Recommendation Report Formatting Project

This project gives you an introduction to an important type of report—the recommendation report—which is useful in consulting work.

Note: Name your recommendation-report file using your first name and initial followed by _recommrep1 (changing the number with each successive draft): for example, davidm_recommrep1.doc.

If you've not studied recommendation reports yet, see:

To format the text of the recommendation report:

  1. Download the text at http://www.prismnet.com/~tcm/engl2311/guides/new_recomm_practice.doc
  2. Download the first graphic: new_recomm_practice1.gif
  3. Download the second graphic: new_recomm_practice2.gif
  4. Read the instructions at the top of that page. You supply paragraph breaks, headings, numbered and bulleted lists, summary table, and corrections (as listed on the materials page).
  5. Download the template document. This template shows you exactly how your formatting work should look. Just paste your text over the existing text.
  6. The conclusions section is formatted as regular paragraph text. Format it according to the guidelines you see for recommendation reports.
  7. Reformat the material for the summary table as a table. (It is in paragraph form in the materials file.)
  8. Format the information-sources page, using the guidelines at Information sources.
