Student Report Examples
  • Kayaking Gear Replacement Project
    A project researching kayaking gear for an outfitting company and recommending replacement gear. To keep graphics and layout in place, these documents are in MSWord format.  Download to view.
    • T.S. Proposal
    • T.S. Progress Report
    • T.S. Final Report
      • Cover - MSWord version of the cover letter accompanying and introducing report.
      • Prefatory Material - MSWord version of the prefatory section (Title Page, ToC, and Exec. Summary).  This is perhaps the easiest way to manage the change in pagination from the prefatory material to the body of your report.
      • Body - MSWord version of the body of the report. (n.b. citation of sources is insufficient in this section; be sure to cite printed source thoroughly and correctly)
  • Desktop Publish Software Report Project
    This project recommends the purchase of a specific desktop publishing software program for a small B&B. This is an online version, so be aware that formatting for print will change the "look" of the document.
  • Career Report
    Final Report researching a career (recommending graduate schools and course of study for a medievalist). Note: this document is only the "body" of the report; it does not contain your required front matter (Title Page, Table of Contents, and Executive Summary)
Online Professional Usability Test Reports
