Do’s and Don’ts of Report Writing:

The following are the do’s and don’ts of report writing that must be keep in mind:

  • Choose a font size that is not too small or too large i.e 12 is a normally good font size to use.
  • Acknowledgement need not be a separate page, except in the final report. In fact, you could just drop it altogether for the first and second stage reports. Your guide already knows how much you appreciate his/her support. Express your gratitude by working harder instead of writing a flowerily acknowledgement.
  • Make sure that your paragraphs have some indentation and that it is not too large. Refer to some text books or journal papers if you are not sure.
  • If figures, equations or trends are taken from some reference, the reference must be cited right there, even if you have cited it earlier.
  • The Correct way of referring to a figure is Fig. 5 or Fig. 1.5 (note that there is a space after Fig.) The same applies to Section, Equation, etc. (e.g. Sec. 2,Eq.3.2).
  • Cite a reference as, for example, “The threshold voltage is a strong function of the implant dose [01].”Note that there must be a space before the bracket.
  • Follow some standard format while writing references. For example you could look up IEEE transaction issue and check out the format for journal papers, books, conference papers, etc.
  • Do not type references (for that matter, any titles or captions) entirely in capital letters. About the only capital letters required are :
  • The First Letter of a name Acronyms.
  • The First Letter of the title of an Article.
  • The First Letter of a sentence.
  • The order of references is very important. In the list of your references, the first reference must be the one which is cited before any other references, and so on. Also, every reference in the list must be cited at least once (this also applies to figures). In handling reference and figure numbers, Latex turns out to be far better than word.
  • Do not make one line paragraph.Always add a space after a full stop, comma, colon, etc.
  • Do not add space before a full stop, comma, colon etc.
  • Do not use “&”; write “And” instead.
  • Whenever in doubt, look up a text book or journal paper to verify whether your grammar and punctuation are correct.
  • Do a spell check before you print out your document.
  • Above all, be clear. Your report must have a flow, i.e. the reader must be able to appreciate continuity in the report. After the first reading, the reader should be able to understand

(i) Overall theme.

(ii) What is new in this report.

Viva/Presentation Preparation:

Presentation of a report is also as important as preparing the project report. All students will be asked to submit the power point presentation on a CD along with the two hard bind copies of training project report on the day of presentation. So while preparing presentation students need to focus on the following issues:

  • What is the purpose of the report and the matter on which the presentation has to focus?
  • The Mode and media of presentation
  • Extent of coverage and Depth to address at
  • Time, Place and Cost associated with presentation
  • Audio – Visual Aids intended to be used.

During the Viva following points need to be taken care:

  • Listen to the question being asked by the member of viva panel.
  • If two or more persons are there for taking viva than start giving answer with who asked the question and then look also to others seating there as viva panel members.
  • Be prepared for any type of questions even may be they ask from outside the report or very common type questions.
  • If you don’t have the idea regarding the question’s asked by the viva panel member then in place of giving wrong answer it is better to directly say sir I don’t have idea about this question’s answer.
  • Thank all the panel members and wish them have a nice day sir / madam.
