I’m trying to study for my Communications course and I need some help to understand this question.
Introduction to Professional Communications, Part 5.5 includes the following checklist for determining whether a report fulfills its goals:
- Report considers the audience’s needs
- Form follows function of report
- Format reflects institutional norms and expectations
- Information is accurate, complete, and documented
- Information is easy to read
- Terms are clearly defined
- Figures, tables, and art support written content
- Figures, tables, and art are clear and correctly labeled
- Figures, tables, and art are easily understood without text support
- Words are easy to read (font, arrangement, organization)
- Results are clear and concise
- Recommendations are reasonable and well-supported
- Report represents your best effort
- Report speaks for itself without your clarification or explanation
In an initial post:
- Locate a proposal or report posted on the internet by an organization (such as an annual report or product report) and attach/link that report.
- Use the checklist from Introduction to Professional Communications, Part 5.5 to determine whether the report or proposal fulfills its goals.
