Sometimes I have to wonder…
What CO-OP expects when it comes to reports. ‘Cause y’know, I’m looking at the requirements (which they haven’t changed) and I just keep seeing:
You should describe the major tasks you completed. If you were in a project-oriented position, you should describe these projects. Whenever
possible it is advisable to give a detailed write-up of one project and briefly describe the other projects. You could also show your understanding of the purpose of the work and what you have learned.
Which ends up meaning: PUT TECHNICAL INFORMATION EVERYWHERE.
Avoid adding generic descriptions of the company or products unless relevant to your topic.
And then this comes along and I just-
Try to target your report to be understood by your student peers. Avoid using too much specialized jargon with which you have become familiar during the work term and which might be unfamiliar to your peers.
Last I checked, my peers didn’t even understand what coupling was. But we learned that.
So it ends up being: Do not put technical information anywhere. BUT BY THE WAY THIS REPORT NEEDS TO BE TECHNICAL AND DEMONSTRATE YOU LEARNED SOMETHING RELEVANT TO YOUR PROGRAM. Like what.
