reportposted on 19.08.2020 by Christopher J.R. Willmott
A formal account of an observation, investigation, finding, activity or any other type of information.
An activity is described, in which undergraduate students are required to write a ‘report for Government’ in the style of the popular POSTnote briefing documents prepared for members of the UK Parliament, and made accessible on the website of the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology. This authentic assessment task provides students with the opportunity to research a current topic with political implications, and to develop their abilities to write for a lay audience.
