a causal (not casual!!!) report: What is the cause of this problem? Here’s what I recommend to solve X.
Your report should be an expert analysis of the issues and how the company/group could best use what you propose.
This report should NOT be an informative summary of the issues; rather, explain specifically what you identified and how, when, and why your project will work as a solution to the problem.
The body of the report should be a MINIMUM of 5-6 single-spaced pages NOT including title page, table of contents, executive summary, works cited (references), optional appendices, and visuals. Don’t freak out. With visuals: screenshots, charts and graphs, most of these student reports have gone well over 20 pages.Your report will also inform/persuade the company how and why they will benefit from what you are proposing. See the rubric for the points for each section.
The report should be visually appealing with headings and subsections clearly labeled. The material should be delivered in a combination of short paragraphs and (some) bulleted lists for easy skimming. The report should NOT be entirely made up of long paragraphs or solid text.
You should use a minimum of four (4) visuals, charts or other visual data, in your project, including screenshots of possible redesigns. You may also add this data as appendices and reference them in the body of your project. Please keep in mind that an image/picture does not count as a visual.
You must provide in-text citations and a works cited (references) for all the sources used in the report in MLA or APA format.
You must have a minimum of 5 credible sources (if conducting the HE, three of these may be the Nielsen website articles.) Do not include direct quotes unless they add great value. Paraphrase and or summarize material and provide the proper citation. These sources are used as your support of what professionals report good website construction should have. For example, “According to web researcher Spongebob Squarepants, websites should limit their aquatic images so that viewers do not get seasick (21). Quarterdeck’s website almost appears to be underwater, making use and viewing of the website very difficult and causing seasickness with two out of four testers.”
