Summary Report


A summary report is a short, written communication which may have a variety of purposes, such as:

  • To brief the reader on the details of a particular event
  • To analyse a particular issue, draw conclusions and make recommendations
  • To convince the reader of the importance of taking a particular course of action

The ability to present information in a manner that is concise, logical and easy to read is an important skill - one that is valued in education, business and in the community.  The summary report provides LCVP students with the opportunity to gain proficiency in this form of writing.
