 an understanding of basic research theory and techniques
Questions That Relate to Report Structure
What is the research about? Introduction
What is already known in this area? Literature Review
What do I expect to find? Research question
How you went about your research? Methodology
What you found? Results/Findings
What do the results/findings mean? Research significance
So what? What contributions? Discussion
What recommendations? Recommendations
Major Parts to your report
You need to introduce the report, identify what is already known about your topic in the
literature, let the reader know what methodology you used, state the results and discuss them,
identify the conclusions.
The main sections in more detail

 Return to the research questions and suggest whether they’ve been answered or “solved”.
 Return to the objectives and whether they have been achieved?
 Indicate what has been learnt from the study and how it can be applied
 Indicate improvements for the research and future possibilities
