitations of the item as applied to your team's project. (What possibilities does this item suggest for your project and its general idea? What problems or limitations does it also suggest?)

     

  4. Resources for Further Study.  This section of the report should be a brief set of follow-up citations or links (including the citation/link to the item under discussion). (Please note the course Wikipedia Use Policy.)
