Outline of Proposed Analytical Report (Essay Sample)
This writing assignment is designed to help you get started on organizing the analytical report. It will be an outline of the report.
We continue with steps in planning for an organizing the analytical report. You will want to read the instructions for the analytical report so that you have an idea of what types of topics to consider as you construct your outline for the report.
For this assignment, you will write an outline, along with some other brief explanations, for the plan for your analytical report.
For your outline, you will submit the following items:
Statement of the problem: This section should be one or two sentences stating the problem you are addressing.
Purpose and scope of the work: This section should be one paragraph explaining why you have conducted your analysis. You will state why you think the problem you are addressing needs to be addressed.
Decision maker or group of decision makers: This section will identify the individual or individuals to whom you are directing the report.
Sources and methods of data collection: This section should be one paragraph explaining how you went about gathering data. You might mention interviews you conducted, searches you conducted in OneSearch, or other methods of information gathering you used.
Preliminary outline: This section could use Roman numerals to outline, even roughly, the plan for the report. You might have, for example, Roman numeral I, with A, B, and C under it; Roman number II, with A, B, and C under it, and Roman numeral III with A, B, and C under it. Overall, you should not need more than three or four Roman numerals. Again, this can even be a fairly rough outline. Do not feel you have to stick with the outline you have developed when you write your actual report.
Note: If you would like to use an alternate organizational method or just start drafting and get two rounds of draft feedback, that is acceptable.
Notes on the final submission (for preparation):
You will then accomplish the following in the report:
Define the problem persuasively and accurately
Propose a solution or solutions to the problem or issue
Present that solution to a decision-maker or group of decision-makers who can implement the recommendation.
The report will include the following components:

The norm of Competence in regards to communicating in many languages is considered a very desirable skill both career-wise and personally; as a result thousands worldwide study one or more second languages. However, there are numerous factors which hinder the learner’s progress and level of proficiency in the second language they choose to study.
