Discussion: Assessing Proposals and Reports

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.
