Presentation Description

The majority of academic writers are used to formatting their research reports in the “Introduction, Body, and Conclusion” format learned in high school. While this format remains a necessary and continual background for various writing strategies, it should be developed into a more significant outline that encourages students to produce quality reports. The former indicates that a “thesis” be established and followed throughout the report. Moreover, teachers remind students to “stay on focus” and end with a conclusion that “wraps up” the argument stated in the thesis. Again, this is the underlying tenet for most writing assignments; however, there exists a more in-depth and deeper level of reporting: using the Introduction, Methods, Results, and Discussion (IMRAD) format.
