Report Writing
Pestaria, Sinurat and Napitupulu (2014: 29) report is a text which can be written out with a descriptive technique. It describes an object to the readers. The length of the text depends on the specific details of the object being described. A report may be defined to describe  the  way  things  are,  with  reference  to  a  range  of  natural,  man-made  and  social  phenomena  in  our environment.
Maysarah and Rahmah (2014: 4) report text is a text that describes the way things are with reference to a range of natural, man-made and social phenomena in our environment. It presents information about something that is under discussion. Generally, it is written after getting careful observation. Report text is different from descriptive text which describes one particular or specific thing, person, or place, e.g. “My Father”. The basic purpose of report text is to describe general feature of a kind thing, living or non-natural in our environment, e.g. “cat”, and “coat”.
The term report is difficult to define because it refers to such a wide variety of documents.  Reports can be as simple as filling in the blanks or answering a few questions about an  accident, or they can be long and involved requiring years of study, hundreds of contributors, and several thick volumes to record the results.

b.      All reports organize facts into a meaningful presentation.Most reports interpret the information gathered.
c.       Many reports make recommendations.
